John Horgan sends New Year greeting

MLA for Juan de Fuca John Horgan talks to constituents

  • Dec. 31, 2014 1:00 p.m.

Leader of the Official Opposition John Horgan.

It has been seven months since I became Leader of the Official Opposition and I continue to be humbled by the support from people all across the province, but especially from those in Juan de Fuca. My new responsibilities have taken me to every corner of this spectacular province, but there is really no place like home.

Many issues have emerged over the past year in our area and I have tried my best to have a positive impact. I have met with the CEO of Island Health to push for greater access to healthcare and extended care housing for seniors in Sooke. Lately, I have been working with BC Hydro and local residents to find new sources of electricity in light of study that determined the Jordan River dam is unsafe in the event of a magnitude 9 earthquake.

Know that I will be working with the people of Sooke and all across British Columbia, amplifying your voices in the legislature and where ever my work takes me. I will be steadfast in my determination to find practical solutions to the problems we face in our neighbourhoods and across the province.

I wish you all the very best in the coming year.

John Horgan, MLA

Juan de Fuca
