Nanaimo – Tony Harris issued the following statement on Nanaimo’s need for a foot passenger ferry service from Nanaimo harbour to Vancouver harbour:
“Nanaimo is the economic hub of the Mid and North Island and the gateway for so many businesses and travellers who come to the Island to enjoy our lifestyle and welcoming communities. There is no question that there is demand for a foot ferry passenger service.
More and more Nanaimoites are commuting to Vancouver for work and more people from the Lower Mainland are coming to the Island, making a foot passenger ferry service essential and Nanaimo needs an MLA with the energy and determination to get us there.
I’m asking voters for a chance to prove myself – hire me and I’ll work my tail off. As voters in Nanaimo, you have a tremendous opportunity right here in front of you to send a new voice to Victoria for the better this by-election.
I want to assure everyone in Nanaimo that I will be an MLA for each and every one of you, and I’m asking for your support.”
