Thanks from Baynes Lake seniors

Thank you for your coverage of our grand opening of the Spirit Pond Haven seniors’ housing project at Baynes Lake. Everyone is always interested to know where the money came from (federal and provincial governments) but this achievement would never have seen the light of day if Bill Bennett had not persuaded his government to give the crown land to the RDEK so the RDEK could donate the land to the project. And neither would the project have happened if Mr. Bennett had not persuaded BC Housing that they should invest in a small seniors’ housing project in our very rural area far from town. I recall going into Bill Bennett's office with Heath Slee a few years ago to ask for help. I am convinced our project would not have happened, if it were not for Mr. Bennett's hard work.


Doug Lyon,
