MLA Report - September 2016

MLA Report - September 2016

While business in Victoria is not the first thing on everyone’s mind as this lovely summer comes to a close, I thought it a good time to provide an update on my activities representing you in the legislature.

We’ve seen both a fall and spring sitting of the House, and now a brief summer session. Delta continues to face serious pressures on housing affordability, doctor shortages and from infrastructure projects that threaten both our natural ecosystems and our farmland. There are people in our midst who need assistance, and my constituency office is extremely busy helping individuals with bureaucratic hurdles. In Victoria, there have been debates on bills and on the budget; questions to prepare for Question Period; Members’ Statements to write; committee meetings and briefings to attend. 

We have outlined below just a few of the activities in both my constituency and Victoria offices. I must say, once again, that it is a distinct honour to be your MLA and I remain committed to being your voice in Victoria.

Testing MLA’s faith in our democracy

I am an optimist when it comes to democracy in our province.

Thanks to Delta's first responders in fentanyl-related overdoses

My sincere thanks go to all of Delta’s first responders who helped nine people facing potentially fatal drug overdoses earlier this week. Our first responders, including Delta Police, Delta Firefighters and British Columbia Ambulance Service, do life-saving work and deserve our gratitude. In this case, we were lucky the outcomes were not worse.
