In her concluding comments at this year’s UBCM conference, Premier Christy Clark announced that B.C. will be moving forward with a bridge to replace the Massey Tunnel and that there will be infrastructure planning grants available for Northwest LNG communities.
The UBCM conference is a chance for local governments to engage with each other and the provincial government and an opportunity for local governments to meet face to face with provincial cabinet ministers. It allows for an exchange of ideas and best practices, all aimed at making B.C. a better place.
