Today marked a special day and you can now check out a spectacular view in Campbell River!

The Elk Falls Suspension Bridge is now open. A ceremony earlier today marked the opening.

We spoke with Jessica McDonald, the President and CEO of BC Hydro. She had the chance to cross the bridge this morning.

Campbell River Mayor Andy Adams says this gives the city a slight edge on the town’s sister city of Ishikari, Japan.

Phil Kent, Board Chair for Island Coastal Economic Trust, adds these kinds of projects have a tremendous multiplying effect on economic development…drawing in more and more tourists each and every year.
