[Transcript]

We get thousands of emails each year into the Saanich North and the Islands constituency office inbox. We’ve always responded to all of those emails within a few hours of receiving them — no auto responders, just constituent-focused service.

It comes from my days working in hospitality and customer service. I had the honour of working at Butchart Gardens. The Gardens have trained tens of thousands of people in our community to deliver world-class service. Values are the foundation of Butchart’s training program, and they are the basis of my commitment to the people of Saanich North and the Islands.

I’m humbled that they have again chosen me to occupy their seat in this chamber. I’m motivated by the trust that they put in me to serve their interests, to speak as their voice and to act as their advocate in this parliament.

As provincewide advocacy goes, there is no single greater issue in our email in-box than the protection of old-growth forests.

The lack of primary care providers tops the lists of local issues. Thousands of seniors in my riding are still unattached.

A close second is transportation — rapid bus transit on the Saanich Peninsula, roads, highways and ferries on the Gulf Islands. I’m thankful to have already had an excellent conversation with the new Minister of Transportation, and I look forward to the good work to come.

However, today I’m asking the powerful voices of Saanich North and the Islands to participate in two public consultations currently underway in our riding. The provincial government wants your input on the Keating Cross Road flyover project, and B.C. Ferries is seeking your input on a new schedule to serve the southern Gulf Islands.

Please have your voice heard. You can find the links to these consultations on our constituency office website, www.saanichnorthandtheislands.com.
