B.C.’s annual municipalities convention to highlight shortages in health care – CBC

Health Minister Adrian Dix to lead session on ‘unprecedented challenges with the health-care system’

Sep 12, 2022

For the first time in three years, municipal politicians from across British Columbia will gather in person this week in Whistler for their annual convention.

“People are really looking forward to reconnecting and being able to do our business face-to-face,” said Laurey-Anne Roodenburg, a Quesnel councillor and president of the Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM).

“It’s important to the province. These are people, your members of council and regional districts … that move your communities forward, who are looking out for their best interests.”

Like all UBCM conventions, delegates will attend a mix of policy sessions where municipalities will trade best practices, debate resolutions lobbying higher levels of government to make changes, and enjoy late-night networking events.
