North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice to speak Thursday on Hospital issues for Rotary Club luncheon

Prince Rupert Rotary Club members will hear some first hand accounts from North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice on the current situation at Prince Rupert Hospital tomorrow.  

That as the MLA and Parliamentary Secretary for Rural Health appears as a guest at the Rotary Club Luncheon at the Highliner Inn, the event  set for a Noon Hour start at the downtown hotel.

Ms. Rice's appearance at the Rotary forum comes amidst a stressful two weeks for Prince Rupert and area residents, that following nine closures for the Emergency Room Facility in the city since March 15th.

The most recent one currently taking place today, with the PRRH ER closed from 8AM to 5PM.

Yesterday, the MLA hosted Health Minister Adrian Dix in the community, the Minister who was in the Northwest in the Terrace area, came to the city to hear from local health workers and administrators .

The Rotary Club shared their news of their Luncheon guest through their social media stream this morning.

The public can attend Rotary functions, though if interested in learning more about the current situation,  you will have to pay 23 dollars in this instance, part of the admission for the luncheon event to hear the MLA's update for the local service club.

  1. If Jennifer Rice was (lol) ‘influential’, our emergency rooms wouldn’t be closed.
