Melanie in the Community

Strong communities are built on collaboration, and I look forward to hearing your ideas, concerns, and visions for our neighbourhoods.

Every month, my office releases an e-newsletter with events in the riding, government highlights, and more! You can sign up for our mailing list on your right and take a look at past releases here.

As well, please click to see videos of me in the media and videos of me speaking in the Legislature.

Lastly, please follow me on Facebook and Twitter! My pages on both platforms get updated frequently. Following me on social media is the best way to stay in touch with what I am up to in BC as Minister of AEST and in Vancouver-Mount Pleasant as your proud MLA!


Here are two recent videos of me:
