MLA Charts Own Path on Budget Vote – Andrew Weaver
Victoria BC – Andrew Weaver, MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head, voted today for Budget 2014 to proceed to the Committee of Supply. While the budget does not contain many of the priorities the BC Green Party is seeking, the tabling of a balanced budget offers a good starting point that Andrew Weaver, as the only BC Green Party MLA, can build on.
“This is certainly not a budget I would have tabled — that is why I continue to raise my concerns. Yet the question for me is this: How can I best represent my constituents? Being an effective MLA is about more than just opposing for the sake of it — it is about being constructive and genuinely willing to work across party lines.” To read more, Please visit Andrew Weaver's Community Page
