Nanaimo By-Election Activity Very Positive

Hello from Helen Shaw, heading to my VPB duty shift in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith Campaign Office. (I’ll have to miss today’s SLCBC Meeting.)
We have a consistent core of 13 Seniors who are phoning, door-knocking, placing signs, and staffing the campaign office, rotating duties on a daily basis.  Plus many younger pups, of course.  We’ve been fortunate to have a number of Ministers dropping by for updates and Q/A sessions, as well as door-knocking. Marc Garneau will visit this afternoon.  Colleagues from Courtenay-Alberni have been very supportive in attending, and North Island-Powell River have jumped in with the phone-banking. I’ve noticed other caller names also, so I’m sure that some of your members have pitched in as well.
Thanks greatly for the assist!
Helen Shaw (Seniors’ Rep.)

Successful LPCBC Biennial Convention and SLCBC AGM

L to R: (unnamed), Ken Halliday, Margaret McDonald, Judy Berg, Doug Hargitt, Carla Qualtrough, Gordie Hogg, Ginny Hasselfield, Rabi Alam Alexander Hyndman

Kelowna was host to the biennial LPCBC convention, November 16, 17 and 18th and to the SLCBC AGM.  Attendance at the AGM was record setting at more that 60 seniors.  The change of age for membership from 65 to 60 could have been a contributing factor but the excellent leadership of the SLCBC Executive under the very able leadership of outgoing President Rabi Alam over the past three yeas has certainly been influential in attracting more seniors to participate in the process of communicating the interests and concerns of seniors into the policy process. Key note speakers were MP for South Surrey and White Rock, Gordie Hogg; and MP for Delta, Honorable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Service and Procurement and Accessibility.

Your incoming Executive:
President: Virginia (Ginny) Hasselfield
Past President:  Rabi Alam
Vice President: TBC – Acting VP: Ken Halliday
Secretary Treasurer:  Margaret McDonald
Policy Chair:  Judy Berg
