Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier supports the decision by Northern Health to place a moratorium on the sale of the Peace River Haven facility.

Background:

Northern Health is committed to maintain the Peace River Haven facility on the active listing with the realtor. However, provision has been made with the realtor for a 90 day period, beginning May 2 and expiring on the end of regular business on August 1, before a sale process begins.

This is an important development as it allows for the receipt and consideration of any and all offers, with the provision that any response or counter-offer from Northern Health would recognize and respect the 90 day period. This allows any interested non-profit organizations to put forth a bid.

Any proposals made regarding the facility should be made via the realtor and done using the formal real estate process and listing agreement that is in place. Information about the building is available from the realtor.
