PRINCE GEORGE - The Rocky Mountain Rangers will be the recipients of Freedom of the City, the highest award for a citizen or organization, granted by the City of Prince George.

The Rangers are a Primary Reserve infantry regiment of the Canadian Armed Forces.

“Receiving the Freedom of a City is the most prestigious honour a Regiment can receive from a City – it is symbolic of the trust and partnership held between our Regiment and the City of Prince George,” says Lieutenant-Colonel Normand Dionne, Commanding Officer of the Rocky Mountain Rangers. “The soldiers of Prince George and the Regiment as a whole are extremely proud to receive this recognition.” 

The granting of the award will involve a ‘March to City Hall’ on the morning of Saturday, April 21st, followed by a ceremony in front of City Hall, and a special dinner that evening at the Prince George Civic Centre.
