As I drive by the Family Y, I see the new fire hall under construction.
What really catches ones eye is the fact they’rebuilding with steel studs rather than wood. A few years ago, with great fanfare, the Wood Innovation Centre was built on the site of the old PG hotel in downtown Prince George. Was it not the object of the Wood Innovation Centre to promote the use of wood in future buildings?
That mandate seems to have fallen on deaf years at city hall and the consultants who approved the new fire hall project.
A sad day for Prince George, a city that was built on the backs of forestry.
