Last week I had the honour of joining representatives from the Cariboo-Chilcotin Regional Hospital District and Interior Health.
It’s been a few weeks now since the municipal elections took place across British Columbia.
Well, it was a long couple of months, but a very productive couple of months.
The government introduced legislation that, if passed, would replace the outdated Family Relations Act which has been around since 1978.
Nov. 13-19 has been proclaimed Multiculturalism Week here in British Columbia.
Living here in British Columbia we know how much our province has to offer.
I don’t think I could overstate how huge of a week it’s been for British Columbia.
Foster Family Month in B.C. is being celebrated in October.
The week of Oct. 9-15 is Fire Prevention Week in British Columbia. Emergency BC, local firefighters, and fire service personnel across the province will be raising awareness of fire safety and keeping the public informed about the importance of fire prevention.
As you’ve probably heard by now, the main focus of this government can be summed up in one word — jobs. Canada Starts Here: The B.C. Jobs Plan was announced by Premier Christy Clark and is aimed at creating jobs for British Columbians today, while planning and creating a positive climate for job creation in the future.
Living in the Cariboo, they are a part of our natural landscape, they contribute to our local economy, and they provide numerous recreation opportunities. I am talking about, of course — our forests. I wanted to take the opportunity to recognize National Forest Week because of the many contributions forests make to the Cariboo, and British Columbia.
There’s something we all face on a daily basis and cannot stop no matter how hard we may try —that’s right, we’re all getting older.
Well, it’s that time of year again when students across British Columbia are preparing for a new school year. Whether it’s elementary, high school, or university, it’s an exciting time for them all. There’s plenty to look forward to as fall approaches and the learning begins.
Working as an MLA representing the Cariboo Chilcotin, my days can sometimes be very challenging.
This week I had the pleasure of making a very significant announcement for our region.
It is sad news that federal NDP leader Jack Layton passed away Monday morning.
Recently the Ministry of Health expanded the resources available to British Columbians by increasing access to dieticians, making it easier for people to make informed and healthy choices. This service has been integrated into 8-1-1, a hotline which gives people access to non-emergency public health information.
This week I’d like to write about a fantastic group that has a very exciting event coming up and who also just received an important grant from the provincial government: B.C.’s 4-H clubs.
With the recent announcement of the Community Gaming Grant Review session coming to Williams Lake, I wanted to take this chance to encourage everyone with a vested interest to attend.
My job as an MLA representing the people in the Cariboo-Chilcotin is a great one and I love what I do.
