In praise of Stephen Fuhr

In recent months, there have been several letters commenting on Stephen Fuhr’s hard work for the people of Kelowna Lake Country, both individually and communally. 

Attention was drawn to several notable achievements, including funding of $46.5 million for UBC Okanagan, $1.8 million for the Rail Trail and  $22 million for Mill Creek flood prevention, to name but a few in a list that adds up to some $150 million.    

I note from the recent announcement that Mr. Fuhr played a significant role in securing federal funding for the Rose Valley water project, which is in the neighbouring Central Okanagan-Similkameen-Nicola constituency.

That an MP who works so hard for his own constituency, as well being chair of an important defence committee and a member of one other in Ottawa, manages to find time to help a community outside his own constituency is truly impressive.

Our community is very fortunate to have him as an MP, and he has undoubtedly earned the right to continue to represent Kelowna Lake Country for another term.
