Port Hardy Mayor Bev Parnham will continue her duties this spring, albeit from hospital as she recovers from illness.

The mayor is recuperating with the support of her family and close friends, following a serious illness that resulted in a hospital stay over the holiday break.

“The immediate attention and outstanding efforts given by the North Island medical staff, the medical transfer team and the medical staff at the Campbell River and Royal Jubilee Hospitals are to be given the utmost praise,” she said. “I could not have had a better healthcare team.”

Mayor Parnham will continue to work via electronic media, with the support of council and Deputy Mayor Jessie Hemphill, to help ensure that Port Hardy continues to see success in its strategic initiatives.

“Our council and Deputy Mayor have a good understanding of the issues facing our community and will play a key role in providing continuity of service during my recovery,” she explained.

The mayor expressed appreciation for the outpouring of support that she and her family have received and said she looks forward to returning to the North Island in the near future.

Any inquiries for the mayor’s office can be directed to the District Municipal Hall by calling 250-949-6665 or sending an e-mail to:
