Municipal leaders from across British Columbia will be listening attentively this morning, as NDP Premier John Horgan outlines the approach his government plans to take when it comes to municipal issues and relations with communities across the province.
Through the week municipal leaders have been meeting with provincial government ministers or representatives from government ministries, outlining key issues of concern for their communities, as well as sharing common themes between the two levels of government.
In a social media update Thursday from Councillor Blair Mirau, it was noted that the Prince Rupert delegation had spent some time with Environment and Climate Change Strategy Minister George Heyman and Agriculture Minister Lana Popham
The Councillor did not expand much on the nature of those talks however in his post, other than to advise that progress on key issues for Prince Rupert had seemingly been made.
Friday's address from Mr. Horgan, provides the punctuation mark on the five day conference, with the Premier's address setting the path ahead when it comes to relations between the Provincial and Municipal representatives in British Columbia.
The address to the UBCM will be streamed live through the Provincial Government's Facebook page.
Mr. Horgan's address to the delegates starts at 10 AM
