Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen brings his third annual economic tour of the riding to Fort St. James next week.

The theme for this year’s economic forums is renewing the Northwest and supporting economic growth.   Community leaders work with small groups to discuss how existing and future economic projects of value can be supported by elected officials and residents.  

Participants will also explore whether ideas from the forums can be supported by Renewal Northwest, a non-partisan regional working group founded by Cullen two years ago to identify and assist sustainable development opportunities in Northwest BC.

Everyone is welcome to attend these free forums, which last two hours.  The Fort St. James forum will be 3-5pm Saturday, Feb. 12 at the Seniors Centre.
