    The doctor shortage in BC is reaching crisis levels, particularly in rural BC communities, where emergency rooms are closing their doors certain nights of the week. I asked the Minister of Health what he plans on doing about this shortage.

    Happy Earth Day! I feel so fortunate to live in such a beautiful and diverse area of this province. I hope that everyone has a chance to get outside and enjoy nature in all it's glory today!

    This Heiltsuk woman rocks! I remember the fire that burned down the only grocery store in Bella Bella, Pat was immediately on the phone ordering in food shipments and had a new store up in running in a church basement before the smoke was out. Thanks for including me in your recognition ceremony here in Bella Bella Pat. It's been an honour to be here celebrating you.

    “Expectant mothers in rural B.C. often find themselves having to travel long distances to see doctors, midwives or obstetricians, and for ultrasounds or other basic services that women in larger centres take for granted. If their pregnancy is high risk, those appointments are even more frequent, and the stress and travel time is even greater.” If you live in Bella Bella and want to have a discussion about the challenges of having a baby here, please stop by the Heiltsuk Youth Centre tomorrow at 10:00am. I want to hear from you!

    Get your Buster treats locally in Prince Rupert. Small businesses are crucial to the viability of communities so anything we can do to keep dollars locally spent contributes to that viability. Congrats to this small business owner!

    Rarely, do I agree with newspaper editorial boards but in this one there are elements I agree with. Christy Clark with her newly hired Harper Conservative staff are using the politics of fear and division to get her way. Don't let her. We are better than that. "Repeated court decisions have affirmed that in the absence of treaty agreements, meaningful consultation with First Nations means conducting them in good faith and that means being sensitive to the political authority of elected officials and to the concurrent moral authority of hereditary leaders. Goodwill is going to be of immense importance for orderly future resource development. In that spirit, let’s set aside the politics of confrontation and division and reconvene for a mature, collegial discussion."

    Here's why the people of British Columbia should have a say in the TPP, and not just the Premier and the people she dines with:

    What do people think about this? Are we ready to step up and build the green economy in a bigger way by creating and keeping jobs while lessening our impact on our air, land and water? "It only takes a five-day program for a journeyman electrician to be able to install solar infrastructure," he said. "My story is another example: I'm a steel fabricator, welder, boilermaker, and I didn't require any retraining."

    "It is impossible to know if lead in school drinking water is a problem without a systematic, provide-wide approach to testing," said North Coast NDP MLA Jennifer Rice, the opposition critic for northern and rural health.

    The BC Teacher's Federation (BCTF) is calling on the BC Liberals to back my Bill that would require mandatory testing of drinking water in schools. It's hard to believe that children have been and could still be drinking contaminated water in this Province.

    Please share widely. My Bill would give certainty that children are consuming safe drinking water in schools. There is nothing more fundamental then clean, safe drinking water especially in the developmental years for babies and children.

    In light of the discovery of contaminated drinking water in Kitimat and Prince Rupert schools, I tabled a Private Member's Bill today to make routine water testing in BC schools mandatory. This Bill needs to become law to ensure safe drinking water in schools around the province.

    Recent media reports indicate that the letter sent to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency by NDP Leader John Horgan and my colleague MLA George Heyman regarding the Pacific NorthWest LNG project somehow signifies a shift in our position on LNG. The BC Liberal Party issued a press release creating a false story saying that we sneakily have taken a negative position on LNG which is completely false. Unfortunately the major media outlets bought this spin. Our position has not changed: We support the development of an LNG industry in B.C. New Democrats support building an LNG industry in B.C., and we believe it must be done responsibly. We have outlined what responsible means and the letter simply reiterates the four conditions that we have repeatedly stated must be met in order for us to support LNG projects. That means LNG development must: * Include express guarantees of jobs and training opportunities for British Columbians, * Get a fair return for our resources, * benefit and include First Nations in a meaningful way, * and protect our air, land and water, including living up to B.C.’s climate change commitments. Christy Clark is failing in all of these areas with the Petronas-led Pacific NorthWest LNG project. Christy Clark is giving away the bulk share of revenue return for British Columbia, refuses to guarantee jobs for British Columbians, has taken a divisive approach to First Nations consultation, and completely ignores her own climate change team’s recommendations on reducing emissions.

    We are debating a proposed Bill this afternoon that includes expanding the boundary of Prudhomme Lake Park. I'm trying to figure out how the boundary impacts the utilization of the area. Can someone direct me to the area where the cabins are and where the campsites are? The following Map shows the proposed expansion.

    Prudhomme Lake is a favourite recreation area used by Prince Rupertites and visitors. Tell me about your connection to the area and thoughts about this proposed Bill. Thanks! Bill 15, the Protected Areas of British Columbia Amendment Act will be debated this week. The bill proposes to create, rename and expand some class A parks including expanding Prudomme Lake Park near Prince Rupert by 4.1 hectares. From the bill notes: A 2.2 hectare private land parcel was acquired to resolve an access issue. The acquisition of this parcel ensures that the trails from the campground to the lake are maintained. A small area of foreshore (1.9 hectares) is also being added to the park. The total area of Prudhomme Lake Park will be 9 hectares.

    The Prince Rupert Autism Walk was a success. Though I was not able to be there, I was glad to see so many people out to support the families in our community affected by Autism. Thanks to all the organizers and participants.
