Half a million for Queen Charlotte

  • Aug. 27, 2008 4:00 p.m.

Taxpayers in Queen Charlotte can breathe a bit of a sigh of relief, after the province contributed $400,000 for the village’s water system. That’s about half the amount the village needed to borrow to move the intake, as approved by residents in a referendum in June. In the photo, Minister of State Linda Reid is announcing the grant on Tuesday morning in Queen Charlotte.”It’s going to save the individual taxpayer a lot of money,” Queen Charlotte Mayor Carol Kulesha said, “This is very generous We are unbelievably happy, thank you so much.” Ms Reid also announced a $100,000 contribution to the village for its Spirit Square development, which will see the old All West Glass building torn down and replaced with a community square. The village bought the property a couple of years ago with Gwaii Trust funding.
