Monday, March 27, 2017 @ 6:14 PM

Prince George, B.C.-  The regular meeting of Prince George City Council  kicked off with a positive start this evening,  with  congratulations being  offered to local  organizations and some individuals for  specific achievements.

It has been an  incredible  weekend for hockey in Prince George,  with the  Cariboo Cougars  being crowned champions of the BC Major Midget League.   The Cariboo Cougars  now focus on their next big event, which is the Telus Cup  set for next month.

The  Prince George Cougars  were also  congratulated  for being crowned the WHL’s  BC Division  Champs.  That  achievement will see the CN Centre  display its first banner in the 23 years the team has been in Prince George.  The Cougars  split the opening two games of their first  round of playoffs and return home on April 1st for game 5 of that series.

Mayor Hall also offered congratulations to the following  individuals  who work  for the City, for their  recent achievements “When we get an opportunity to recognize them for  awards,  whether provincial or national, it’s very special” said Mayor Hall

  • Hillary Morgan, City Planner, recipient of a 2017 Heritage BC Award in the area of Heritage Planning and Management related to her work alongside the Prince George Heritage Commission in the development of the City of Prince George Heritage Register.
  • Doug Hofstede, City Community Coordinator/Team Leader, recipient of “Le Cornouiller d’or” otherwise known as the “Golden Dogwood”, awarded each year by the Francophone community of British Columbia to a public servant in recognition of distinguished service in the area of Francophone affairs
  • Maureen Connelly, City Deputy Corporate Officer, awarded a Certificate in Local Government Statutory Administration by the British Columbia Board of Examiners



You can treat your managers and employees like chite, treating them as the enemy when it comes to negotiating contracts (like scary Sherri did), or you can treat them with decency, and respect, like the current Mayor and Council obviously does.

We had “Francophone affairs?” Do tell.
