NDP leader Horgan makes Vernon stop
John Horgan says he wants to increase his profile in the North Okanagan.
The provincial NDP leader was in Vernon Sunday and Monday as part of a tour of constituencies not represented by his party.
"I wanted to hear directly from the people and what their concerns are," said Horgan, who met with party faithful as well as the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce.
"I want to take that information and make government better."
Among the issues discussed with the chamber was the need for government investment in culture and trails as a way of enhancing communities and economic opportunities such as tourism.
"I hear that governments don't create employment businesses do.But they want to ensure infrastructure (roads, education, health care, culture) are resourced so we can continue to grow and prosper," said Horgan.
