The meeting was described as ‘historic’ and the ‘first ever’, as Roberta Bowman of the Prince Rupert Chamber of Commerce attended a meeting of the QCI chamber in Port last Wednesday.
“This is the first step to building a bridge between the Prince Rupert chamber and the QCI chamber,” Ms Bowman, executive director of the Rupert group, said, ” I feel really honoured to be here today. I am pleased and honoured. We can create a good alliance and let the voice of business be heard.”
Ms Bowman said she loves her job, and loves to be able to help create an alliance. “Together, we stand together,” she said. She also said it was particularly important for both communities right now, given the situation with the ferry.
It was likely the first time that a member of the Rupert chamber has ever visited the chamber here.
