Welcome to Prince George!! ☺

Welcome to Prince George !! ,,,,it’s great having the teams of Canada in my home town….How exciting,,I’m exited.
Hope they will have no problems encountering some of the other residents of Prince George. If that pertains to you (other residents)leave the teams and visitors alone.

Hope you enjoy your stay and congatulations to you all…….

Welcome… athletes and visitors… ENJOY our city and best of luck to all

Welcome to all athletes, their families, trainers and coaches. Let’s hope the weather cooperates and all athletes shine.

Good luck to everyone.

Current Prince George Air Quality Health Index is 3 out of 10. The highest in the province, but still not all that bad. Welcome to Prince George, just try not to breath too deeply :)

What a bunch of winners… so whats with the ‘welcome to McBurger, hope you don’t get food poisoning’ comments? No wonder PG has an image problem.

I am sure they will all have a good time, enjoy some great facilities for the games, breath fresh winter air, and meet locals who are all friendly and helpful. To insinuate through innuendo anything else comes across as sour losers with defeatist mentalities.

This is going to be a lot of fun. I wish them all well,glad to know they’re here, I really hope they enjoy our town. Take home some medals but please leave some for us!

How exciting for Prince George
