    Christy ClarkTonight at sundown, Jewish families in B.C. and around the world celebrate the beginning of Passover, which commemorates the freedom of their ancestors from slavery in ancient Egypt. For centuries, Passover has served as a reminder to treasure what is most important: family, community, and historical memory. It’s also an opportunity to celebrate the contributions B.C.’s Jewish community has made to build strong prosperous communities throughout B.C., making our province a better place. On this most joyous occasion, I wish all Jewish British Columbians 'Chag Sameach'.”

    Christy ClarkCurrently, there are 85 wildfires burning in BC. With hotter, drier weather, early wildfire season is the new reality in BC. It’s up to everyone to be vigilant and respect fire bans. http://ow.ly/4n0myB

    Christy ClarkIn 90 years - more than 64 of them as Queen and Canada's head of state - Her Majesty has experienced and helped shape world history like few others, from the Second World War to today. Hers is the longest-ever reign by a Queen regnant in world history, including as Canada's head of state, and remains an example of grace and dignity personified. On behalf of British Columbia, I wish Her Majesty a happy birthday.

    Christy ClarkFor seven years, Don McRae has served the people of Comox Valley with class, distinction, and a smile. He has played an invaluable role in the caucus room and at the Cabinet table. In his roles as Minister of Education, Minister of Social Development and Social Innovation, and Minister Agriculture, Don faced very different challenges with the same focus, determination, and unflappable good humour. I understand his decision not to seek re-election, but I am very sorry to see him go. I want to thank him for all his hard work and commitment to growing a diverse economy on Vancouver Island and across British Columbia. On behalf of all Don’s friends and colleagues in caucus, I wish Don and his family the very best.

    Christy ClarkBritish Columbians deserve to feel safe in their communities, but for the people of Surrey and Williams Lake, gang violence has jeopardized that. That’s why today, we’re proving $23 million for an expanded province-wide guns and gangs strategy. This will mean more integrated police teams, prosecutors, and resources to ensure the RCMP has everything they need to bring these low-lifes to justice.

    Lana PophamPlaying out today we have a clear difference between Leader John Horgan and Premier Christy Clark. John likes to talk to real peeps, in real time, on a real bus (not a bus with a BC Liberal logo painted on the side).....and this morning Christy is trying to get BC to support a trade deal that she hasn't even read. Who do you want leading this Province? .

    Lana PophamToday Premier Christy Clark played her usual political games....she brought forward a motion for debate without much warning. The Premier forced an "ideological" debate on the Trans Pacific Partnership this afternoon. Basically she and her BC Liberals stated it's the very best thing since sliced bread and they support it 100%.....In response Leader John Horgan put forward a motion to refer such a discussion to the Finance Committee. This would allow for proper discussion and consultation. In response the BC Liberals came back and goaded us for a couple hours while trying to show our lack of support for such a trade deal. Here's the thing....nobody has read the fine print....nobody really knows definitively how BC would be affected by the TPP, but what most understand is that the "devil is in the details". The Premier is all politics all the time....and I want everybody to realize this. Leader John Horgan shows his intellect and humour with his response....and he shows us how much better this Province could be under his leadership come 2017.

    Lana PophamOne year from today, the Writ will drop and the 2017 provincial election will begin. Thanks for all of your support over the past 7 years....it means the world to me. I feel very grateful to have won the last two elections and I hope to continue representing Saanich South in 2017 - but the BC Liberals and BC Greens are already working to take me out of this seat. Imagine a government that believes sustainable agriculture can unlock prosperity in communities across the province. That’s what I believe in, and that’s what I’m fighting for everyday. I am the strongest voice for agriculture and food in the BC Legislature. You know me in the agricultural and food world and I hope you know how hard I have worked on this file. I am asking you to consider donating $10 /month to my campaign for re-election in May 2017. (That costs just $2.50/mo after the tax rebate.) https://secure.bcndp.org/donate/lanapopham/monthly Cheers, Lana Popham

    Christy ClarkBy upgrading their fast-charging infrastructure, the City of West Kelowna is making it easier for BC drivers to go electric. We’ve signed a pledge that all new vehicles will be emissions-free by 2050. That’s only 34 years from now, but thanks to projects like this that add to BC’s public charging network, we’re going to achieve our goal.

    Christy ClarkGreat to be in Kelowna for the annual Council of Forest Industries convention and talk about my #1 priority, the softwood lumber agreement. We’ll continue to fight for the forest industry until there is a managed deal, with no quotas. With an additional $8 million invested in the Forestry Innovation fund, we’re also supporting industry jobs by funding market access, development, and innovations to advance the use of wood in BC. http://ow.ly/10t2oG

    Lana Popham"Mr. Horgan sought to refer his bill to a legislature committee to ensure the Liberals would be forced to debate the details. What happened instead was the next best thing, strategically, for the Opposition. In a standing vote in the House, the New Democrats, Independent MLA Vicki Huntington and BC Green MLA Andrew Weaver all supported the bill. The government side stood against the manoeuvre, a clear indication that the bill is destined to die on the order paper – just like the four previous versions that the NDP has introduced over the years."

    Lana PophamChristy Clark a climate action plan failure. Bill 19 passed in the legislature tonight....a bill that exempts 70 per cent of LNG emissions from regulation and basically gives LNG Companies a "get out of jail free card". Her Government continues to lower the environmental bar just to attract investment by LNG corporations. "This is a government who's leading, not on the climate change file, but I think it's on the file of entitlement. In this case, I believe it's because they're so desperate to fulfil campaign promises that aren't going happen that they're really throwing away our future in this province. It's a selfish, selfish decision. They're not legislating like we're in one of the most important races of our lives, and that's the race to slow down the effects of climate change on our planet. This is not a joke. It's not something that should be built around election cycles. We are in a race for our lives with climate change. Other areas of the world are acknowledging that. At the same time that they're acknowledging that, we're passing legislation that basically greenwashes climate change legislation with reckless, empty rhetoric that doesn't mean anything. And it's very, very dangerous." Lana Popham on Bill 19, April 6,2016

    Christy ClarkAs BC Hydro works to renew our infrastructure for future generations and meet the need of BC’s growing economy, we’re taking another step forward for Site C by awarding the $470 million turbine and generator contract to Voith Hydro Inc. Getting to yes means more jobs and opportunities for skilled workers, apprentices and BC families in Prince George and the Peace.

    Lana PophamVICTORIA— New Democrat Leader John Horgan introduced the Campaign Finance Reform Act today, a bill which would ban corporate and union donations as well as limit the amount of personal donations to a political party. In an immediate vote, Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals voted unanimously ‘no’ on this bill, refusing to debate it and choosing to keep big corporate money in their pockets. “Other provinces have instituted strict rules on campaign financing, but in B.C. the Christy Clark government is going to extreme lengths to allow the pork barrel to continue,” said Horgan. Legislation introduced today by Horgan would ban corporate and union donations, taking big money out of politics. “While New Democrats are working for regular British Columbians, Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals are working for large corporate donations. If you look at the numbers, the BCNDP raises 82 per cent of their money from individuals, whereas the B.C. Liberals rely on corporations for 60 per cent of their money. Clearly the New Democrats work for British Columbians, but it makes you wonder who the Clark government is really working for. “It’s past time that we took action to restore faith in our political system, and to ensure that British Columbians are at the heart of that political system. This bill takes the essential first steps.”

    Christy ClarkEarly this morning in Langford, Const. Sarah Beckett was on duty when her police cruiser was involved in a collision with a truck. Despite the best efforts of first responders on the scene, they were unable to save her. My thoughts are with Const. Beckett's colleagues in the RCMP, and especially with her husband and her two young children. Nothing anyone can say will ease their pain during such a dark time. In the years to come, I hope they will take comfort in the knowledge that their mother was a hero. Each and every day, police officers put themselves in harm's way to keep the rest of us safe. We should all take the opportunity to thank them more often.

    Christy ClarkI want to offer my congratulations to Brad Wall on his re-election. Brad is a ferocious champion of Saskatchewan. He has earned the confidence of his voters several times, and continues to reward their trust in him. Under his leadership, Saskatchewan has transformed into one of Canada's most important economic drivers and an important partner for B.C. I've enjoyed working with Brad on breaking down trade barriers, increasing labour mobility, and look forward to continuing to work with him as strong Western voices helping to build a stronger, more prosperous Canada.

    Lana PophamFrom my colleague George Heyman: We were honoured to meet so many residents of Hullcar Valley as well as Spallumcheen Township and Splatsin First Nation councillors today. The issue of nitrates contaminating the water is serious and the government's response that they need more 'study' is no comfort. People want action taken now - levels are already 30% higher than Canada's drinking water guideline. The area media have been very interested in this story and Lana Popham, Scott Fraser, and I will continue tomorrow the government for accountability when the legislature resumes next week.

    Lana PophamHeading out bright and early tomorrow morning with my colleagues MLA Scott Fraser and MLA George Heyman to visit Hullcar and Splatsin residents to discuss high nitrate levels in the local aquifers. Christy Clark and her government have known about the problem for two years, but they have failed to take action. Instead, they stood by while nitrate levels rose. Today, nitrate levels are more than 30 per cent above the guideline for Canadian drinking water quality.
