The BCNE in Prince George this summer has been cancelled.
“The Prince George Agricultural and Historical Association announces that with respect to Health Care Workers, Essential Workers and the health and well-being of our greater community, and following the recommendations of Dr. Bonnie Henry, the British Columbia Northern Exhibition 2020 will be cancelled,” reads a statement on the association’s website. “This decision was not made lightly, but we know that it was the right one. This would have been our 108th year. The BCNE has survived many hurdles in the past such as wars, the depression, wildfires, and hard economic times. With the support of our community we will survive COVID-19 as well.”
