FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — A truck convoy will end with a rally at the Charlie Lake boat launch tomorrow, to hear from many local figures to promote LNG in B.C.
The truck convoy will begin setting up at the staging area at 10:45 a.m., until 11:14 a.m., off of Alaska Road.
Non-work trucks, pick-up trucks and cars will be staged following that time, at 11:15 a.m. — behind the big trucks. Organizers ask that no trailers be driven in the convoy, as parking and maneuvering is going to be difficult enough with the anticipated volume of units coming.
The convoy will start rolling at 11:30 a.m. Participants who don’t want to park at the rally can exit right via 269 Road or 271 Road.
Guests expected to speak at the rally include City of Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman, Prince George – Peace River – Northern Rockies MP Bob Zimmer, Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm, Peace River Regional District Director Brad Sperling, and B.C. Senator Richard Neufeld.
All ages are welcome to attend the rally at the Charlie Lake Boat Launch. Traffic Control will guide you off the highways and parking attendants with assist you in parking at the boat launch.
Organizers ask that participants be patient at the parking site, as they will be accommodating a lot of units in a very short amount of time.
Vehicles that weigh one tonne or smaller will be directed to the parking lot of the Charlie Lake Community Hall, and shuttles will be available to and from the boat launch.
