Santa Claus Parade just around the corner

Hats off to School District staff and students and local businesses who have collected 2.3 tons of food for this year’s Poverty Challenge.

Hats off to School District staff and students and local businesses!

They have collected 2.3 tons of food so far during this year’s Poverty Challenge. That’s over 7,000 food items.

Also, a School District Variety Show and Silent Auction raised approximately $8,000 on Saturday night.

The Challenge was started by Shannon Rerie, and the vision was continued by Grant MacLeod.

The City also participated in the challenge.

This is a great example of how community partnerships and generosity can raise awareness of a challenging issue and truly make a difference.

Thank you!

The issue of New Prosperity is still before us, and with recent new developments, the pressure is increasing.

That’s why it’s even more important now to ensure everyone has the right information.

Taseko argues a government agency and the review panel did not use the right information; this week the City corrected information that appeared in an opinion article in the Vancouver Sun.

The City’s position has not changed: we support this important project as long as provincial and federal environmental standards are met, and First Nations are adequately consulted.

The final decision rests with the Minister of Environment and the federal government.

A reminder that the Santa Claus Parade starts Saturday at 11:30 a.m. and runs from 7th Avenue along Oliver Street to Old Courthouse Square, where there are goodies and activities for the whole family before Santa lights the big Christmas tree at 4:30 p.m.

Let’s get out, support our local business, volunteer and have fun with our families.

Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.
