News Mr. PG gets a new set of signs SHARE ON: Colin Dacre, staff Tuesday, Sep. 30th, 2014 Mayor and council were on hand today at Mr. PG to help unveil a new set of interpretive signs. PG Heritage Commission Chair Jeff Elder says the signs are similar to the others the Heritage Commission has placed along the river; “The signs just tell some of the stories, about some of the different versions of Mr Prince George. He used to be downtown; the first one was actually at the former Simon Fraser Hotel, he was about a meter and a half tall and they used to dress him up for conventions.” He went on to say that like him or not, Mr. PG is a big part of local culture; “The community really got behind Mr. Prince George. There are many versions of him, there are souvenir miniatures, there’s a lamp and a phone booth. It’s just a part of our history” The signs were placed in preparation for city’s centennial next year.
