Youth denied help

Port Alberni council decides to not donate $250 to the Canada World Youth program.

Port Alberni city council voted 4-2 against donating $250 to the Canada World Youth program so local youth Benson Wishart can participate in the program.

Coun. Cindy Solda said while she supports Wishart’s endeavour and the program, giving the money would set a bad precedent.
