Lake Country members mark CoC week in B.C.
It was Chamber of Commerce Week province-wide, and the Lake Country Chamber of Commerce took part by attending a luncheon with chamber members from across the region.
Provincial Chamber president John Winter gave a stringent speech on the importance of B.C.’s resource economy and the aggregate peril of activist nimby-ism.
Winter gave measured praise to the recent B.C. budget during the speech saying, “These are not ordinary times and the government succeeded in meeting the balancing act challenge.”
When questioned after the speech about the ongoing infrastructure deficit and funding problem for communities especially Lake Country, Winter was guarded. “It was a status quo budget, unfortunately I can’t give much more optimism than that.”
Lake Country Chamber of Commerce president Marvin Farkas and board members Garth Donhauser and Katrine Schibler also attended the meeting.
