Quote about Ian Campbell from Business in Vancouver article June 7, 2018 written by

Reporter Jacob Parry: Chief Ian Campbell of the Squamish First Nation has a message for the denizens of Vancouver: “We’re coming home to our own lands.” Campbell, age 43, is a sixth-generation descendent of chief Khatasalano and, since birth, head of the 4,000-person nation. After briefly considering a career in heavy-duty mechanics post-high school, Campbell assumed a tribal leadership position at age 26 as cultural ambassador and negotiator, securing land treaty settlements with the federal and provincial government. Today, he’s the lead negotiator on pivotal files such as the proposed Woodfibre LNG plant in Squamish and nearby Garibaldi Resort, as well the more than $1 billion in real estate that the nation controls in its traditional territory, running from Whistler to Vancouver’s west side. In April, the Squamish—in partnership with the Tsleil-Waututh and Musqueam First Nations—purchased the provincial government’s share of the Jericho Lands in Vancouver’s Point Grey for $480 million.

Reporter Dan Fumano: .... "Ian Campbell, the man who will lead Vision into October’s municipal election, is not a typical real estate developer. In fact, Campbell says he’s not in the real estate business at all.

Campbell is a hereditary chief of the Squamish Nation and elected member of its council. He was also, until recently, a member of the board of directors of the MST Development Corporation, a partnership of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations which owns “six prime properties throughout Metro Vancouver,” according to its website, totaling more than 160 acres of developable land, valued at over $1 billion."
