Port proud to support awards

As the city’s business community gathers to honour exceptional companies, we are proud to support the Business Excellence Awards

Editor:

It was nearly a decade ago that the women and men who operate Fairview Container Terminal were named “Business of the Year” by the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce during its annual Business Excellence Awards.

Much has changed in our community since 2007. New developments at the Port of Prince Rupert have come online in the intervening years, strengthening its status as one of North America’s preeminent gateways for trade with Asia. But the businesses that are involved directly and indirectly with the gateway industry represent only a handful of the many that thrive in this community, and a diverse port city like ours is richer for their hard work and commerce.

As the city’s business community gathers this weekend to honour exceptional companies, we are proud to support the Business Excellence Awards. The leadership and staff at the Port of Prince Rupert commend all the nominees for enhancing the vitality of life on B.C.’s north coast, and applaud the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce for celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit of our hometown. We encourage all in the community to echo our sentiments.
