Thank you to the board, staff and volunteers of Kaackamin Childcare Centre for inviting me to say a few words at their Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Kaackamin is funded by Island Health, Health Canada, the First Nations Health Authority, School District 70, Aboriginal Head Start and Childcare BC. The childcare centre is part of the larger Kaackamin Family Development Centre which includes 16 housing units, an admin building, gymnasium, counselling and learning centres, a toddler centre, and play facilities. The toddler centre is a nurturing and safe place for newborns and toddlers up to five years old. A wonderful new addition to this unique treatment centre.

We talked a lot about the opportunities for coordination between all levels of government in to mitigate the effects of climate change and to establish infrastructure and respond to climate disasters. Great to hear her commons sense solutions to being better prepared for the future.

Parsville Rotary Club and Speedy Glass Fundraising

Hats off to the Parksville Rotary Club and Speedy Glass for their amazing fundraising for worthwhile causes through their recycling program. Every Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm, a crew of dedicated volunteers receives and sorts community donations of refundable bottles and cans in Speedy’s parking lot. Over three years, they have raised an astounding $240,000. In January alone, the ring-leaders of this operation, the "Three Amigos" John, Joe and Bill along with their hard-working crew raised $22,000! Thanks to Glen for showing me around when I dropped by to learn more about the program on Saturday.

Alberni Clayoquot Health Network Community Building Youth Futures Team trip to parliament hill

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.
