|The Ice House Gallery and its leasing situation with the
Prince Rupert Port Authority made for some comments from
City Councillor Barry Cunningham on Tuesday evening
Prince Rupert City Councillor Barry Cunningham has put himself into the conversation of the fate of a local Artists space on the Prince Rupert waterfronts, with the city councillor speaking out in support of the Ice House Gallery and its current rental situation with the Prince Rupert Port Authority.
The topic came out of a correspondence for the City Council Constent Agenda, a letter to Council from Prince Rupert resident and Cruise Ship Volunteer Judy Warren, who provided a few themes for discussion upon the lead up to the 2023 Cruise Ship season in the city.

For a bit of background to the issue, we outlined the Current status of the situation back in March, the Port at the time explaining the leasing situation as follows:
"The lease for the space that the Ice House Gallery currently occupies is expiring later this year and the Prince Rupert Port Authority intends to engage in an open-bid process for a tenant in that location.
