The report also gave high praise to the North Peace Museum.

“What a community gem! So many artifacts, and lovely attention to detail in how they are presented, make this a fascinating visit.”

Councillor Larry Evans with the City thanked the citizens that came to help guide the tour and show off the City.

“We are fortunate to live in a community with such great community ambassadors! Karen Mason-Bennett from NEAT, Candace Peever from the North Peace Justice Society and Edward Stanford from Urban Systems organized and hosted the tour. It simply wouldn’t happen without the commitment and community spirit of these three citizens.”
