The president of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce is the guest speaker at this month’s Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce luncheon.
John Winter, president and CEO of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce will be at the Sept. 9 meeting at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino.
Winter’s topic is, “The Anti-Everything Movement, What is it Capable of? Addressing the significant and serious obstacles cropping up to hamper B.C.’s economic growth for the next decade and beyond.”
Winters says, “For a province awash in talent and natural assets, it’s disturbing to see how much British Columbian ingenuity is being channeled into our province’s alarming – and growing – culture of no.
“In virtually every corner of the province, we’re seeing the same thing: Smart, highly environmentally responsible projects that can employ our children and keep our towns alive are being battered, paralyzed and stomped out.”
The luncheon is open to members and non-members.
Anyone interested in attending is asked to RSVP by noon Monday, Sept. 8 by calling 604-574-9802. Cost is $20 for Cloverdale Chamber members and $30 for non-members.
The networking and luncheon event gets underway at 11:30 a.m.
