Prince George, B.C. – More help is on the way for those affected by this month’s wildfires in British Columbia.

The B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union has joined with its national affiliate, the National Union of Public Employees to pledge a $100,000 donation to the Red Cross to help with wildfire relief efforts.

“We are pleased to join to contribute to the relief effort for B.C. residents affected by wildfires,” says BCGEU president Stephanie Smith. “BCGEU members and their families live in the affected communities and we share a responsibility to provide humanitarian services for all British Columbians impacted by tis national disaster.”

The wildfires have led to the evacuation of 43,000 to 44,000 people in B.C.



Thank you! An outstanding contribution of support!

Great to see these folks and Lheidli T’enneh, the Companies and Corporations stepping forward, then there’s all the silent donors who contribute. The goodwill is awesome to see. What an incredible world we live in.

As usual, no comments allowed on the LTH story hmmm

    0250 is afraid people might have opinions that don’t follow their agenda.

    yeahhh can’t even complement them… but yet they allow comments on that Native guy who was peppered and died

Absolutely fabulous . This is how I see the very near future . Imagine a province where unions and corporations would have to contribute to society as a whole to win social licence instead of filling political parties coffers . This could happen under the Orange/Green government .

Not even close to the money they contributed to the indigenous games in Ontario this week!

We also held a bbq for the evacuees that are residing at AiMHi on Sunday. The desire to help the evacuees is overwhelming.
