Once again, the North Central Local Government Association will be holding a luncheon during UBCM. The biggest of its kind, the luncheon draws almost 300 people every year, and features multiple Ministers and their staff. This year, our keynote speaker is Minister Bill Bennet, Energy & Mines. Joining him on stage will also be the new Minister for Education, Mike Bernier.
Other MLAs and Ministers who will be in attendance include Shirley Bond, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour; John Rustad, Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation; Coralee Oakes, Minister of Small Business, Red-Tape Reduction and Minister Responsible for the Liquor Distribution Branch; and MLAs Pat Pimm (Peace River North); Jennifer Rice (North Coast); Doug Donaldson (Stikine); Robin Austin (Skeena); and Donna Barnett (Cariboo-Chilcotin).
The NCLGA would like to extend a big ‘Thank You’ our luncheon sponsor, Pacific Natural Gas. For several years in a row PNG has graciously supported our luncheon and made special opportunities like this possible.
