Details on this breaking story, including the reason for the sudden drop-out and how it will affect the coalition, can not be confirm at this time, however this story will be updated once more information becomes available.
The regions included in the coalition are Fort St. John, Fort Nelson, Pouce Coupe, Taylor, Tumbler Ridge, Chetwynd, and until recently Dawson Creek.
Hudson’s Hope is the one district that did not sign on to the coalition; and while they’ve been extended an open invitation to join at any time, Mayor Gwen Johansson has yet to signify any interest.
Senator Richard Neufeld, who once served as the MLA for Peace River North, as well as the Mayor of Fort Nelson, is also a part of the coalition, serving as an honorary member.
The coalition says their mandate is to protect and enhance resource municipalities, maximize B.C. workers, good and services, cumulative resource infrastructure planning, protect the environment, collaborate and partner with First Nations, and protect and extend existing funding agreements.
