I loved showing the Alberni Clayoquot Health Network’s Community Building Youth Futures team around Parliament Hill on Monday. The project aims to develop system wide solutions for youth as they build and act upon plans for their future. Great to see Toni Buston, Jaclyn Haberl, Jordan Higgins and Marcie Dewitt, all doing good work from Bamfield/Anacia to Tofino/Ucluelet to the Alberni Valley. They briefed me on their work creating safe spaces for youth and spoke in support of our work on mental health harm reduction and advocacy for more treatment, recovery, and stabilization beds, as well funding for education and prevention. I was inspired by their energy and commitment and compassion. I’m looking forward to keeping in touch with this wonderful initiative.
