MP Cullen to visit in January

  • Dec. 20, 2004 1:00 p.m.

Skeena MP Nathan Cullen will be visiting the islansd for a couple of days in January, his first visit here since the summer.
Constituency assistant Matt Pearson said Mr. Cullen is planning to arrive on the islands the evening of Jan. 10. He’ll spend the next day, Jan. 11, in Old Massett, Masset and Port. On Jan. 12, he’ll be in Skidegate, Queen Charlotte and Sandspit, and he leaves the next day.
Mr. Pearson said the NDP MP is coming because he has a small chunk of time in January and wanted to visit parts of the riding that are difficult to get to.
“It’s a chance for as many people to see him as possible,” he said. “He hasn’t been there since the summerÂ… Haida Gwaii was a priority this time.”
Mr. Cullen has a meeting with Haida Nation president Guujaaw already scheduled but not much else has been arranged yet, Mr. Pearson said. He’ll probably spend a couple of hours in a café like Haida Rose in Old Massett, just socializing with islanders, he said.
We’ll have more details in early January.
