We are so thankful to hear the announcement from Premier John Horgan and Huu-ay-aht Chief Councillor Robert J. Dennis Sr. that the province is partnering with Huu-ay-aht First Nations in support of a $30.7 million dollar investment to upgrade the Anacla/Bamfield Road. This project will be transformational for the BMSC and ensure that generations have the opportunity for safe passage to experience life-changing exploration and discovery in this beautiful environment. We would like to thank Minister Fraser and the many people who have worked together to help make Bamfield and Anacla a safer places to live while creating tremendous opportunities for the future of this community.

This news also comes on the one year anniversary since the UVic bus tragedy. The BMSC continues to reflect on the passing of Emma Machado and John Geerdes and the countless students and families impacted. Although nothing can erase the pain of their loss, these much needed safety improvements to the Bamfield Road will help ensure that an accident like this never happens again.
