FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Peace River North M.L.A., Dan Davies is asking why there isn’t representation from Northern B.C. on the Premier’s task force on Economic Recovery.

During the weekly talk show on Moose FM, Davies said there is no representation from Northern B.C. on a committee to restart the economy. “Where is rural B.C., where is northern B.C. There’s no oil and gas sector, forestry, nobody from the agriculture sector, nobody from mining and construction groups.”

M.L.A. Davies believes these are groups that should be apart of the Premier’s task force to help build the proper plan.

On April 2, 2020, the Premier announced the following groups would be invited to join the task force:

A spokesperson from the Premier’s Office said task force does include representation from across the Province. “Despite partisan sniping from B.C. Liberals, the task force does include representation from across the province.”

The spokesperson went on to say the task force includes representation from the organizations that represent businesses across B.C., and more specifically, Chief Sharleen Gale from Fort Nelson.

M.L.A. Davies says the Province has done a great job handling the health crisis, but now they need to have a clear plan to restart the economy.
