Vancouver Island North MP John Duncan was busy making numerous community appearances Thursday, including a morning stop in Courtenay, where he announced $100,000 worth of funding to the Courtenay and District Fish & Game Association to go towards the upgrade of the association’s clubhouse. The funds come from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. Ship’s Point Improvement District also received $200,000 from the fund, to put towards the upgrading of water infrastructure in Fanny Bay.

The Town of Port McNeill, the Cape Mudge Indian Band and the Sayward Community Recreation Association also received funds for projects within those communities.
