The two politicians representing the region on the Federal and Provincial stage will be in Prince Rupert on Thursday, as MP Nathan Cullen and MLA Jennifer Rice host a community BBQ at Mariners Park.
The public event takes place from Noon until 2 at Mariner's, co-hosted by the Prince Rupert Hospice Society.
With few other public opportunities of late offered up to share thoughts on local issues with either of the two elected officials, Thursday's gathering provides a chance to have a conversation or two on items of interest to the region.
The gathering also offers up the added bonus of having a burger, hot dog or veggie dog with the two politicians and helping out the Hospice Society.
Local RCMP members will be helping Mr. Cullen and Ms. Rice serve up the food, which has been donated by local businesses in the city.
An item posted to Mr. Cullen's facebook page provides a bit of background to the Thursday event.
