Gwaii Haanas strike continues

  • Aug. 25, 2004 4:00 p.m.

Two more federal parks workers walked off the job late Monday afternoon, but you can still visit Gwaii Haanas if you want to.
As of Tuesday afternoon, eight employees involved in communications, computer maintenance and small engine repair were off the job on information pickets, said Gwaii Haanas superintendent Ernie Gladstone. Then on Wednesday, workers were on a general strike.

Morning orientations at the Queen Charlotte Visitor Information Centre have been cancelled, as has the weekly Spirit Lake Trail interpretive walk.

But orientation sessions are available in the evening at the Queen Charlotte Visitor Information Centre and in the afternoon at the Sandspit Visitor Information Centre.
