FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The NEBC Resource Municipalities Coalition has added another member.

It was announced today Tumbler Ridge has been added to the Coalition. Tumbler Ridge Council voted unanimously on November 7th to join the Coalition. They are the 4th member.

District of Tumbler Ridge Mayor Don McPherson says he is excited about the new role for the City.

“Our Council is delighted to join the Coalition. The Coalition is very active representing the people of Northeast BC to governments and industry. The Coalition has led the advocacy on issues such as responsible resource development, access to new markets, ensuring that out-of-province contractors follow the same rules BC contractors do, and improving transportation infrastructure across the region to name a few. Our Council appreciates the work the Coalition has been doing on behalf of the Northeast and we felt it was time to show our support by becoming a member.”

The founding municipalities include the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality, City of Fort St John and the District of Taylor.

Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman says this shows that the work the Coalition is doing, is being noticed.

“The Tumbler Ridge Council has recognized the work of the Coalition. This shows not only confidence in the work of the Coalition but a belief that Tumbler Ridge will benefit by sitting at the table with our other municipal members and our business and industry members.”

Tumbler Ridge Mayor Don McPherson will be participating in one of the panel sessions at the upcoming Coalition Fall Forum which is being held from November 29, 2016 to December 1, 2016.
