MLA shares success of port and pays tribute to Don Krusel with Legislature Statement

North Coast MLA shared some background
notes with the Legislature on some recent
events at the Port of Prince Rupert.

North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice used a portion of yesterday's Statement's portion of the Legislature session to bring an update on some of the developments from the Port of Prince Rupert, with Ms. Rice putting much of her focus on the recent opening of the Fairview Container Terminal Expansion project.

In addition to the recap of the August celebration and the excitement that it brought to the community, the MLA also took note of some of the other economic developments in the Prince Rupert region.

As part of her two minute review for the legislature she also offered up some thoughts on the recent announcement of the retirement of Don Krusel from the port, paying tribute and offered thanks to the vision that he brought to the Port during his time with the PRPA and in the community.

For the members in the House, she observed the path that Don Krusel had to travel to deliver the new gateway for the province and the North Coast and highlighted how it was his vision that put Prince Rupert in the spotlight for international trade.

 "The idea of selling a world class container port in the remote north coast city was laughable at the time he said, people would ask him where Prince Rupert was on a map. Ten  years later having guided the organization through the expansion, it's safe to say that Don Krusel can be credited for putting Prince Rupert on the map of international trade"
