Part 1 Reflections

The first leg of my tour of Kootenay Columbia began in Creston and the East shore of Kootenay Lake on route to Kaslo for the first night.


We had some good discussions about the lack of a contract for our Border Security Officers and the need for a new Visitor/Interpretive Centre at the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area. Both issues are a high priority for me both personally and

politically!


The smoke over Kootenay lake was an eerie reminder of our current Climate Emergency.

It was great to be back in Nelson, which is like my second home in the Kootenays! I had offices here with BC Parks and the Ministry of Environment when I was Manager for the region and a Constituency Office when I was Member of Parliament.


My stay in this great city wrapped up with a coffee meeting at Oso Negro with some great folks after a visit with Kootenay Coop Radio who do a great job of keeping us informed on local issues. I promised to come back after the federal election is called, which is likely coming soon whether we want it to or not.


Lakeside Park is a great place to have lunch and enjoy one of Nelson’s premier summer attractions - a fine beach on Kootenay Lake’s West Arm.


Lots of good discussions and good information to catch up on so far in the tour. Being a life-long learner, one of the things I like best about being on the campaign trail and being your MP is how much I learn from you. Thank you for that!
