The Prince George Citizen - - FRONT PAGE - Cit­i­zen staff

The last Cit­i­zen poll ques­tion asked “the City of P.G. will hold an Oct. 28 ref­er­en­dum to get ap­proval to bor­row $35 mil­lion to build a pool to re­place Four Sea­sons Pool and $15 mil­lion to build a fire hall to re­place the one down­town. How will you vote?”

“Yes, both of those fa­cil­i­ties are old and need to be re­placed” took a strong lead with 38 per cent and 589 votes, while “no, the city needs to look at other pos­si­bil­i­ties, such as part­ner­ing with the North­ern B.C. YMCA” came in at 26 per cent and 398 votes, fol­lowed by “no, those costs are too high and there are other pri­or­i­ties” took 20 per cent and 307 votes.

In low gear was “yes, the cost of these fa­cil­i­ties needs to be shared by present and fu­ture res­i­dents” with 17 per cent and 263 votes.

There was a to­tal of 1,557 votes. Re­mem­ber this is not a sci­en­tific poll.

Next ques­tion is “do you be­lieve Grey­hound should be al­lowed to pull out of pro­vid­ing ser­vice to ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties in the cen­tral and north­ern in­te­rior?”
