MLA's week, April 27-30, 2015

The last four days at the Legislature provided for a fairly brisk work load for the North Coast MLA, with Jennifer Rice participating in a spirited discussion on health care and a more lengthy exchange on issues related to adoption during an estimates committee session.

As part of our weekly review of events from Victoria, here's our MLA's review of the week just passed.

Ms. Rice was listed four times in the archive of participants for the twelve sessions of the Legislature in the House, or those related to House Committee work listed for the week of April 27-30.

Monday morning she offered up a statement celebrating the success of the Stewart Wallis basketball Tournament at Klemtu on the Central Coast.  ( see Hansard at 13:40 mark)

Later in that same morning session, she posed a number of questions related to Health issues on the North Coast and across the province.

She followed up those notes on Tuesday morning with a follow up observation on the nature of wait times for access to specialists in the province
