Fulton, who succumbed to cancer on December 20, 2008 served as the New Democratic Party (NDP) MP of the Skeena riding for four consecutive terms from 1979 to 1993.  Over that period, Jim maintained a positive working relationship with the leadership of the then Nisga’a Tribal Council in their efforts to achieve what has since become the Nisga’a Treaty.
