Fort St. John City Councilors kicked-off an annual toonie drive for kids at Monday’s City Council meeting.
After declaring March as KidSport Month, City Councilors dug into their pockets and donated a toonie each for the cause.
Chair of the North Peace KidSport, Gail Weber, says the organization allows children of all abilities to compete in sports.

Banners are being sold around Fort St. John at Quizno’s, Ernie’s Source for Sports, The Hair Bin, North Peace Leisure Pool, Today’s Techniques and Fort Bowling Lanes.
Each banner is signed by the donor, and then hung on the walls of the business selling the banner.
They are two dollars each, and all money will go towards sport programs for local children.
