VIDEO: Canadian Consulate General renames room in China after Barkerville: Mayor Walt Cobb
The Canadian Consulate General of Canada in Guangzhou, China has renamed one of its meeting rooms the Barkerville Space, Mayor Walt Cobb said.
"I heard from one of my directors on the Barkerville Heritage Trust about it today," Cobb told council during its regular council meeting Tuesday. "That's all come from the delegation we had here in the summer and the Barkerville display that we had over there in China."
Barkerville is now recognized in Guangzhou, meaning the Cariboo is becoming more and more well known in the world because of these types of different connections, he added.
