Elizabeth May Worked Hard for Her Constituents in Saanich-Gulf Islands
Over the past four years as the MP for Saanich-Gulf Islands, Elizabeth provided powerful and positive leadership - raising concerns over the damaging Omnibus bills and dangerous investment treaties. Elizabeth was the first federal leader to bring attention to the new, quite possibly unconstitutional, anti-terrorist bill (C-51) that appears designed to inhibit Canadian free speech and stifle protest against fossil fuel infrastructure.
As the MP for the constituents of Saanich Gulf Island, Elizabeth:
- Held over 80 public Town Hall meetings where she reports to citizens and listens twice a year in every SGI community.
- Held Teen Town Halls, reaching out to young people and getting a terrific response from students.
- Works diligently on behalf of individual constituents with immigration, pension, and other issues. See the Saanich-Gulf Islands May 2015 newsletter for several examples.
- Initiated the Saanich Peninsula Partnership working for affordable housing on the Peninsula (2013); the Partnership now has tri-council support and is moving forward to work with developers.
- Stopped the closure of the National Centre for Plant Health in North Saanich by convincing the Harper government to reverse their decision, the only place saved from the Harper Administration cuts announced in the Omnibus budget bill C-38 (2012). Elizabeth made this happen by calmly and repeatedly pointing out the logic of separating the plant quarantine facility from mainland agriculture.
