Editor: I want to begin by thanking you for your coverage in Friday's Guardian April 11, 2014.
There are many issues facing all Islanders including issues that affect low-income and vulnerable people. I want to take this opportunity to point out that in addition to the one oral question and two supplementary questions I am allowed to ask twice a week in the house, I do table written questions daily.
As I feel I represent a variety of interests and issues within my district and Islandwide, I have tabled over 100 questions on areas such as; government developing a water policy for P.E.I., ensuring we are enacting the National Building Code, the movement of the propane tanks in Charlottetown, issues with IRAC etc. To date in this session I have submitted 100 questions to all departments.
In addition, I often offer government suggestions on programs, policy and services that would improve the lives of all Islanders such as implementing a pilot basic living income, implementing mental health services for mothers dealing with postpartum depression and many others.
I take my role as an MLA very seriously and although I sit as an Independent Progressive Conservative MLA, I continue to work hard at doing my job each and every day. It is both a pleasure and an honour to serve the public.
