MP Nathan Cullen starts visit to islands Sunday

  • Mar. 10, 2006 5:00 p.m.

MP Nathan Cullen is coming to the islands this week for his first visit since he was re-elected in the January federal election.
Constituency assistant Matt Pearson said Mr. Cullen will be arriving in Sandspit on Sunday (March 12) and meeting with groups there before heading over to Graham Island Sunday evening.
He’ll be spending time in Queen Charlotte and Skidegate on Monday, heading north to Port Clements, Masset and Old Massett on Tuesday, then flying out of Masset on Wednesday (March 15).
Mr. Pearson said the MP is planning to touch base with several groups he hasn’t met with previously, like the QCI Women’s Society, Queen Charlotte council and the Haida Gwaii Tourism Association. He’s also planning to meet with Skidegate chief councillor Willard Wilson and Massett chief councillor Elizabeth Moore.
Mr. Cullen is also hoping to talk to ordinary islanders in the course of his three-day visit.
“He wants to go out, meet with folks, see what they’re thinking,” Mr. Pearson said.
Mr. Cullen’s last visit to the islands was in December. He also held a series of open houses here in November.
