The city said Hall was "pursuing priorities" for Prince George in talks with federal officials, which included the Minister of Veterans' Affairs as well as representatives from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Communities, the Ministry of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, and the Forest Products Association of Canada.

"Over the last while, a number of conversations at council have identified the importance of other levels of government to advancing priorities for Prince George. These include transportation infrastructure, RCMP service, and the performing arts centre," said Hall in the email.

Hall was on hand at the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance awards banquet when the 2015 Canada Winter Games won two national honours.

"Being invited to attend the CSTA awards in Ottawa provided a perfect opportunity to arrange meetings with government officials and other organizations that are important for advancing the City's interests," he said.

On Monday and Tuesday, city manager Kathleen Soltis and Rob van Adrichem, director of external relations, joined Hall.
