Towns Want Job Erosion To Stop
Wendy Coomber – Ashcroft Cache Creek Journal – November 2011
Ashcroft Terminal has won over another politician.
"Ashcroft Terminal has all the makings of a large scale employer for the local community," said John Les after touring the grounds last week. "It’s been a real eye opener for me."
John Les, Chilliwack MLA and Parlimentary Secretary to the Premier, was in Ashcroft on Nov.8 as part of a "boots on the ground" road trip with Pamela Martin, Premier Christy Clark’s Director of Outreach, and staff. They had been in Lillooet earlier in the day and were heading for Logan Lake after leaving Ashcroft.
"We’re finding out what the issues are that people want the Premier to know about," Martin told a gathering of local leaders af the AT tour.
"It’s all about job creation and investment," added Les.
