There were a few bumps along the way but the City of Quesnel has now submitted a bid to host the 2024 BC Winter Games.
Mayor Bob Simpson has confirmed that they now have the necessary letters of support from the School District partners that were originally holding out.
He says the city gave advance notice to the main partners that they were putting a bid in, but he says they ended up needing more time to work some things out with those secondary partner groups…
Originally, there wasn’t enough time to iron out those details.
Simpson says now it is a waiting game to see if they are successful, but he says he feels pretty good about it.
“As a community in the north with the amenities that we’ve got, with the partnerships to the north and south of us that we’ve got, we’re in a pretty good position to put that bid in, and of course as people will know we hosted a winter games in the past when we did have the strength of the amenities and venues that we do now.”
