PORT HARDY—Priorities for transportation on Vancouver Island will be discussed during a series of stakeholder meetings hosted by Jordan Sturdy, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, which began this week in Victoria.

Meetings will take place in seven Island communities, including Port Hardy on Sept. 16.
