Island Corridor Foundation to hold public meetings around Island

First meeting to be held in Duncan on Nov. 7

The Island Corridor Foundation will be holding a series of town hall-style discussions around Vancouver Island in November.

The first one, and the only one to be held in Cowichan Valley, will be held on Nov. 7 at Duncan’s Ramada Inn, 140 Trans-Canada Hwy, beginning at 7 p.m.

The discussions will be hosted by the ICF’s new CEO Larry Stevenson, Andrea Thomas, manager of corridor development, and Nicole Norris, the ICF’s First Nations liaison.

The meetings are intended to be informal discussions about the foundation, what it is and what it does, and also to bring everyone up to date on what has been happening with the rail corridor.
