Voting on NC Multicentre Loan Extension starts today

Courtesy of the City of Quesnel/Cariboo RD:

Residents within the North Cariboo Recreation and Parks service boundary will be heading to the polls to vote on extending the North Cariboo Multi-Centre borrowing bylaw for a further two years. Residents will be asked the following question at the advance polls and general voting day:

Are you in favour of the Cariboo Regional District extending its authorization to borrow up to $15,000,000 to provide for the construction of a new arena, theatre and multi-purpose event space, for a further two year period, to allow fundraising efforts to continue?

There are two advance voting opportunities, in addition to general voting day. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of these advance voting opportunities because there is lower voter turnout on these days and therefore less time spent waiting in line. Both advance voting opportunities will take place in the CD Hoy Room in Quesnel City Hall on Wednesday, Oct. 30 and Monday, Nov. 4, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

General voting day is Saturday, Nov. 9, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the following locations:

Red Bluff School,
1533 Maple Drive, Quesnel

Parkland Community Hall,
5016 Bjornson Road, Quesnel

Bouchie Lake Elementary School,
2074 Blackwater Road, Quesnel

Barlow Creek Elementary School, 816 Barkerville Hwy, Quesnel
West Fraser Fire Hall, 243 Jackpine Flats Road, Quesnel
Quesnel Legion Branch #94, 262 Kinchant Street, Quesnel

Free bus service will be provided on Nov. 9 between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on regularly scheduled bus routes.

When heading to the polls, you must bring at least two pieces of ID. One of them must have a signature. Between the two, they should prove your address, but if you do not have something with your current address you are allowed to make a formal declaration of residency. Picture identification is not necessary. Typical examples of ID that people use are driver's license, BCID, firearms license, carecard, credit card, SIN, status card, bank card, etc. Even a utility bill will work as a secondary piece of ID.

All eligible north Cariboo residents are strongly encouraged to participate in this important referendum.

Questions about the voting process should be directed to the Cariboo Regional District’s Chief Election Officer, Alice Johnston ( or Deputy Chief Election Officer, Darron Campbell ( at (250) 392-3351 or 1-800-665-1636.
