Despite a strong show of support, Nanaimo City Council isn’t ready to back a paddling centre.
Several people came out to Monday night’s Council meeting to try to convince the City to add the $4.7 million project at the Brechin boat launch to the priority list.
But they only had one Councillor on side: Diane Brennan. She cautioned against rejecting the project, even at this early stage.
Council did agree, however, to review the current priority list and get City staff to take a closer look at the paddling centre idea, but there’s no firm timeline.
