It was a joy for me to be present at the opening of the newly enlarged Hamilton Community Centre. This is a great addition to a wonderful Richmond East neighbourhood. Thank you to all who made it possible. I especially enjoyed the fact that the Legislative channel was playing on the small TV’s on each of the treadmills.
I had the opportunity to represent our government at the July 4th announcement of the partnership between Genome BC and the BC Cancer Foundation. Both organizations are focused on the potential of genomics to improve patient outcomes. Genome BC is funding three applied genomic research projects totaling 9 million so that the clinical tools we do have are better able to treat each patient’s individual cancer. This is good news for patients and their families.
I look forward to the summer opening of the new Nelson Road Interchange which we can all see taking shape in East Richmond. This new infrastructure will redirect container truck traffic off Westminster Highway and directly into the Port via Nelson Road from the Alderbridge Connector - a win for farmers and residents alike.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer with family and friends.
Linda Reid MLA Richmond East and Deputy Speaker
