MLA's Week: May 10-13, 2021

British Columbia's MLA's returned to their daily duties of the Legislature this week, coming back from a two week break, the elected representatives now working up to the May Long Weekend break and another week away from the Chamber.

It was a rather light four days for participation in the proceedings for the three Northwest representatives when it came to in chamber appearances. 

With both North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice and Skeena MLA Ellis Ross participating virtually in the Chamber, taking advantage of Monday speaking spots during the course of the week's sessions.

As for more on the recent week of work from the House, the four days unfolded as follows:


On the week, Ms Rice was  mentioned once in the record for the week in the Legislature from May 10-13

That as the MLA offered up her commentary as part of the debate on a Private Members Bill on the importance of Wild Salmon to the province.

Ms. Rice was also of note in an announcement from Friday celebrating new housing for residents of Lax Kw'alaams

The North Coast MLA is also a member of the Following committees:

Ms. Rice serves as the Government's Parliamentary Secretary for Emergency Preparedness


For our readers from the Terrace-Kitimat region, Skeena MLA Ellis Ross  was mentioned once in the record for the week in the Legislature from May 10-13

The Skeena MLA participated in Monday's discussion on Wild Salmon, offering some of his experience from his time on the Haisla Council.

Mr. Ross is currently the BC Liberal's Opposition Critic for Environment and Climate Change Strategy.

The Skeena MLA is also contesting for the leadership of the BC Liberal Party


For our readers from the Bulkley Valley area, Stikine MLA Nathan Cullen  was not mentioned in the record for the week in the Legislature from May 10-13

He was however part of a roll out for more funding for a number of communities from Terrace east through to the Stikine area and beyond

Mr. Cullen serves as the Government's Minister of State for Lands and Natural Resource Operations 


There is more background on all three Regional MLA's available from our MLA's Week Archive, as well as our constituency archives below:
