Petition against weddings was selfish
June 16, 2022
Protests against cruise ships, heli-skiers, the mine, and now... weddings?
We have been so hopeful of the prospect of Haines becoming a wedding destination. One wedding or conference is a two-week boon to our business. All of the Mud Bay venues are first class and run by good people. What happened to being a good host?
The petition to prohibit commercial events was embarrassingly selfish and arbitrary. The subsequent vote feels like intimidation by a lynch mob. Where is Matt Dillon when we need him?
