As you know, Gibsons Alliance of Business and Community is a registered society with a mandate to work together with citizens and groups to educate, inform, and support them in helping our elected representatives make the best decisions possible on issues of public interest in Gibsons.
GABC has been a member of the Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce for several years. Since 2013, we have encouraged our business and non-profit members to become members of the Chamber of Commerce and to support and attend Chamber workshops, seminars, business after-hours events, etc.
However, the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce has decided to take "positions" on issues in our community, including the contentious George hotel project. The GDCC are now promoting this non-compliant re-zoning and Official Community Plan amendment.
This decision concerns us for a few reasons.
