Wildfire concerns heard loud and clear at UBCM - BCGEU

The City and Cariboo Regional District's wildfire concerns did not fall on deaf ears at last week's Union of B.C. Municipalities Convention, local leaders said.

"In our meetings with ministers they seemed very engaging and sympathetic to the issues we experienced this summer," Cariboo Regional District chair Al Richmond said. "We are probably going to look for some time in November if we can get everything organized for them to come and meet with us in Williams Lake."
