MP Nathan Cullen is making a four-day visit to Haida Gwaii this week and wants to talk to as many islanders as he can. Mr. Cullen, who was re-elected for the fourth time in the May federal election, will be arriving on the islands Friday, July 15 and spending most of that day in Queen Charlotte. Member’s assistant Roari Richardson said Mr. Cullen plans to meet with Queen Charlotte council in the morning, and will be holding a meet and greet at Queen B’s cafe from 3-5 pm that afternoon. Everyone is welcome to drop in and say hello, or speak to Mr. Cullen about any issues or concerns. Next, he’ll be heading to Skidegate to take in some of the Skidegate Days events and have dinner at Roberta Olsen’s. Saturday morning, he’ll be hanging out at Skidegate Days then taking the Kwuna over to Sandspit for a couple of hours. On Sunday, Mr. Cullen will be holding a meet and greet at the Crow’s Nest in Tlell in the morning, then spending the afternoon in Port Clements and the evening in Masset. Monday morning finds him in Old Massett, and Monday afternoon and evening in Masset. Mr. Richardson said Mr. Cullen is particularly interested in meeting with commercial fishermen who have concerns about the recent shutdown of the troll fishery. Mr. Cullen’s schedule is flexible and he has lots of time available for meetings with individual islanders or groups, Mr. Richardson said. If you’d like to make an appointment to speak to Mr. Cullen while he is on Haida Gwaii, you can set that up by emailing Mr. Richardson at cullen@parl.gc.ca
