We are committed to strengthening our democracy here in British Columbia. New Democrats believe that it is time for a system that works for everyone, and we have introduced a suite of new legislation that will achieve just that.
Welcome fellow islanders
It is a great honour to serve the citizens of Saanich North and the Islands as your MLA at the British Columbia Legislature. I look forward to hearing from you about your issues and concerns and working with you to strengthen our communities and build a better BC for everyone. On this website you’ll be able to learn about issues we’ve been working on, find links to provincial and local resources, and check out our calendar of upcoming events.
“This is good news for Paddi and others in this heart wrenching circumstance,” said Holman, “But it’s too bad that this government has to be publicly shamed by the media in order to provide the health care people deserve, particularly our most vulnerable citizens like Paddi. It took a negative news story and the threat of Opposition questions in the legislature on the eve of an election to do the right thing.”
On Feb 9th, Gary Holman, MLA for Saanich North and the Islands, will be hosting a Housing Affordability Forum in order to discuss the Saanich Peninsula Affordable Housing Needs Assessment, unmet housing needs on the peninsula, and the growing housing crisis in the province. “There are over 550 families on the peninsula spending more than 50% of their income on housing and the situation for local First Nations is even more serious,” said Holman, “The issue of housing affordability is a top priority for Peninsula residents and I have some specific suggestions for making progress on this issue.”
