Dear Lara

I had the opportunity to present to the Regional District of Fraser Fort George Board of Directors on August 18, 2011 the Industry Canada Initiative program that would all rural and remote residences in British Columbia the opportunity to receive high speed internet.

As a follow up I am interested in meeting with community associations, rural regional groups and others who are interested in learning more about this program. I am wondering if there are any groups or organizations in your Area that would be interested in a presentation or meeting? If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Thanks
