Trevena holds series of North Island community consultations

North Island MLA Claire Trevena held a series of community consultation meetings on the North Island.

North Island MLA Claire Trevena held a series of community consultation meetings this week.

Trevena visited the North Island communities of Port McNeill, Port Alice, Port Hardy, Sointula, and Alert Bay.

The MLA stopped in at the Regional District of Mount Waddington board of directors meeting Oct. 18 to present a plaque, recognizing its 50th anniversary, to Chair David Rushton.

“I always describe our North Island communities as resilient,” said Trevena, adding that through thick and thin, through the good times and the bad times have managed to “feed that sense of community, sense of worth, and sense of self and feed the economy of the province as well.”

“Here’s to the next 50 years,” she said.
