Census 2006

I looked at the 2006 census results, and they are horrific for rural BC. My own town of Lillooet (which I admit I left in 2004) has fallen to 2340 people. This is a drop of 800 people in town over the last 10 years.

I am going to try and go through and look as some of the numbers for the towns in BC. But they are are not good. Prince Rupert, Kitimat, William's Lake, Mackenzie and more towns that I feel are the life and soul of BC are declining. -15% has happened.......

Rural BC is dieing.
