Erica is a reporter for Moose FM and in Fort St. John, B.C. She grew up in Victoria, B.C. and received her Bachelor's Degree in Journalism from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.

However, Hiebert does say it’s been an honour to serve the region for eight years. 

“I have met many people along the way and been able to work on some really important issues with them. I am truly proud of our accomplishments together as a Board and cannot stress enough how much I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with such a dedicated and engaged group of staff, directors, and constituents of Area ’D‘. Without question, I will always remember the people when I reflect on my time spent at the Peace River Regional District.”

The PRRD lists some of his accomplishments as bringing natural gas to households in Tomslake, installing sewer into the Imperial and Harper subdivisions, funding the Rolla columbarium, acquiring of firefighting equipment in Tomslake, Pouce Coupe, Dawson Creek and Arras and working with the community halls and recreation commissions to ensure that community activities in the rural area continued.

“Wayne’s unwavering commitment to act in the best interest of our region was evident,” says Chair Karen Goodings. “I know this was not an easy decision for Wayne and I respect his need to move on and while I will miss his always thoughtful input at the meetings I wish him the best.” 

A byelection to replace Hiebert will be held, and his alternate, Leonard Hiebert (no relation) from Tomslake, will serve in his place in the meantime.
