Today at 11am, the Regional Board and staff at the Peace River Regional District will observe a moment of silence to acknowledge the tragic loss of 14 young women at Polytechnique Montréal on December 6, 1989, in an act of violent misogyny. This event shook our Country and its people, and led Parliament to designate December 6 as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
Meetings of the Committee of the Whole, Peace River Regional Hospital District and Peace River Regional District Boards will be held beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, December 9, 2022 at the PRRD Office Boardroom located at 1981 Alaska Avenue in Dawson Creek, BC. Agendas may be viewed on the PRRD’s web page at www.prrd.bc.ca/agendas-minutes/
The Regional District understands that many people may not wish to attend in person, and has put in place additional processes to allow the public to continue to ‘be in the know’ about what’s happening at the Board meetings. Meetings are livestreamed via Facebook, and posted online after the meeting in case you miss it.
The PRRD will accept gallery questions and comments from the public, via email in advance, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your comments and your name will be read out loud during the Gallery Questions and Comments portion of the meeting. Gallery comments are limited to items on the agenda, and each person has up to two minutes to share their views or pose questions for the Board’s consideration.
Please continue to watch the Board meetings livestreamed over Facebook:
The Peace River Regional District petition to the BC Supreme Court regarding the validity of the Electoral Area C Election was heard on November 22, 2022. The Court declared the election invalid due to issuance of ballots to electors from outside of Electoral Area C who were ineligible to vote, and has directed that the Area C Director position is vacant.
The PRRD will hold a by-election, as soon as possible, to fill the Area C Director position.
The Peace River Regional District (PRRD) is committed to upholding public trust in the democratic process and ensuring that elections are conducted in accordance with legislated procedures. We apologize to the candidates and voters who participated in the Electoral Area C election.
