Summer E-update

Happy Summer Everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying our beautiful summer and have had the opportunity to enjoy a little R&R. With August just around the corner, I thought it was a good time to update you on what I have been up to and what’s on tap for the rest of the summer.

Events:

Community Events:  Austin Height’s Daisy Days and the city of Coquitlam’s Canada Day celebrations gave me a wonderful opportunity to speak to dozens of constituents.   Fresh off of the shortened school year, most people wanted to discuss the teachers’ lockout and subsequent strike.  On the whole what I was hearing is that the majority of people want properly funded classrooms and want the government and the teachers to be sitting at the negotiating table figuring out how to make that happen.

Child Care Rally:  In mid July I had the opportunity to speak at a childcare rally in Victoria.  My central message was that a ‘jobs plan, without a childcare plan leaves a significant gap in strengthening our workforce and our economy‘.

2014 BC Summer Games:  Last week, as the Opposition spokesperson on sports, I was invited to join almost 3000 young British Columbian athletes for the opening ceremonies of the 2014 BC Summer Games in beautiful Nanaimo.  I  also had the privilege of presenting medals to young triathletes and to witness their hard work come to fruition.

Upcoming: 
In the coming weeks I will taking my office on the road and will be traveling to Prince Rupert, Terrace and Kitimat.  As the Opposition spokesperson and advocate for local government, I have identified these three communities as communities under severe pressure to adapt and accommodate to growth pressures related to industrial development.  These communities will have the onerous task of having to figure out how to adjust to a 50-100% increase in residents/workers in the next few years.  Imagine your community doubling in size in a just two years – the pressure on finding housing, increased demands on sewer and water services as well as recreational and other infrastructure needs will be severely challenged.

Save the Date:

Terry Fox Run:  I have been working with a great team of community organizers on the Coquitlam Terry Fox Run.  Please join us Sunday, Sept 14 9:15 am registration – Blue Mountain Park – walk, ride, roll or run. 2, 6 or 10 km routes.

Community BBQ: I will be co-hosting a Community Picnic with MP Fin Donnelly on Sunday, Sept 21 Noon-2 at Mundy Park by the picnic tables off Hillcrest.  This is a free, family friendly event, and I hope to see all of you there.

Wishing you all a peaceful, fun summer with your loved ones.

Selina
