MLAs back in Victoria on Thursday
The BC Coast MLA is eager to roll up his sleeves and get to work.
Members of the Legislative Assembly return to work in Victoria on Thursday. Powell River-Sunshine Coast MLA Nic Simons says there are a lot of serious issues in BC that need strong leadership.
“There are a lot of important issues that we need to deal with – everything from the restructuring of education funding to the fentanyl crisis and need for a heroin replacement program.”
The first order of business will be the election of a speaker, which will be followed by the throne speech.
It’s expected that the Liberal government will lose the vote on the throne speech, opening the doors for the NDP – Greens to form government.
