NIC postpones Port Alberni Graduation due to fire at Cameron Bluffs


North Island College has postponed its Port Alberni Graduation due to the wildfire at Cameron Bluffs and road closures. The graduation was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but the college has postponed the event to the fall due to the closure of the highway connecting Port Alberni and West Coast communities to Qualicum and the Island’s east side. “While we want to honour your journey, we are unable to fully celebrate at this time,” read the release. “We hope to celebrate again when community resources are not hampered by the road closures, and community members are able to fully celebrate with us.”
