Iíve been very vocal in utilizing and establishing resources to create jobs in our country and in our community. I was successful in meeting various levels of government worked hard with citizens of Kitimat to open up mines and government involvement. Iíve never accomplished a major project on my own. Itís always been with the support and hard work of a combined working group,Ē said Murphy.
