Last week, Premier Christy Clark was blasted for not including a Vancouver Island stop-off when she rolled out her jobs plan. In particular, there was criticism she didn't visit Nanaimo, which has one of the highest unemployment rates in the province at 12.3 percent. But Ms. Clark will try to make up for that omission next month when she headlines the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance's 2011 summit. That two-day summit, which has a $275 ticket price, is set to get underway at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre in Nanaimo on October 18. The following is a complete copy of the invite to that event.
