15 MST DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
URBAN REAL ESTATE DEVELOPERS PREVIOUSLY # 10,2017
The pact that represents the foray of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-waututh Nations into real estate looms large, as the group has holdings in some of Metro Vancouver’s largest, most valuable swaths of land. But there are still questions around what exactly MST plans to do with its properties, which include more than 160 acres worth more than $1 billion. 2017 was also supposed to be the year in which former Squamish hereditary chief Ian Campbell gained the mayor’s chair with his Vision Vancouver bid. That didn’t go so smoothly; Campbell resigned when uncomfortable realities surfaced about his past. Once one of three faces of MST, it’s not known whether he’ll jump back in the saddle after he left his elected position with the First Nation to run for mayor.
