An ad hoc group is organizing an islands-wide society to get broadband on the islands, Ron McKee told the Queen Charlotte management committee October 6.
Last April at a meeting of the Gwaii Trust and community representatives, the trust asked that a committee be organized to implement the broadband proposal, said Mr. McKee.
At that time, about five people got together, but 18 are now involved in the process of creating a society to create and manage broadband services for the islands. The committee needs letters of support from various councils and committees, and the management committee agreed to write a letter expressing their support for the project.
