In Part 2 of this two-part video series, meet Toquaht Chief Anne Mack and other local leaders who say the new connection is one more stepping stone to attracting people back home and creating more opportunities, especially for youth, in education, culture, health care and business. The Toquaht Nation community of Macoah is the first to be connected, with others scheduled to come online by March 2017. The joint project is a partnership between the Province of British Columbia, TELUS, BC Hydro and the Pathways to Technology initiative. The new fibre connection dramatically improves Internet and wireless capacity, connecting many for the first time. View more videos at http://bit.ly/2cyAMIk
