City of Quesnel: Smokehouse structurally unsound

Press Release

The City of Quesnel, in discussion with Lhtako Dene Nation, will be removing the smokehouse located next to the Riverfront Trail, north of the Fraser River Walking Bridge on May 16, 2022.

After a thorough inspection from the City’s Chief Building Inspector, the smokehouse was determined unfit for use due to structural safety issues. Weather, age and multiple interior fires are the main cause of the disrepair.

There are no plans to replace the smokehouse. The City is working with Lhtako Dene Nation on multiple projects that will bring their culture back to their traditional lands. Projects include developing interpretive signage and sculptures along the Fraser River waterfront, seeking funding for the Indigenous Cultural Centre and developing a Residential School Commemoration in the plaza located at St Laurent Ave and Vaughan St, beside City Hall.
