Company opens office

ANOTHER sign of increasing economic activity in the area occurred last week with the opening of an office here by the Vancouver-based public relations firm PR Associates.

Although the company, which bills itself as the country’s largest natural resources public relations firm, has been doing business in the northwest for 10 years, company president Robert Simpson told the audience at a reception March 20 here that it was time to open an office in Terrace.

“Our clients said you have to have a presence in Terrace and represent us on the ground,” said Simpson.

PR Associates has a client list that includes Seabridge Gold, which is advancing its KSM gold property near Stewart, Avanti Mining, which wants to open a molybdenum mine at Kitsault, and the Tahltan Nation Development Corporation, which is the economic development arm of the Tahltan Nation.

The company has hired Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski to be its local account manager.

Kitselas elder Edward Innes greeted those who attended the reception, which was held at the Skeena Golf and Country Club.

“Your skin is a different colour than mine, but our blood is the same colour,” said Innes.
