Joint Alberta-B.C. Cabinet Huddle In P.G. Today

The Premier of Alberta and members of his Cabinet are in Prince George today, meeting with Premier Gordon Campbell and members of his cabinet.

B.C.’s Minister of Forests and Range, Pat Bell, has said the two governments will be discussing matters of mutual concern, like the mountain pine beetle, the oil and gas industry, the Highway 16 corridor and the opportunities presented by the Port of Prince Rupert.

Bell says it is most appropriate for this session to be held in Prince George as the issues impact this community and northern B.C.
