MLAs Merrifield, Letnick and Stewart's Letter to Minister Dix on long ambulance wait times
November 15, 2022
As Members of the Legislative Assembly that represent residents in Kelowna and surrounding areas, we are writing to you to express our grave concern about B.C. Emergency Health Services’ (BCEHS) decision to reduce the number of ambulances in Kelowna by 30 per cent.

MLA Paton's Letter to Minister Popham on support for farmers to recover from massive flood losses
January 24, 2022

I am writing to you on behalf of a number of farmers who are rightfully concerned about their ability to access financial compensation following the devastating flooding that occurred last November.
