Key to the Cariboo presented to Pioneer Log Homes

Chair Al Richmond and the CRD Board presented a “Key” to the Cariboo Chilcotin to Andre Chevigny of Pioneer Log Homes of BC honouring the significant impact their international business and reality TV show Timber Kings has had in creating exposure and notoriety for our region.  In addition, the Chair thanked Pioneer Log Homes for their support in partnering with the Cariboo Regional District during both the 2010 Olympics and the 2015 Canada Winter Games.

The Key to the Cariboo Chilcotin is an award to acknowledge the contribution of an individual, group or organization to furthering the ideals of the CRD at a provincial, national or international level as a representative or resident of the Cariboo Chilcotin.

Likely receives Community Works Funding for potable water project

The CRD approved the Likely Community Association’s request for an additional $10,000 in Community Works Funding from the 2015 Community Halls Improvements envelope.

The funds will be used to complete the installation of the potable water project at the Likely Community Hall previously approved by the Board in January.

Support for Orange Shirt Day

The Cariboo Regional District authorized up to $2,250 of Electoral Area Administration funds to support the 2015 Orange Shirt Day events taking place on September 30 in the North, Central and South Cariboo. The purpose of the program is to continue the reconciliation process and raise awareness about the residential school experience.

911 service delivery in B.C.

The Ministry of Justice is seeking input from key stakeholders in order to inform the future of emergency communications across the province.

The policing and security branch of the Ministry of Justice forwarded a letter and Discussion Paper entitled “Emergency Communications Service Delivery in B.C. — Strategic Vision” for review and input from the CRD and other key stakeholders in order to inform the future of emergency communications service delivery across the province.

This discussion paper outlines the background, challenges, and strategic vision for emergency communications service delivery involving 911 PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point).

The CRD board of directors reviewed the paper and Chair Al Richmond will be attending a consultation forum on Monday, June 1, 2015 in Vancouver to further discuss this issue.
