Lethbridge Chamber Of Commerce Deems Annual Meeting Successful

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: A team from the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce has returned from a successful trip to the 2013 Canadian Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting.

 

The local group managed to get two resolutions passed by the national body.

 

The first was the renewal of a water strategy for all of Canada, and Lethbridge Chamber President Bruce Galts explains its focus, "The intent there is that we have a broad based strategy that protects our water, deals with the legalities of it crossing boundaries between provinces and make sure that everyone's taken care of, as well as weigh the interests of the various stake holders, environment and ag and municipal interests and that type of thing."

 

Galts also outlined the second resolution, "It's a pharmaceutical initiative, we call it the Thebaine Opportunity, and for the last few years we've been doing test plots here, approved test plots in the area to grow thebaine poppies. The next step is to do some broad based testing and then ultimately that leads to the pharmaceutical industry."

 

Thebaine poppies can be used to produce pain killers like codeine, something that Canada currently has to import from other countries.
