I’m deeply honoured today to be named the Official Opposition critic for Health.
As I step into this new and challenging role, I’m indebted to my colleague, Libby Davies, for her years of passionate advocacy to defend and improve healthcare in Canada. I’m looking forward to working with community groups and healthcare organizations in Victoria and across Canada. Universal public healthcare is a cornerstone of our identity as Canadians and an issue of growing importance to all of us.
There is so much be done: I can’t wait to get to work.
