Jack Purdy: Bamfield's absentee landlord
An interview with Bamfield's embattled landowner
Jack Purdy speaks.
He is the Alberta investor who bought up many properties in the west coast village of Bamfield, only to let them fall into decay.
Much has been said about him, most of it critical. But we rarely hear from the man himself.
That is, until last Friday when Gregor Craigie had an extended chat with him.
In this full-length interview Jack Purdy has to say about what properties he owns, why he bought them, what he wanted to do with them, why his plans fell through, and what his plans are for the future.
