FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Peace River North MLA, Dan Davies, is calling on the Provincial Government to fund a number of projects right now as a way to kick-start the economy to move forward from the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Davies, many projects in the North Peace, such as the Taylor Bridge, need funding at the moment to help stimulate and recover the economy from the affects of the pandemic.

Davies also says there are opportunities to widen the Alaska Highway from Dawson Creek to Pink Mountain which would provide employment and help boost the economy.
