Throne Speech 2018: Saanich North and the Islands is ready!

 

Throne Speech 2018: We are ready!

Today I responded to Throne Speech 2018. I am happy with the direction our government is taking. I support the approach. Despite the speech being light on details, I outlined several opportunities in Saanich North and the Islands where we can work with government on many of the initiatives that they outlined in the Throne Speech. We are doing the ground work and we have invested the in the relationships. In short, we are ready!

Statement celebrating ORCCA Dental Care Society

 

Making smiles on the Saanich Peninsula

The Oral Care for Children and Adolescents Dental Clinic Society (ORCCA) helps children who do not have dental insurance or whose parents cannot afford dental care. In short, they do great work out of an annex at Sidney Elementary. Today, I not only celebrate ORCCA but also what happens with the provincial government supports the incredible work of volunteers and citizens who step up to help those who need it.

Talking healthcare in Saanich North and the Islands

[Correction! The Jan.24/18 event with Hon. Adrian Dix starts at 6:30pm and doors open at 6:00pm]

This morning we hosted an excellent public discussion about health and wellbeing in Saanich North and the Islands.

During the month of January we are doing extensive consultations about healthcare, from service delivery to public access. I am learning a lot (I had a lot to learn). I am excited that we have had the opportunity to meet so many fantastic people over the past few weeks.
