    Agriculture in the Peace River Regional District

    The PRRD is taking the situation facing the Agriculture Industry extremely seriously and is taking action to advocate for agriculture.

    At the November 14th Board Meeting, the Peace River Regional District Board resolved to take action in support the local agriculture industry by sending a letter to provincial and federal representatives, including Premier John Horgan, Minister of Agriculture, Lana Popham, MLA Dan Davies, MLA Mike Bernier, and MP Bob Zimmer.  The Peace River Regional District would like to clarify that while the PRRD Board is in full support of the Agriculture industry and local farmers, there has not been a declaration of an Agricultural Emergency at this time. Video of the full discussion regarding the report can be found on the PRRD’s website at https://prrd.bc.ca/agendasminutes/peace-river-regional-district-prrd/.

    PRRD Requests Data Gathered by Ministry Regarding Old Fort Area

    The Peace River Regional District Board reviewed the letter sent by Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General on July 26, 2019 in response to a previous letter sent by MLA Dan Davies, on June 25, 2019, expressing his concerns regarding the Old Fort Landslide area.

    The Minister’s letter suggests the area is unlikely to experience “a dramatic slippage of the remaining hillside that might further impact homes to occur. The data suggests that if movement was to recommence, it would be a slow-moving slide as had been experienced in the previous slide that initiated on September 30, 2018.”  The Regional Board is requesting from the Ministry the data that substantiates this statement.

    Once the data is received, the Peace River Regional District plans to have the data verified by applicable experts to consider whether evacuation alerts and orders may be removed from the Old Fort area.
