Premier Gordon Campbell is in Prince Rupert today, with what appears to be a full day of events.

The Premier will meet with local government officials during the day, and at four p.m. will join Prince Rupert mayor Herb Pond at Mariner’s Park for an announcement regarding “provincial support for community initiatives in Prince Rupert.”

Later in the evening Campbell will participate in a private reception with local Liberal party members beginning at six p.m.

However, the Premier’s reception may not be entirely positive, as some residents are planning a rally against coalbed methane development in the Sacred Headwaters outside of City Hall at five p.m., and are hoping for a large crowd to turn out and show their supprt.

Look for more on these stories later in the day on thenorthernview.com and full details in the April 30 issue of The Northern View.
