More time to speak up on ferries

  • Jun. 9, 2014 11:00 a.m.

Misty Islands Economic Development Society is giving islanders more time to speak up about how ferry cuts are affecting their lives, extending the deadline for submissions to Friday June 20.”We want to create a report that really hits home. To let them know this isn’t just about BC Ferries and the ministry losing money on these routes,” MIEDS Economic Development Officer Heather Adel told the Observer May 26, “They’re crippling our communities and making it difficult for local businesses to survive.”Information received from islanders and island businesses will be compiled to create a report that will be sent to the Ministry of Transportation, BC Ferries and other effected coastal communities.MIEDS would like to hear from people, but is appreciative if economic values or losses can be attached to how islanders have been affected.Anonymity will be respected for both individuals and businesses to ensure privacy and to protect proprietary information.Contact MIEDS with info by e- mail at admin@mieds.ca, by phone at 559-8050 or at 113 Oceanview Drive, Queen Charlotte between 11 am and 4 pm.
