Delta throwback: Doug Massey

He was learning about proposed improvements for Ladner Harbour from Art Swenson (behind). The photo was taken from the deck of the Cape Blanco.

The lifelong Delta resident and community activist, whose father George Massey was the driving force behind the Deas Island Tunnel getting built, has a self-published book on the history of his family in Delta, called the Journey & Life of George Massey and Family.

Now in his 80s, Doug continues to speak out today on such issues as the proposed Terminal 2 expansion at Roberts Bank. He's also involved with the the Delta Fishing Heritage Society.
