MLA's week, March 31-April 3, 2014

A snapshot of some of the talking points from North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice, during this week's proceedings of the Legislature.

The first week of April was another quiet one when it came to appearances from the North Coast MLA in the House or Committee rooms in Victoria.

Through the fourteen sessions of the Legislature in House or Committee work listed for the week of March 31 to April 3, MLA Rice appears in the index for the Legislature week session just two times.

Once during the afternoon session of the House of April 2nd, when she provided a welcome to some visitors from the North coast as well as a short speech on the passing of Adam Moore earlier this year and the prospect of a revival of a Search and Rescue group on the North Coast.

The other a short appearance at a Transportation Committee meeting on April 3rd, where she inquired about the progress of transportation options for Aboriginal women in  communities along Highway 16, as well as with a follow up question regarding the upcoming BC Ferries cuts and the impacts on local communities.

As for committee work, MLA Rice is a member of the Standing Committee on Children and Youth, that Committee however did not meet during the past week.

Our recap of those items, as well as other matters regarding the Week in the Legislature, can be found below:
