Local Government Week Underway
Prince George, B.C.- This is Local Government Awareness Week in B.C. and the Mayor of Prince George is hoping you will take some time to find out more about how local government works.
“Local government has the most direct, everyday impact on the lives of Canadians and it’s also the most accessible” says Mayor Lyn Hall.
The aim of the week is to generate awareness about the roles and responsibilities of local government, and encourage the public to participate in local government processes, including voting in local elections.
“An informed electorate is the keystone of a healthy democracy,” says Mayor Lyn Hall. “On behalf of Council, I encourage citizens of Prince George to learn more about how local government works. Visit our website or contact the City or a member of Council with your questions.”
