Statement by MP Zimmer on the Closure of NorthRiver Midstream’s Fort Nelson Northern Complex

FORT ST JOHN – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies, issued the following statement regarding the closure of the Fort Nelson Northern Complex:

“This announcement is very unfortunate for all in the North and most of all the residents of Fort Nelson. One consistent source of work for residents in Fort Nelson, when other sectors have struggled, has been the Fort Nelson North Processing Facility and now that’s gone.

“Our natural resource sector is under attack in our country and sadly Fort Nelson residents are the latest victims.”
