Global Climate Strike
This Friday we will see youth and adults around the world take part in a Global Climate Strike. This will mark a moment in history where our fears of the future and our hope for change merge together in a united cry. These precious hours where people will unite will be a chance for many to use their voice to communicate with leaders around the world, and for others to stand in support of those voices.

I have been an environmentalist and an ardent food security champion most of my life. What has fuelled my work has been my deep belief that climate change will affect our food systems around the globe and my time and effort should be spent trying as hard as I can to support a sustainable food system here in B.C. in order to create some resiliency.  It’s not hard to see that agriculture is already being affected around the globe. Soils are eroding due to drought and misuse, crops are failing because of changing weather patterns, pests are migrating and threatening new areas of food production, and food insecurity is on the rise.

Alex and Jo Campbell Centre for Wellness and Health at Camosun College Interurban
This September I had the honour of officially opening the new Alex and Jo Campbell Centre for Wellness and Health at Camosun College Interurban as the MLA for Saanich South. I then stood shoulder-to-shoulder with an incredible team of visionary ribbon-cutters. I was so proud to be a part of it. The day also served as a great reminder to me of why it’s so important to believe in and support British Columbians all across our province.
