Burns Lake mayor to sit on enviro/economy roundtable

The B.C. Minister of Environment has announced a new roundtable on the environment and the economy and the mayor of Burns Lake is a participant.

The roundtable includes communities, industry, labour, environmental and First Nations reps who will meet regularly with government.

Burns Lake mayor Luke Strimbold explains,

“I think we as British Columbians have a value in our environment. We live in B.C. because of the things that are natural that our earth offers us. So what we are trying to do is have a look at our environmental values and then also look at the economy and find a balance.”

Strimbold says the group had their first meeting in Vancouver last week to get to know everyone at the table and hear a presentation from London Drugs on the company’s recycling initiatives.
