Lantz is in Vancouver with Fort St. John City Manager Dianne Hunter, who met with speed skating officials and corporate representatives on Wednesday.

The Mayor says it’s a perfect time to recruit sponsors and generate interest in the $40 million facility.

He says Premier Gordon Campbell and Minister of State for Sport Ida Chong were in attendance.

Lantz added that the delegates got to watch CTV’s live feed of residents’ support for speed skater Denny Morrison at the Enerplex.

Mayor Lantz says the Enerplex has been getting plenty of positive feedback from representatives in the speed skating community.

Meanwhile, Lantz says a big screen TV showcased Fort St. John speed skater, Denny Morrison competing in the 1000m race. Although Morrison finished 13th in the competition, Lantz says there’s still going to be plenty of support in his upcoming races.
