Made on Haida Gwaii: Evan Putterill leads with passion for environmental issues

Evan Putterill speaks at the legislature in Victoria as part of a celebration of the Haida Gwaii Reconciliation Act.

This is the second installment of the 'Made on Haida Gwaii' feature series, by writer April Diamond Dutheil. Each week we showcase the story of a talented young person who calls Haida Gwaii home. In this vast country, our major urban centres tend to soak up most of the attention. This collection of success stories, about young people living on these beautiful but remote islands off the Pacific coast, aims to disrupt the dominant myths of what it means to grow up in Canada’s North.
