Both MP Nathan Cullen and MLA Gary Coons will visit the islands soon, and plan to take part in the big Skidegate Days festivities upcoming next week.Mr. Cullen made a special point of organizing his visit to the islands to coincide with Skidegate’s celebration, which he missed by just a couple of days last year, constituency assistant Matthew Pearson said. “He’ll probably start with the pancake breakfast in the morning and end with the salmon barbecue,” he said. “He is definitely excited about Skidegate Days. He definitely made it a priority in his schedule.” Mr. Cullen is also looking forward to touring the incredible new Haida Heritage Centre at Qay’llnagaay. After the weekend, Mr. Cullen will be meeting with consituents in Masset, Port Clements and Queen Charlotte, Mr. Pearson said. Mr. Coons said he and his wife, Lois Elliot, will be arriving by ferry July 19 and riding their bikes around the islands for about five days. He plans to attend the Friday night Haida feast in Skidegate and the events throughout the day on Saturday. On Sunday (July 22), he’ll be in Tlell for a meet and greet at the Rising Tide Bakery from 11 am until 1 pm. He also wants to visit other communities while he’s here, but hasn’t set a firm schedule yet. Mr. Coons, who has ridden his bike here before, said it’s the perfect way to get around the islands, great exercise and carbon neutral.
