Behind the Scenes

Back in December, we released our latest investigative story and Part 3 of our series Code Grey. Because of the holidays, there is a good chance that some people missed it so we wanted to share it again just in case.

In this article, Spencer delves into the toxic drug crisis that is affecting British Columbia and how it impacts northern communities disproportionately, specifically Indigenous people and tradesfolk. He also explores what the provincial government is doing to bring an end to the deaths caused by the unregulated drug supply. To read now, click the button below:

Top Stories of the Week

It's always interesting to see what the readers of Energeticcity.ca 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 January 1 to 7, 2023

  1. Welcome, Baby Marilyn: and congrats to the parents for the first baby of the year in Fort St John!
  2. Sikh Spirit: The Guru Nanak Sikh Temple in Fort St. John recently opened its langar to locals to mourn the sacrifices of Sikh martyrs. 
  3. Wendy's Car Crash: thankfully no one was hurt and also thankfully the business' drive-thru is still open so Greg can still get a baconator.
