Mayor Mussallem provides Rupert overview for Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce
Beyond the short thumbnail sketch of the proposed LNG hopes for the city, the Mayor explained how the growth of the Container Port has revitalized the local economy, also reviewing some of the options for the Watson Island site that he hopes to see develop.
He also took time to provide a bit of background on the current dispute between North Coast communities and the province over cutbacks to the BC Ferry system, putting in his plug for more frequent sailings of the Alaska Marine Highway system to Prince Rupert as well.
You can learn more of the Mayor's presentation from Ketchkian's public radio station KRBD, which delivered this report, as well as some audio to go with it on Monday.
