GDCC Supports Ferry Fiscal Fairness Campaign

The Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce fully supports the Powell River Chamber of Commerce's campaign to make Fiscal Fairness part of the BC Ferry Corporation's mandate.

GDCC President Dean Walford stated:  "As we enter yet another round of 'public engagement' about service cuts,  we still see no sign of either real consultation or real accountability to the users of the system."

"Our region's population is growing, yet we are receiving less and less service for more and more money. High fares hurt local businesses, residents and particularly the tourism industry, which is has become an increasingly important sector as coastal economies shift away from traditional resource based industries."

"We are not asking for a free ride," said Walford.  "We are asking for fair treatment as taxpayers and citizens."
