Village of Alert Bay: Gordon, Kane — council candidate

Kane Gordon

My name is Kane Gordon and I have lived in the community of Alert Bay all my life. I am an Electrical Contractor and Chief of the Alert Bay Volunteer Fire Department.

First of all, I would like to say how much I have enjoyed working with my fellow council members and Mayor this past term. The council was made up of a diverse group of committed individuals, each person with their own personal strengths and skills. The reason I have decided to seek another term on council is because I want to contribute and be a part of the process, and see our community grow and prosper financially.

If I am re-elected, I would like to push for a major expansion and upgrade to our Harbour Facilities. I believe this is a key component to stimulating the local economy of our island. I feel we need more capacity in our boat harbour to attract more visitors to stay and enjoy the attractions of our island community.

Another business I feel we need is a marine fuel dock. The Village and the ‘Namgis First Nation are currently working together on an economic development strategy to revitalize our community. It is my hope we can work together on the major expansion to the harbour facilities and marine fuel dock.

Ongoing work includes infrastructure upgrades on our sewer system and repairs to our Town Square seawall. This past term, we have seen renovations to the exterior of our Community Hall, with interior upgrades still to be done. Other projects the Village has been working on this past term include building a grand stand behind the Community Hall. It is our hope that this will continue to promote and attract more outdoor music and entertainment events.

I wish all my fellow candidates the very best in this election and hope to be re-elected so I can work towards making our community a more vibrant, prosperous place to live.
