No lump of coal from RTI
Those that were perhaps too busy this weekend to do a thorough review of the weekly Northern Connector, may have missed a story of community involvement from one of Prince Rupert's most well known industries.
Ridley Terminals, the Ridley Island shipping point for coal shipments through the Northern Pacific Gateway is sponsoring an afternoon of fun for young Rupertites at the Civic Centre complex on Wednesday, December 22nd, from Noon to 4 PM.
Four hours where use of the entire complex will be free, whether it's the pool, the gym, the rink or any of the other activities planned on the day including children's movies and a bouncy castle set up.
The gift to Prince Rupert comes from the employees of Ridley Terminals who thankful for the well paying employment that they have in the city, wished to give back to the community this year, a generous effort that was duly recognized by the Mayor and City councillors this week after notice was given to council this week in a memo by City Manager Gordon Howie.
