There have been some significant achievements for the Island Corridor Foundation over the past year.
CEO of the Island Corridor Foundation, Graham Bruce cites the partnership with the Alberni Pacific Railway and the RDN’s trail construction from Parksville to Coombs.
Bruce was speaking to the members of the board and the public who had gathered for the Foundation’s AGM in Nanaimo.
He says the Victoria to Courtenay route cannot proceed with the Nanoose First Nation claim unresolved and so Southern Rail will be focusing on other areas of development but Bruce says getting projects accomplished is not easy….
He says a big frustration for the Foundation was that the federal government did not sign off on their contribution to the project and now, with so much time passing, a new submission is required.
