ICBA Continues Push to Get Projects to Yes
Prince George, B.C. – The Chair of the Board, the President and Senior Vice President on hand, the ICBA held a meet and greet in Prince George last evening.
The Independent Contractors and Businesses Association opened an office in Prince George last November, and since that time, has been busy connecting with people throughout the north to join the call to have projects approved so workers can get to work.
Since arriving in Prince George, the ICBA has supported two major rallies, one in Terrace, another in Fort St. John, and pumped dollars into trades training at the College of New Caledonia. It’s part of their strategy to raise the voices of those who don’t agree with the people Board Chair Rick Boates describes as “those who say no to everything”. Boates says if anyone can develop resources responsibly, it is British Columbia.
Prince George- Mackenzie MLA Mike Morris was on hand and reminded the group BC is the economic powerhouse in Canada right now, and proposed projects can keep that momentum going. With Prince George the centre for highways, and having good rail access, he said resource development could see Prince George become a major industrial centre.
Prince George Mayor Lyn Hall echoed those comments, noting there is significant development happening in the City at the moment with the Riverbend Seniors complex and the major Inland Kenworth development underway. He hinted there is more good news on the horizon.
