Correction: Wrong owner named
CLAUDIA LEE is not the owner of the Wild Duck Motel and RV Park as stated in a story published in the June 6, 2012 issue of The Terrace Standard.
Lee, in fact, is the owner of the Copper River Motel. Jim and Vera McClenaghan are the owners of the Wild Duck Motel.
The story, “New fish regs affect tourism,” concerned new fishing regulations which limit what tourists can do on local rivers.
While Vera McClenaghan says the Wild Duck Motel has lost some anglers as a clientele because of the new fishing regulations, it is still busy there because of the increase in industrial activity in the area.
“Thank god for the jobs in Terrace,” she said.
McClenaghan took part in a working group hosted by the provincial government leading up the new fishing restrictions.
She said she argued against the changes because of they would hurt tourism here.
McClenaghan also sits on the board of the Kermodei Tourism Society, the group which promotes tourism and activity in Terrace and area.
