Happy New Year!

I’d like to wish you all a happy 2018! A sincere thanks to everyone who came to our Holiday Open House December 16th. We had a packed house and it was a pleasure to see all of you come by to share our merriment.

New Full-time Constituency Assistant

I am pleased to welcome our new full-time Constituency Assistant, Thuy Pham, to our office! Thuy is passionate about connecting people to their community, and is knowledgeable of the nearby community resources and programs that you can benefit from.  

Feel free to stop by my office any time throughout the year. My Constituency Assistants are always happy to help with any problems or difficulty you may be having with the provincial government, or to hear your ideas for making our community a better place to live.

Free Public Access Computer

Our constituency office offers a free public access computer! The computer has quick links to Ministry websites, government services, and community resources. All constituents are welcome to drop by during our office hours (Monday to Thursday from 9am to 4pm or on Friday by appointment) to access the computer, necessary for social assistance applications, BC Housing files, resume creation, and so much more. My staff are happy to help with any difficulty.
