The Town of High Prairie is proclaiming Oct. 6 as West Fraser Day in recognition of the company’s contributions to the community. While council was unanimous in its support for the proclamation, a long debate ensued over whether or not councillors would get paid to attend the open house. “If you want to go, go, but you aren’t able to charge,” said Councillor Brian Panasiuk. “I like the idea of proclaiming West Fraser Day. I’m all for it,” he added. Mayor Linda Cox presented the idea to council.
