Today the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) announced its participation in the Canada 150 Community Leaders network. The CRD Board of Directors is pleased to name Chair Al Richmond as the local voice for the CRD for Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.
The network will be comprised of Community Leaders from thousands of local governments across Canada, ensuring the local government voice is front-and-centre during the year-long celebrations.
Recognizing that community building is nation building, this unique national network of Community Leaders will ensure that local governments are showcased as part of the Canada 150 celebrations and beyond.
“I am honoured to represent the Cariboo Regional District as a Canada 150 Community Leader,” stated CRD Chair Al Richmond. “This network of community leaders will amplify the celebrations across the country and highlight all levels of government throughout our nation.”
The Cariboo Regional District currently provides more than 100 local government services to taxpayers including fire protection, land-use planning, waste and recycling services, and invasive plant management as well as libraries and recreation facilities.
The CRD consists of 12 electoral areas and four incorporated member municipalities, including Quesnel, Williams Lake, 100 Mile House, and Wells. The region straddles Highway 97 from 70 Mile in the south to five kilometres south of Hixon in the north and from the Cariboo Mountains in the east to the Coastal Mountains in the west.
