The Cariboo Regional District will kick off a series of wildfire community consultation meetings this Sunday in Forest Grove to look back and learn from this summer’s destructive wildfire season. “We’ve got 17 meetings to do and we’ll have to do some other follow-up meetings in some other communities that weren’t as directly impacted,” says CRD Board Chair Al Richmond. “We’re going to be having the various agencies for the most part that were part of the operation.
