|North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice is hosting an informal meet and greet event|
on Tuesday at the Atlin Terminal picnic area
Residents of Prince Rupert who may have a few questions or comments on local issues for MLA Jennifer Rice will have an opportunity to catch up with their representative at the Legislature next week, as Ms. Rice hosts a lunch hour get together at the Picnic area near the Atlin Terminals.
The Bring Your Own Lunch event is scheduled for Tuesday, August 27th from 12 to 1:30 PM.
As the summer begins to wind down, there are any number of topics that constituents may want to bring with them for the picnic chat.
With the most topical of them for the moment, the BC public school teacher negotiations that are now underway, as well when it comes to education, Prince Rupert residents are still awaiting more updates on the progress towards a long promised new Middle School
Health issues are also a frequent concern for residents, something that City Council has made note of recently as they watch the growing commitment towards the new Mills Memorial hospital in Terrace and seek to ensure that Prince Rupert remains on the radar of the provincial government when it comes to medical services in this community
As well, there are the always popular themes of Ferry transportation to and from the community and more housing resources for those that are in the most need.
Ms. Rice has been on a bit of a tour of the riding of late, most recently catching up with residents in Masset where they joined her for a scoop or two of free ice cream while they chatted about issues of note on Haida Gwaii.
You can follow the MLA's summer travels through her social media feeds of Facebook and twitter.
