He said the Tumbler Ridge booth was well received with about 560 people inquiring about business opportunities, trails and outdoor activities. Councilor White said he also met many people who had lived and worked in Tumbler Ridge at one time. He enjoyed it and is hoping to go to the upcoming show in Calgary to further promote the town of Tumbler Ridge.

Councillor Colledge: Colledge spoke of the need for affordable and low income housing in Tumbler Ridge. It is an emergency situation in Tumbler Ridge. She said she is not sure if Council would be able to sway BC Housing, but perhaps we can apply some provincial pressure to help solve this problem. Most people in need are seniors with health issues, stated Colledge.

Also, Councillor Colledge spoke about the water in Tumbler Ridge and how in the warmer weather, people have been noticing a discoloration of the water. She advises people to contact Town Hall right away if you are having problems with your water.
