I do not think anyone should be surprised with her signing the letter. The doctor was previously associated with the Prince Rupert Environmental Society which joined with UFAWU (the Fishermen’s Union) and the T. Buck Suzuki Environmental Foundation who hired her to do some work.
Obviously City Council would have known her background in the in-depth vetting they would have done prior to offering employment (after all, the Resident Scientist is a pretty important role!). Suffice to say, by hiring her, it is reasonable to conclude that the Council of City of Prince Rupert is deeply concerned about any development at Lelu Island.
I am however a bit concerned to find out that the announcement of her appointment was made on a Facebook page. I know I am a bit of traditionalist but certainly such a appointment should have been announced at a Council Meeting.
