Weekly MP Report from Jay Hill

first_imgMP Report by Jay Hill, M.P.“Conservative Government Invests $20-million in Central and Northern BC” These approved projects are once again wide-ranging in scope, from the forestry industry to energy efficiency initiatives to health sector improvements. In all, this second round of announced projects will create or maintain over 1100 jobs in our region over the next two years. As I recently announced, the federal government has entrusted NDIT with $30-million under the Community Adjustment Fund (CAF) to support projects in central and northern British Columbia. NDIT was chosen by our government to deliver the CAF funding to central and northern British Columbia communities based on the organization’s expertise in local employment needs and economic opportunities. To date, they’re more than fulfilling my expressed mandate for them to be “responsive, yet responsible” when investing CAF dollars.Advertisement CAF was created as part of our Conservative Government’s Economic Action Plan to help reduce the short-term impacts of restructuring in communities that are heavily reliant on resource-based industries, including forestry and mining. It is designed to fund initiatives that create jobs today and in the future. Two weeks ago, NDIT identified 23 projects throughout central and northern British Columbia that will receive $10-million in CAF funding. This week in Prince George, the Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Natural Resources, and I had the opportunity to join local business and community leaders as NDIT identified seven more projects in our region that will receive the remaining $20-million in CAF funding through repayable business loans. Overall, the $30-million CAF investment made by our Conservative Government, in partnership with NDIT, is a sound investment of federal tax dollars in over 1400 jobs in central and northern British Columbia over the next two years. The Doig River Environmental Limited Partnership will receive a repayable contribution of $614,301 to develop a 32.5 hectare secure landfill facility near Fort St. John. This project is expected to create 20 jobs during its construction period, five to eight new full-time jobs at the landfill, and up to 20 new service and contract jobs. In Prince George-Peace River, Del-Tech Manufacturing Inc. will receive a repayable contribution of $5.5-million to build a thermal oil plant which will be leased to Canfor’s Mackenzie sawmill, investing in over 240 jobs while also stabilizing work for logging and contractors.Advertisement – Advertisement -This week our Conservative Government, in partnership with the Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT), once again invested in local projects designed to create jobs and help to restore economic stability in our region. Commonwealth Health Corporation is getting a repayable contribution of $1-million for a downtown redevelopment project in Prince George. This funding will be used to complete renovations and upgrades to an existing Prince George building to accommodate the proposed Commonwealth Medical Centre. I could not be more pleased with the partnership we have forged with NDIT and I look forward to seeing what new opportunities it will bring to our region in the future.last_img read more

Striker on the move? ‘I want to get to the next level’, Arsenal target declares

first_img1 Alexandre Lacazette has signalled the end of his Olympique Lyonnais career by declaring it is time to take his performances to ‘the next level’.The France striker has been linked with a big-money move away from the Parc OL in the last few seasons, with Arsenal and West Ham making their interest known last year.The 25-year-old, who came through the youth ranks at the Ligue 1 club, has impressively netted 89 goals in the last three campaigns and feels it is now time to leave his comfort zone and prove himself elsewhere.In an interview with French publication L’Equipe, Lacazette said: “I think that’s [the summer] the right moment [to leave].READ MORE: Lyon chairman admits Alexandre Lacazette could leave if interested clubs ‘match our demands’“I want to discover something else, to put myself in danger and to get to the next level.“People say in passing that I score goals, but I know very well that on the European level I am not very well known.“I want to see if I can answer the questions that people are asking, and to make further progress.”Slaven Bilic’s Hammers had a bid of over £40million rejected for the forward last summer, while Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool have strongly been linked with summer swoops.Champions League semi-finalists Atletico Madrid have also shown an interest in bringing him to the Spanish capital, according to reports.

It was great to be in contention and we learned a lot about what it will take to win a championship.” Dunn is Drake’s only senior this year. The Bulldogs are set to return seven and they welcome two high school student-athletes to the roster in 2019-20.I also thank Grace for 4 great years.
