Hon. John Rustad, MLA for Nechako Lakes, presented a cheque to Lisa Striegler from Carrier Sekani Family Services in Fort St. James.

The cheque for $10,000 was presented on behalf of Nechako Healthy Community Alliance. Organizations from Smithers and Burns Lake have also received funding in the same amount.
