The Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, visited Fernie last week as part of her tour throughout East Kootenay communities.
Fernie Mayor Mary Giuliano and council accompanied Guichon as they toured various locations on September 4 in Fernie. The group watched young riders, including Dylan Siggers, Nakoda Mason, Paul Genovese and Liam Teetzel, who dazzled the Lt. Governor with their 360s and back flips jumping in the bike park. Guichon presented Siggers with a medal to recognize his efforts working on the bike park.
After viewing the mine rescue competition set up at the Fernie Memorial arena, there was a public reception held at the Fernie Heritage Library. Fernie Academy and Isabella Dickens students sang during the reception, which was hosted by the City of Fernie.
