Chilliwack Chiefs game against Coquitlam postponed due to Highway 7 problems

Landslides and a car accident had Highway 7 closing, then opening, then closing again Dec. 1

A Chilliwack Chiefs home game scheduled for Wednesday night (Dec. 1) has been postponed.

The Coquitlam Express were due to pay a visit, but landslides and a car crash on Highway 7 forced the BCHL to make a tough call.

With Highway 1 still out of commission because of flooding, Highway 7 is the only way the Express could get to Chilliwack.

The Chiefs announced the postponement on Twitter, saying all tickets for the game will be valid for any future game.
