Nelson-Creston MLA Michelle Mungall reached out to pop star Miley Cyrus this week and invited her to tour the habitat of locally endangered mountain caribou.

Cyrus made headlines last month when she criticized the B.C. government’s wolf cull, an extermination program aimed at saving the mountain caribou from extinction.

Premier Christy Clark rebuffed the star, saying she would contact her if she needed advice on twerking.

Mungall is hoping to leverage Cyrus’ star power “to better engage and inform the broader public” on what she calls “a very complex issue”. Earlier this week Mungall tweeted Cyrus a letter inviting her to the Selkirks to collaborate on solutions that will be beneficial to wolves, caribou and the habitat they share.

“Whether Miley takes me up on my invitation or not, it is important that we continue to build understanding around this issue,” said Mungall.

“Habitat protection must be the long-term solution that we are working towards to protect both caribou and wolves.”
