Teck delivers $1 million donation to Kootenay portion of Trans Canada Trail
Ed Note: The following is a press release issued by Teck Resources:
Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TCK.A and TCK.B, NYSE: TCK) (“Teck”) today announced a $1 million investment to support the completion of a section of the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) connecting communities in the Kootenays.
“The Trans Canada Trail is part of our shared Canadian heritage, linking people and communities from coast to coast,” said Don Lindsay, president and CEO of Teck. “Many of our employees live and work in the Kootenays, and this investment will help to connect their communities and families, while also helping to build this national legacy for all Canadians.”
The Trans Canada Trail is the world’s longest network of recreational trails. The British Columbia section of the Trail is 76-per-cent complete. Teck’s investment will help support completion of sections of the Trail linking together the communities of Trail, Cranbrook, Kimberley, Fernie, Sparwood and Elkford.
“This is an important leadership gift to the Trans Canada Trail. We are proud to have Teck join other Chapter 150 donors who are committed to connecting the Trail by Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017,” said Deborah Apps, president and CEO of the TCT. “Teck’s contribution will help us write another important chapter of this national story and will benefit communities in the Kootenays for generations to come.”
When fully connected, the Trans Canada Trail will stretch 23,000 kilometres from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic Oceans, linking 1,000 communities and more than 34 million Canadians. Today, more than 16,800 kilometres of Trail are developed and used by millions of Canadians and international visitors to hike, cycle, cross country ski, horseback ride, canoe and snowmobile.
