June Haida OIF Test Postponed Indefinitely
Hot off the heels of removing Russ George as CEO (see Haida Boot Russ George, 5/25), the Haida Salmon Restoration Corporation (HSRC), controlled by the Village of Old Massett, has cancelled a second OIF field test scheduled for June. "I can't say if it will be done again ever. I won't know until we get the results of the strategic review," said chief councillor Ken Rea, referring to a corporate review being conducted in the aftermath of George's abrupt termination. For his part, George is contesting his removal as a director of HSRC, claiming that his private company Ocean Pastures owns 48% of HSRC shares and is therefore entitled to two of the four board seats. According to George, "I shall remain a director of the HSRC and look forward to moving the business plan of the company forward." George is not, however, disputing his removal as CEO.
