The Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification Lynne Yelich toured two of New Westminster’s federally funded projects on Wednesday. She visited the Youth Centre at Moody Park, a 4,000 square foot facility that cost $2.75m to build, located adjacent to Century House.

Yelich also made a stop at Westminster Pier Park, a 10-acre waterfront recreational space along the Fraser River that will open in the fall. It cost $25.1m, $16.6 m of which came from the Canada British Columbia Building Canada Fund—Communities Component. Yelich said the two projects were “successful.”
