Re: "Premier helps celebrate opening of Surrey's new ER," the Now, Oct. 10.
We join with all Surrey residents in welcoming the long awaited expansion of Surrey Memorial Hospital.
Since our election in 2005, we have advocated on behalf of our constituents for dramatic improvements to the hospital. Over that same time, members of our community have expressed their commitment to better hospital services in Surrey. Our combined efforts finally resulted in the Liberal government recognizing the needs of our growing city.
Unfortunately, we were not on hand to celebrate this important opening because, in her characteristically hyper-partisan way, Premier Christy Clark chose not to invite the three NDP Surrey MLAs to share this moment of community pride with our constituents whom we proudly represent.
We are disappointed Clark continues in the partisan tradition of the Liberal Party, instead of governing for all British Columbians.
