Local MLA Reflects On Triumphs And Challenges Of 2013
Lethbridge: As we near the end of the year, Country 95 is reviewing 2013 with a number of
local community leaders.
We start things off with Lethbridge West MLA Greg Weadick, who noted that
the most exciting part of the past 12 months for him, was the provincial
announcement earlier this month, that saw 256-million dollars divided between
the University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge College.
"As Minister of Advanced Education, I was priveleged to start working on
those two projects and to see them come to a culmination, something that will
absolutely chance both of our post-secondaries and our entire community is so
exciting. I'm just absolutely pleased with that." said Weadick.
As for challenges, Weadick acknowledged that consolidating ambulance
dispatch has been a major issue, but noted that Health Minister Fred Horne has
expressed a willingness to work out a compromise that helps both sides.
