It can’t be easy having 300 people rapidly descend on your facility, set up camp on one of your rinks, turn the other into a cafeteria and fill your parking lot with an armada of trucks and armoured vehicles.
I know I speak for all my soldiers in recognizing the staff of the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex for hosting us with such generosity, flexibility and patience.
This outstanding level of support has been instrumental to the continuing success of our mission, which remains, in concert with the RCMP and our other government partners, ensuring the safety of life and property here in Williams Lake and beyond.
