B.C. Conservative caucus meets groups in Kamloops

Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies MP Bob Zimmer

Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies MP Bob Zimmer, along with his B.C. colleagues, are meeting with stakeholders in Kamloops today to hear their concerns and updates.

“My job as Chair of the BC/Yukon Conservative Caucus is to set up stakeholder meetings to ensure that our Members of Parliament and Senators continue to be updated on the issues that are important to the people of British Columbia,” said Zimmer in a news release. “As the Official Opposition, it is our role to keep the Liberal government held to account and these meetings are one of the ways we can consult with Canadians directly about the issues that we need to focus on. I want to thank all the stakeholders who are participating in today’s productive meetings.”

Today’s stakeholder meetings include presentations from: Chamber of Shipping of British Columbia, Forest Products Association of Canada, Amazon, Coal Association of Canada, BC Cattlemen’s Association, go2HR, and Canada West Ski Areas Association.

“We are also here in Kamloops to celebrate the retirement of our friend Senator Nancy Greene Raine,” Zimmer added. “While we are sad to see Nancy go, on behalf of all of BC/Yukon Caucus, I would like to wish her all the best. It has been an honour to work alongside her all of these years.”

BC/Yukon Caucus held a similar stakeholder meeting in Victoria earlier this year.
