I have briefed the Cariboo RD Board on the above noted sessions I attended and suggested the Board will want to
consider a connectivity strategy to guide its’ actions in relation to internet and cell phone services in the rural
areas of the Cariboo Regional District. I expect the Board will take up this matter further at its’ upcoming
Strategic Planning Session this month
