This week’s Top 10 is an edition from my summer Constituency Assistant,  Lindsay Gardner. Lindsay is originally from Ladysmith, BC (on Vancouver Island) but moved to Prince George in 2006 to attend UNBC for one semester.  Nearly 5 years later, Lindsay still loves life in Northern British Columbia. She has written this week’s Top 10 on the reasons she stayed in Prince George.

Things will pick up in the next few weeks and off we go again.

On another note, I don't see prices moving up here until we see some new employment. PG has done great job holding its own but we do need new industry etc and that appears to be coming along (see my other blogs and whats happening in Prince George)....
