FORT ST JOHN – Wednesday’s event with Rex Murphy in Fort St. John has been postponed due to illness, the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association (ICBA) announced today.

ICBA had sold out its planned Evening with Rex Murphy at the North Peace Cultural Centre but, unfortunately, the National Post columnist and CBC commentator is too ill to travel this week.

“We are very disappointed to have to postpone Rex’s visit, as we were looking forward to hearing his perspective on the current crisis gripping Canada’s oil and gas industry,” said Chris Gardner, ICBA president. “We apologize to our sponsors, and members of the community who purchased tickets, for the inconvenience, and we wish Rex a speedy return to health.”

Ticket holders can obtain a full refund (with proof of purchase) from the North Peace Cultural Centre by phone at 250-785-1992, or in person at the box office at 10015 100 Ave. Sponsors will be contacted directly by ICBA.
