Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District: Geall, Eric - Director Candidate

  • Oct. 30, 2014 5:00 a.m.

As we kick off the first election campaign in almost 10 years in Bamfield, I would like to personally thank my constituents for their support over the past three years.  In learning how to best represent you I have acquired many new skills and friendships. I humbly thank you for the privilege to serve as Area A director and ask for your support on Nov. 15.

Moving into another term, it is my goal to provide Bamfield with exceptional clean and safe drinking water. Working with your local water committee and regional district staff we have developed short- and long-term plans to meet and exceed Island Health regulations. Pilot testing will begin this winter with the goal of choosing the proper technology for a newly built permanent treatment facility.

I pledge that more than 50 per cent of the required finances will come from grants. Clean water in Bamfield will not be a burden on the taxpayers.

My second concern is to prioritize local parks, trails, linkages and maintenance. Priority trails in Bamfield include:  Bamfield to Anacla Trail and Cape Beale Trail upgrades and linkages.

Through serving as your representative on regional committees, including Alberni-Clayoquot Health Network, Marine Advisory Committee, and the Solid Waste Plan Implementation Committee, I have provided Bamfield with a strong voice at the regional level.

I have learned many things formally and informally about our neighbours, Huu-ay-aht First Nation. The Bamfield-Anacla bond has stood the test of time as we live, learn, work and play together. As a family-oriented, year-round resident I understand our unique issues.
