Hy-Tech Drilling vice president of operations Fraser Stewart looking over the Smithers company's equipment with Premier Christy Clark and Liberal Stikine candidate Wanda Good Wednesday.

Premier Christy Clark’s visit to Smithers

Premier Clark visited Hy-Tech before an event organized by the Smithers District Chamber of Commerce, where protestors gathered outside.

Highlights from Premier Christy Clark’s visit. Read the full story in the Nov. 30 edition of The Interior News, including how Wet’suwet’en chiefs were disappointed that they were not able to meet the Premier to pass a draft reconciliation framework agreement, a new legal challenge to come from two houses of the Gitxsan, and the Premier’s thoughts on topics as wide ranging as LNG, the fentanyl crisis, and ICBC rates.

Anti-LNG protestors outside a meeting organized by the Smithers District Chamber of Commerce, where Premier Christy Clark met with about 50 members of the public.

The staff at Hy-Tech Drilling got a chance to show off some of the innovation happening at the Smithers-based company to Premier Clark and Liberal Stikine candidate Wanda Good.

Not everyone gathered outside the Aspen was against expanding the LNG industry. Laurel Menzel said she had recently lost her job at Highland Helicopters in Smithers because of a downturn in the resource industry. She also said she has a home in Fort Nelson, where there is a drop in oil and gas production, that she “can’t give away.”
