A Letter from Leonard: Defending Our Coast

On Monday, January 7th, I had an opportunity to attend  part of the meeting organized by Michelle Corfield and others, protesting the privatization, by way of a long term lease, of the Nanaimo Boat Basin.  Close to 300 people were out, from infants to seniors, all expressing their frustration at the decision of the Port Authority to enter into a long term lease firstly, without sufficient consultation with the Snuneymuxw First Nation, as well as the people who live on Protection Island and others who use the boat basin.  Along with myself, Ron Cantelon, representatives from Jean Crowder’s and Doug Routley’s offices attended, and five of our City Councillors; Fred Pattje, Diane Brennan, Diana Johnstone, Jim Kipp and Bill McKay.

Democracy appears to be alive and well in Nanaimo and people are prepared to be heard.  All in all a great day, with the promise of more action to come.

Yours very truly,

Leonard Krog, MLA

Nanaimo
