Pouce Coupe highlights for Hebert include a trio of celebrations in 1992: the 50th Anniversary of the Alaska Highway, 125th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation and 60th anniversary of Pouce Coupe’s incorporation. Hebert’s previous time on council fell during negotiations between the Province and Peace River region for the Fair Share Agreement, designed to tackle fiscal imbalance and bridge the gap between industry and communities in the area. The first version of Fair Share Agreement was in place in 1994.
