Congratulations to Denny Morrison of Fort St. John for being a silver medial Olympian at the Sochi Olympics! He was able to train at the world class sports facility, the Pomeroy Sport Centre in Fort St. John.
When I attended the Cumulative Environmental, Community and Health Effects of Multiple Natural Resource Developments in Northern British Columbia, on Jan. 10, one of the key note speakers, Lori Ackerman, mayor of Fort St. John, proudly announced the work of her community in getting the Pomeroy Sport Centre up and running thanks to the progressive Fair Share Agreement that city negotiated. Thanks to that city, Morrison had a place to train.
Makes me proud to be a Northern British Columbian. Although I have never met Morrison I can say a kid in my neck of the woods is an Olympic winner.
