Director takes rural issues national

An RDCK Director will take rural issues to the national stage when she represents BC at the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) Board table.

Leah Main of Silverton has been appointed to three FCM committees: Environmental Issues and Sustainable Development; Municipal Infrastructure and Transportation Policy; and the Rural Forum.

“I’m very pleased to be sitting on these committees as they were my top choices,” says Main. “They definitely position me to have input on issues that greatly affect rural areas and small municipalities, both economically and socially.”

Main explains that she is particularly concerned that rural areas and communities are at a disadvantage in accessing programs. She is committing to working with her colleagues across the country to overcome that deficit by raising awareness and helping to create supportive initiatives within ongoing and new programs.

Main was elected to FCM’s BC Caucus in June. She will attend her first FCM Board meeting in September in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
