Tourism operators in Campbell River say they’re booking up fast this summer and as a result hotels rooms are a hot commodity.

“We’re seeing occupancy rates over 82 per cent consistently over the year, which is about 11 per cent over the provincial average and we saw a six per cent increase over 2017, so we’re definitely feeling a bit of a squeeze,” said Destination Campbell River Executive Director Kirsten Soder.

They’re coming mainly from Europe, Australia, and the United States and whale watching is one of the biggest draws.

Business at Discovery Marine Safaris is already up 15 per cent this year.

“I’m happy that finally, the word is out that Campbell River has so much to offer that people are actually considering going whale watching here because the wildlife is right at our doorstep,” said Heike Garton of Discovery Marine Safaris.

Dolphins Resort has been entertaining tourists from around the world since the 1940s. The rooms still have a rustic charm and the views are quintessential Vancouver Island.

“There’s a lot of demand for our accommodation this coming summer and the summer is often very busy here, although we’ve noticed it’s gotten busier and busier over the last few years,” said Dolphins Resort General Manager Paul Dowler.

Tourists are also looking for ways to see the sights by bike or kayak, and Island Joyrides is seeing an increased interest in Campbell River.

“Cycling is picking up in general so I know those tours are going to be busier but kayaking is this whole new angle and way to showcase Campbell River and I anticipate it getting quite busy,” said Island Joyrides owner Laurel Cronk.

Visitors can then enjoy a chef-cooked meal prepared in a wood-fired pizza oven right on the shores of the Campbell River.

The world and even Vancouver Islanders are rediscovering Campbell River.

We’re lesser known certainly that some of the other destinations on the island and in the province,” said Laurel Sliskovic, a guide with Island Joyrides.

“And people are kind of rediscovering it,” continued Soder. “It’s not the Campbell River we used to be.”

“Art brings people together, and is so important for community building,” said MLA Trevena. “I’m always delighted to see investments in local creativity, but I’m especially proud that our government is supporting arts and culture projects designed to promote healing and Indigenous cultural resiliency.”

Recipients on the North Island benefiting from this latest round of grants include:

The Community Resilience Through Arts and Culture program funds projects that use the restorative power of art and culture to inspire community engagement and to bring healing in response to environmental, social and economic hardships. Now in its second year, the program is distributing 83 grants to communities across the province.

MLA Trevena said the New Democrat government is committed to enhancing opportunities for British Columbians to succeed in their creative careers, to supporting cultural revitalization and healing within Indigenous communities, and to increasing equity and access so that all people in British Columbia can participate in the arts and celebrate culture.

We are announcing $5 million to help support the wonderful work that the Pacific Salmon Foundation is doing to help support vulnerable wild salmon stocks. It’s wonderful to know that so many people are working hard to support this iconic species. B.C.’s coastline is known for its many beautiful and iconic species and keeping these species intact is such an important endeavor.

A Message From The Gold River Filmakers Associaton

June 15, 2018

Update on the Candidate's Debate.

The Gold River Filmmakers Corporation proposes to produce, and freely distribute, a video of the Mayoral and Councillor Debate. Hopefully this will be a way to get each candidate's message out to every Gold River resident.

The Debate format is being worked on but I am pleased to say that Hana Kim has agreed to be the Moderator. She is a GRSS student who has a great deal of self confidence and poise. A perfect Moderator!

I'm excited at the prospect of getting other GR students involved in this endeavour as they are our future and they deserve to be involved.

I envision this debate will be a small affair because the filming of, and distribution of the video is the main focus. I'm leaning towards this not being an open public forum but a small 'by invitation only' gallery. 
A committee to fine tune the details is being assembled.
