|Behold your future Prince Rupert, 65 million dollars in funding will be|
making for quite a bit infrastructure work ahead across the city
Mayor Herb Pond has proclaimed it a time to celebrate, the City's administration noting that the town may soon become an active construction site ... just a few of the reactions to today's announcement by Premier David Eby towards funding of 65 million dollars for the city's water infrastructure requirements.
We noted of the early morning announcement from the Museum of Northern BC shortly after the Premier shared the word, providing a look at the Provincial government's take on the day's news.
And since that announcement, the view from civic officials has been unbridled enthusiasm, as would be expected by a windfall of 65 million dollars to be directed to one of the community's most pressing issues.
Mayor Pond made some rare use of his Social Media stream to provide his look at the news, Mr. Pond providing equal shares of credit to former Mayors and Council members, Ms. Rice as MLA and the Premier and Minister Kang.
