Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Monday January 23rd is the year of the Dragon! I wish good health and prosperity to all of our friends and family in the Chinese community.

Today, I went out with fellow MLAs Rob Fleming and Jenny Kwan for some main-streeting on Fisgard.

Stand up against hate

Gravestone at the Jewish Cemetery on Cedar Hill Road
On New Year's eve, five gravestones at the Jewish Cemetery on Cedar Hill road were defaced with swastikas and other hateful messages. You can read more about what happened in an article by Jack Knox in today's Times Colonist.

There will be a vigil at 1pm this Sunday, January the 8th, at the cemetery (Fernwood Road and Cedar Hill Road).

I will be there as the MLA for Saanich South to stand with our Jewish friends and show that people of all faiths and backgrounds are opposed to anti-semitism and bigotry. Please join me if you are able to. Rabbi Harry Brechner will speak to the need for respect and inclusivity. This is a good time to pull together as a community.
