This morning, I spent the morning filling Christmas Shoe Boxes with some lovely Seniors and a lot of happy helpers. The boxes will go to children all over the world who live in poverty and war-torn countries. These gifts of love will bring incredible joy to each and every child! Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, a Christian relief organization run by Franklin Graham. To date, Operation Christmas Child has collected and distributed over 100 million shoebox gifts worldwide. In 2013, Canadians donated more than 664,000 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for hurting children around the world. Thank you all for your generous donations of gifts and time.
Wednesday morning we officially announced the beginning of bus service right to the front door of the FSJ Hospital/Peace Villa.
As a City, we are committed to working in partnership with other organizations to build our community. This is another example of how a great partnership between BC Transit, Northern Health, & City has succeeded in making our community a better and safer place to live!

Thanks to Fort St. John Paramedics, Darrel Key & John Tebulte, for the meeting & tour of your Ambulance Station. It was great to see the equipment that you work with and learn from you about the challenges you face. After seeing and hearing all about what you do, I have a greater appreciation for the knowledge, skills and abilities you possess which you use to intervene in life-threatening injuries and perform pre-hospital emergency care. We appreciate you and all the vital work you do in our community!
