On Dec. 4 the BC Conservative leader will travel to Kitimat where he’ll receive a tour of UA Piping Industry College and meet with students before visiting other local businesses.

Later he’ll attend a late afternoon reception with local dignitaries, business leaders, and members and supporters of the BC Conservative Party. The event will be held at the Best Western Inn in Terrace.

Cummins then drives to Prince Rupert on Dec. 5 to tour a number of industrial and business operations, and participate in a mid-day coffee meeting with local supporters before returning to Terrace.

On Dec. 6, Cummins will tour the main Northwest Community College campus in Terrace.

At lunch he will be the featured speaker at a luncheon at the Northern Motor Inn. The event will be hosted by Mike Brousseau, a local businessman and BC Conservative candidate in the 2009 general election. The BC Conservative leader will fly back to the Lower Mainland on Thursday afternoon.
