A hub for agriculture, forestry, and oil and gas, Grande Prairie is integral to Alberta’s flourishing economy. It also features many attractive features for visitors, including a lively arts scene and numerous hiking trails and other recreation opportunities. This week I will be in Grande Prairie to take in the sights of this vibrant community.
This will be my first trip back to Grande Prairie since my campaign for the Senate, and I look forward to reconnecting with constituents and learning more about their priorities and concerns.
Major stops include:
- Visiting Grande Prairie sawmill, where I’ll hear firsthand about the state of Alberta’s forestry sector
- Meeting with Mayor Bill Given and hear from the executive of the Grande Prairie Chamber of Commerce
- Speaking to the Grande Prairie Rotary Club
- Touring the Centre for Creative Arts and the Centre for Research and Innovation
Stay tuned to social media for updates on my trip.
