Halibut Task Force extends thanks

The Town Hall Meeting was a huge success due to the efforts of everyone involved. I am especially proud of all the members of the Kitimat Halibut Allocation Task Force.

Dear sir,

The Town Hall Meeting was a huge success due to the efforts of everyone involved. I am especially proud of all the members of the Kitimat Halibut Allocation Task Force.

I can not emphasis enough the outstanding job everyone on the Task Force did to make our Town Hall Meeting the success that it was.

All Task Force members deserve to look in the mirror and smile.

I am proud to say that I am from Kitimat and even more proud to represent Kitimat and the Task Force on the BC Sport Fishing Coalition Steering Committee.

The support from the businesses and individuals from Kitimat and Terrace was unbelievable.  On behalf of the Task Force, thank you.

Worthy on note, Sergio Amaral donated the proceeds he won in our 50/50 draw back to the Task Force.  Thank you Sergio. Gotta love the passion and support from everyone!

Mayor Monaghan, Nathan Cullen (MP), Robin Austin (MLA), and all the residents of Kitimat and our neighbours in the Northwest will send a clear message to Ottawa.

The Conservative government will be held accountable on election day!

I urge everyone to write a letter to the prime minister, especially those who attended the Town Hall meeting.

Please also help your family, friends, neighbours and co-workers to also write letters.

The “Power of One” strategy starts with you.

If everyone does their small part, collectively we can make a big difference!

Sincerely,

Ron Wakita,

Chairman,

Kitimat Halibut Allocation Task Force.
