Mount Moresby Adventure Camp would like to take over the crown lease on the land at Mosquito Lake. Executive director of MMAC, Jonathan Ebbs, asked the Moresby Island Management Committee if they would make a motion that would allow the Mount Moresby Adventure Camp Society to apply for a premature renewal on its 10-year land license. The original license was granted from the Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District to MIMC and the Recreation Committee in Sandspit. “Does that mean we are relinquishing control,” asked MIMC committee member Gord Usher at the Oct. 10 meeting. When other members said, yes, that is what this means, another committee member, Duane Gould, wanted assurance that the society had a board and was in good standing. MIMC Chair Gail Henry said the society was hard working and running effectively. With that assurance, the committee made the motion to support MMAC in taking over the lease.
