Takeover of harbor airport being explored
from Victoria Times Colonist
The Greater Victoria Harbor Authority will meet with Ottawa to discuss taking over control of the Victoria Harbor airport. Authority Chief Executive Curtis Grad was careful to stress the talks with Transport Canada, which manages the air and marine traffic in the harbor through the harbor master, were exploratory and should be considered "very preliminary." Grad added the talks were about clarifying issues around divestiture of the asset. "It's a matter of sitting down and talking through the issues, finding out what they have in mind and going through our concerns," Grad said.
