Behind the Scenes
Back in January, we wrote a story that nominations for the Small Business BC Awards were open. We are excited to announce that we have been nominated! As the only locally owned and operated news organization in Northern British Columbia, we are proud to be up for the Business Impact Award and the Premier’s People’s Choice Award.
As the voice of the Peace, our goal is to share the unique values of the region with the rest of B.C. and make sure those in power hear us. We do this by partnering with local businesses in order to write daily stories, create podcasts that explore specific topics, and much more. Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last 15 years and we appreciate your votes to potentially win these awards! Click the button below to find out how you can help:
