“Please stay safe out there”, says Brother Doug McKay, Local 258 IBEW Business Manager/Financial Secretary, in the wake of destructive flooding and landslides that have wreaked havoc on major roadways and communities from Abbotsford to Merritt to Duffy Lake to Princeton in Southwestern BC. Storms have also affected parts of the Island and Prince Rupert on BC’s north coast.

“There has been considerable damage and many of our members have been working the front lines, assessing and restoring power, keeping damaged trees trimmed and controlling traffic. We know many of our members also live in those communities that have been ravaged by flood waters and/or landslide activity. Thank you for the work you are doing in difficult circumstances,” says McKay.

More rainstorms are expected over the next few days.
