Multi-lingual Street Sign a First for P.G.
Prince George, B.C. – The City of Prince George has its first-ever multi-lingual street name and informational signs. The first of two signs, which has information in the Punjabi language, has been unveiled at 5th and Kelly, and directs visitors to the Guro Gobind Singh Temple.
A second sign, expected to be installed this week, will direct visitors to the Guru Nanak Darbar Temple on Davis Road.
The signs, paid for by the Temples, were approved by City Council earlier this year following a request from the Guru Nanak Darbar Society for directional signage.
Having signage in multiple languages is not new to the City, as signs in Carrier have been incorporated along George Street banners and were featured during the Canada Winter Games, and at the Canada Games Plaza. This is the first time a street sign in Prince George features a language other than English.
