There’s lots left to do

THE current Kitimat-Stikine regional district director for Area E (Thornhill) is running again because he’s enjoyed being on the board and has projects to complete.

Ted Ramsey says all of Thornhill needs a sewer system but that there have been problems in seeing the work accomplished.

Part of the problem is that Thornhill isn’t amalgamated with Terrace, but after two referendums on the issue in the last several years, he doesn’t want another referendum.

“We need to make a commitment to move forward,” said Ramsey, adding there’s been no input from the community and it’s important to find out what people want to do about a sewer system.

“It’s in limbo and we have to decide what form is needed to move forward.”

Amalgamating with Terrace isn’t the answer and Thornhill needs to look at something else, he added.

“I work for the people. Tell me what you want,” he said about how people can voice their opinions.

The region has always been boom and bust and the fact that the area doesn’t get any money from stumpage fees is another issue, he said. “That’s always grated me for years,” he said.

The closing of Thornhill Junior is a major concern. “I’ve been approached by numerous people about retaining that facility,” he said.

“I think there’s so many opportunities for that school and Thornhill.”

Ramsey moved to the area in 1970 and has lived in Thornhill since 1971.
