Statement from Brad Sperling, Board Chair, on National Indigenous Peoples Day

Today we pay special recognition to the vital contributions that Indigenous peoples make to the Peace region. We invite all people of this region to learn about the rich cultures, traditions and languages of the Indigenous peoples of this area, whose traditional lands we live on.

It’s also important to acknowledge that we continue to have tragic reminders of the systemic racism and terrible injustices which Indigenous people have suffered over the years in this country. Today is an opportunity to recognize that we have a long way to go on the journey to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. We need to work together to take all concrete actions that we can to move along that path.

The Peace River Regional District is committed to working with Indigenous peoples of this area in a spirit of respect, cooperation and partnership, and to do all we can to make this region a better place for them and for all people, today and every day.

Peace River Regional District virtual town hall meeting disrupted with racist language

A June 15 virtual town hall meeting hosted by Peace River Regional District (PRRD) was briefly disrupted by a participant who posted racist and profane language on the screen during a staff presentation. PRRD staff immediately stopped the meeting, reset the presentation and readmitted some participants. The meeting continued without incident.

Racist language and behavior is not tolerated by the PRRD in any setting, says Board Chair Brad Sperling. “We reject racist or hateful language or behavior of any sort, and our Board created a specific policy to that effect. We apologize to any of the meeting participants that saw this offensive language or have been affected by this unfortunate incident.”

The Peace River Regional District (PRRD) is consulting with residents in parts of Electoral Areas B and C on the proposed expansion of the Charlie Lake Fire Protection Area to include some 175 properties in Sawyer’s Subdivision, Red Creek South, Bear Flats and South Montney. The new service would be provided by the Charlie Lake Fire Department.

Residents are invited to one of two virtual town halls on June 15 to get information and ask questions about the proposed expansion. The meeting for Electoral Area C residents takes place at 5pm, and for Electoral Area B residents at 7pm.

“The Peace region has seen some serious wildfires in the area in recent years, especially in 2016, and some residents have asked the PRRD to consider expanding Charlie Lake’s fire service to include these new areas,” says PRRD Board Chair Brad Sperling. “These engagement meetings and our online engagement process are intended to help us understand the level of support for the proposed service and what questions people have.
