Shelter season

As the weather improves, an end is called to the extreme weather alert.

Dear editor,

I have been designated under the Assistance to Shelter Act as the Community Representative for the Mt. Waddington Region (Port Hardy, Port McNeill, Port Alice, Alert Bay), British Columbia.

On November 1, 2012 I issued an Extreme Weather Alert and requested RCMP “E” HQ OCC sent it to the detachment responsible for policing the of the Mt. Waddington Region.

As of April 1, 2013 there is no longer a need for the EWA to remain in effect and, as such, I am issuing a cancellation of the EWA. This cancellation of an EWA is being issued due to improved weather conditions and forecast as well as an end to the Extreme Weather Shelter season.

We would like to thank all of our community partners and staff for providing a warm and safe EWS.

We could not have done this without you.

 

Sean Junglas

Community Ministries Director,
