Mayor Mike Ruttan and members of the Coulson Group are heading to Ottawa today.
A government business panel has invited the Coulson Group to talk about removing red-tape and hurdles that interfere with their profit margins.
Courtenay – Alberni MP Gord Johns asked that the Coulson Group be amongst the select group of businesses invited to the meeting.
Johns will meet with the Port Alberni group while they’re in Ottawa, and Mayor Ruttan also plans to knock on doors seeking support for the Port Alberni Transhipment Hub project, and lobbying for changes to the RCMP funding formula.
Ruttan said he’s not sure what he’ll say to the federal panel as it depends on questions they ask.
