OUR VIEW: Enjoy the new arrival

People were out in force on Saturday and Sunday trying out the new Elk Falls Suspension Bridge

Well, what a glorious weekend to welcome the newest addition to Campbell River’s many attractions.

People were out in force on Saturday and Sunday trying out the new Elk Falls Suspension Bridge and at first glance it appears to be a huge success.

Congratulations to the Rotarians who spearheaded this project and thanks also to the corporate and community funding organizations that helped make it happen.

The bridge represents a can-do attitude that welcomes ideas, innovation and courage – and we’re not just talking about those with the nerve to cross the dizzying expanse the bridge spans. It will stand us in good stead if we keep this attitude in mind as we go forward into the future.

This facility will bring a great deal of enjoyment to not only visitors but residents as well. Campbell River is a community of walkers and the suspension bridge gives us a chance to walk on air and view one of our most beautiful locations – from above.

Once again, congratulations and thank-you to those who made it happen. And enjoy, Campbell River.
