Egg prices are set for an uptick in the coming months owing to climate related disasters affecting production, says Daybreak Farms, northwest B.C.’s biggest egg producers.

Dangeli jests that his maternal grandmother worries she might find it difficult to communicate with her grandson who knows more of the language than she ever has her whole life. 

“I tell her not to worry, Hayetsk will teach you,” said Dangeli whose battle to revive the dialect of the Tsimshian people is slowly materializing as a tiny army of toddlers begin to adopt it as a first language.
