WHEREAS a number of Northern Mayors, Regional District Chairs and transportation representatives met to discuss regional transportation issues earlier this year in Prince George in an effort to better understand transportation issues, challenges, and opportunities facing northern communities;

AND WHEREAS the findings of these discussions were placed in front of the NCLGA membership early in the 2011 convention with additional feedback received from delegates with a positive response to seeing the NCLGA consider taking a leadership role on the broad transportation issues and priorities.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the recommendations contained within the discussion paper that call on the NCLGA to meet with Northern Mayors and Chairs to discuss ways a more coordinated and strengthened position on transportation can be developed, be supported in principle and that the report be referred to the NCLGA Executive for further review.
