The PRRD wants to see some proof.

The Regional Board is requesting the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General show proof of data relayed in a letter to MLA Dan Davies earlier this year.

"The Minister’s letter suggests the area is unlikely to experience a dramatic slippage of the remaining hillside that might further impact homes to occur. The data suggests that if movement was to recommence, it would be a slow-moving slide as had been experienced in the previous slide that initiated on September 30, 2018," say board officials.

Once the data is received, the Peace River Regional District plans to have the data verified by applicable experts to consider whether evacuation alerts and orders may be removed from the OId Fort area.

The Peace River Regional District Board recently reviewed the letter sent by Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General on July 26, 2019.
