After receiving 70+ requests from you to do so, as your Regional Director, I have secured a meeting with Darshan Sihota, President of Island Timberlands for January 23rd in Nanaimo.
Now I want to hear from you.
What message do you want me to take from you to that meeting? I represent you, residents and landowners of Cortes. I have booked the Gorge Hall for Tuesday the 17th at 7 pm to hear from you. Come to this public meeting and tell me what you would like to have conveyed. Bring any written material with you that I can take for submission. ALL perspectives welcome. I will not be asking for consensus and fully expect a range of opinions. They can all be spoken and shared, and I will do my best to convey them all to Darshan Sihota the following week.
I am calling this meeting the first in the 'Speak-Easy' series where we come together as a community to discuss topical issues in a respectful space that welcomes all.
I strongly encourage participation in person, even if only to listen, as I am sure there is something you will learn from someone else there. However, if you cannot attend in person, please send me any written submissions to directorcortesisland.com or call me at 250-935-0320.
