FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fraser Basin Council will host a public talk this Monday in Fort St. John that looks at climate change and impact on significant infrastructure in Northeast B.C.

The event will be held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Northern Grand Hotel and will feature Trevor Murdock climate scientist at the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium.


The discussion will look at recent flooding and wildfires in the B.C. Peace and if these types of events can be expected to happen more in the future.

Murdock is also expected to talk about how local governments are preparing for extreme weather events through the recently launched Northeast Climate Risk Network.  Over the next two years, local governments will be developing regional climate projections and conducting vulnerability assessments to better integrate adaptation to community decision-making and planning.
