As they say it's how you greet someone that makes a lasting impression. So we found of interest the observations of Prince Rupert from Rupert Potter, the Consul General of the UK to the Vancouver High Commission.
The Consul General offered up some thoughts on his recent trip to Prince Rupert, culled from his attendance at the Northern Ports Symposium of last month.
The early take from the opening paragraph it would seem, is that maybe a few aesthetic refinements might be required at the Prince Rupert Airport and perhaps, if possible, a bit more information for the travelling public on the epic journey ahead just to reach the city.
The Consul General in addition to learning the ways of air travel on the North Coast, found the scenery stunning, the welcome warm and the streets somewhat subdued, giving him cause for thought as to how the lack of hustle and bustle meshed with the economic prospects he heard that were just on the horizon.
