Northern B.C. Winter Games Society
Press Release

Partnership Formed with RCMP

October 15, 2000

The Board of Directors of the Northern B C Winter Games Society, at a meeting held in Mackenzie, in September approved and signed a partnership agreement with the RCMP North District Drug Awareness Service.

The Society and the Service share common values that drugs are harmful substances and the Society supports a zero tolerance to substance misuse by its participants.

This partnership will enable both organizations to work together to promote zero tolerance to the use of drugs within our communities and, in particular, by Games coaches, athletes, chaperones and billeting families.

Society Past President Kathy Bedard stated "The Northern B C Winter Games Society is very honored to have the RCMP North District Drug Awareness Service as a partner. This partnership will strengthen the commitment to a zero tolerance policy of substance misuse throughout the Games weekend. The RCMP North District mirrors the geographic region of the Northern B C Winter Games and our agreement will enable the host communities throughout the North, to organize events around the sharing of information about drugs in sport and in their area."

The 2001 Northern B C Winter Games will be held in Mackenzie, February 1 4.
