The Canadian Government has appointed local realtor and businessman Darren DeLuca to the board of directors of the Port Alberni Port Authority.
Lawrence Cannon, the Canadian Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, made the announcement Wednesday, citing DeLuca's business experience as a major factor in the appointment. DeLuca will join the five-member port authority board for a three-year term.
