Top Stories of the Week

It's always interesting to see what the readers of are most interested in the region. Sometimes it's a big decision that will impact property taxes, and sometimes it's a new restaurant coming to town. Here are the top stories for the week of November 13 to 19, 2022

  1. Tragic Loss of Local Mom: leaving behind five children, Nissa Specken passed away last Monday, possibly due to an infection. There is a GiveSendGo fundraiser to help.
  2. Did You Feel the Earthquakes?: according to Earthquake Canada, probably not but the fact there were two nearby so close to each other is interesting.
  3. Changes at the Chamber: according to a press release, the previous executive director of the Fort St John Chamber of Commerce has been "transitioned out" which means they are looking for a new one.
