North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice has posted her annual review of the year coming to end, this years look back taking on a range of themes from local infrastructure, to some of the key moments for the NDP government in the last year.

Among those notes, the stepping down of Premier Horgan and the rise to power for new Premier David Eby. 

The preamble to her review of the year that was, making note of a number of challenges for the community, the riding and the province, including the most recent State of Local Emergency related to the City of Prince Rupert's water supply lines

The job of an MLA is a busy one, and this year was no different. In fact, we've had some extra-ordinary circumstances such as floods, fires, atmospheric rivers, COVID, an overdose crisis and most recently, a state of local emergency in Prince Rupert with a water distribution system beyond its useful life.

Of note of the compilation of highlights for the MLA was her trip to celebrate the name change for Dating Giids, the ongoing work of the Connected Coast project and the Health Care forum that Ms. Rice hosted in August allowing for Prince Rupert residents to speak directly to local and regional Northern Health officials.

The full newsletter can be reviewed here, it also includes an archive of selective media stories of her work through the year.

Ms. Rice's staff have also put together a year end slide show presentation for constituents to check out.

A look back at some of the notes from the Legislature for all three of our Northwest MLA's can be explored here.
