Prince George, B.C. – Husky Energy has recognized the City of Prince George’s 100th anniversary by providing a new interpretive sign program which will improve the city’s parks and trails system.

“We’re here to say congratulations to the City of Prince George and everyone who lives and works here on the eve of the centennial celebration,” says Ed Debevc, Husky’s refinery manager in Prince George. “These trail signs are a gift for everyone in the city to enjoy and take advantage of.”

The sign program will connect 35 kilometers of existing trails and walkways that encircle Prince George’s bowl area and will be written in English and Dakelh, the Ldeidli T’enneh language.

“I want to thank you Ed and Husky Energy for this donation,” says mayor Lyn Hall. “It is absolutely fantastic and really reflects our cooperation and our partnership with Husky Energy.”

He adds he’s pleased the signs provide the chance to educate people.

“This is our 100th anniversary and that’s what we’re about this year, showing the community what’s transpired and what’s taken place over the last 100 years. So what better way than to reflect that than to have the interpretive signs throughout our trail system?”

Four large interpretive kiosks will be placed at Moore’s Meadow, Cottonwood Island Park, Fort George Park, and at the University trail loops.

There will also be 30 smaller interpretive signs throughout the system as well as distance markers.


Shirley Bonds not in the picture? That’s a first…

Wherever you are, you’re there.

Hall seems to be giving Bond a run for her money on photo ops…

I guess people need to know where they are especially if they don’t know where it is they are going…it is all good…..

Its about time a sponsor in the community stepped forward, because this was something really lacking in our parks. Hopefully a little bit of pruning and landscaping is in order too….

Where was the photo taken? And is that the first of the signs?
