Candidates on Arts, Culture & Heritage

The Arts Council has asked all candidates for City Council to answer a few questions about Arts, Culture and Heritage in the community. The partnership with the City is very important to the ability of artists and arts groups to operate and provide programming and do all the things that are so important to the quality of living in Fort St. John. We believe that Arts & Culture is a pillar of a vibrant community and it is important to hear how candidates views on this subject.

We will share their answers as they are returned to us in the order that we receive them
