The Chamber held its 2022 AGM on Tuesday, with about 130 people gathering for our largest in-person event in two years.
Attendees celebrated the success of The Chamber and heard from the Hon. Rob Fleming, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, about the province's plans for helping the region recover from the pandemic.
Fleming spoke about plans to rebuild and improve roads and other infrastructure damaged by climate events in 2021. The minister also spoke about creating rapid bus corridors in the region, and making the business case for modernizing Belleville Terminal. "The time is now to make that investment," Fleming told the audience.
Other topics that The Chamber has advocated for included investing in a deep water port on Vancouver Island to help BC's supply chain, creating a transit hub at Uptown and investing in shore power at Ogden Point.
