In some workplaces in BC, women are still required to wear high heels on the job. This isn't just old-fashioned; in 2017, it's unacceptable.

I agree with Andrew Weaver, MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head and the BC Restaurant & Foodservices Association that this practice needs to stop. Government will take action to do exactly that.

That’s why we announced the Rural Economic Development Strategy. It starts with an immediate $3.6 billion investment to build vital infrastructure – which will create 26,600 jobs.

I love Pixie, but not all pets have a loving home like her. That's why I made my contribution to the SPCA's National Cupcake Day for SPCAs & Humane Societies and I hope you will too at . Proceeds help SPCA shelters and animals most in need.

I'm so proud of what Pink Shirt Day has become over the past decade. Bullying is not a rite of passage or a learning experience that all kids need to go through. Bullying is wrong and it needs to end. Thank you to British Columbians who are coming together today to help make that happen.
This Tuesday, we’ll be delivering our 5th balanced budget. In it, we're going to make sure you can keep more of your hard earned money. Because when the plan is working and government has more money than it needs, I believe it should give that money back to you.
We're lucky to call BC home - and we have a responsibility to protect it for future generations. That's why we're investing $150 million in the Forest Enhancement Society of BC - so they can continue preventing and mitigating wildfires, improving damaged or low valued forests and wildlife habitat, and treating forests to improve greenhouse gas management.

Over the next 10 years, we’re going...

Although we’ve made major progress in opening up new export markets for BC products and reducing our reliance on the US, the softwood lumber dispute is a serious concern. So we're working with the federal government...

Back to Victoria to keep working towards a better future for all British Columbians.

That means more investment in the services we all depend on, more good-paying jobs, keeping the dream of home ownership within reach, and keeping more of your hard-earned money. That's what matters.

And that's what we're working on - every single day.

Our government is standing up and fighting for BC’s forest workers and their families. I announced today that we are preparing to name a special envoy on softwood to the U.S. from British Columbia.

This person will be based at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC with a singular task of advocating for BC’s interests, and making sure BC’s voice, and the voice of BC’s forest workers is being...
