QUESNEL, B.C. – All five of the City of Quesnel’s resolutions put forward at this year’s Union of British Columbia Municipalities annual convention met with success. These include resolutions regarding:
- Support for Bill M202 B.C. Rail Corridor Safety Act 2008
- North Central Retraining Programs and Services
- Cariboo Connector
- Carbon Tax
- Licence plate transferability
“We felt these issues were important and worthy of discussion,” said Mayor Nate Bello. “We’re pleased that other municipalities and regional districts recognize the importance of these matters and supported them. This is an example of what local government can do when we work together towards common goals.”
Quesnel’s resolutions regarding the carbon tax and licence plate transferability were amalgamated with several others that were originally submitted from various other northern communities at the North Central Municipal Associations annual convention earlier this year. The resolutions were put together and presented by the UBCM executive as one cohesive resolution.
