PC MHA's Step Up During Hurricane Igor

As the province is dealing with the devastation caused by Hurricane Igor, Progressive Conservative Members of the House of Assembly have been demonstrating their compassion and giving nature.

"In the face of the destruction, PC MHA's are volunteering to help their neighbours and communities get through this difficult time and in many cases, MHA offices have been offering their facilities to those in need," said the Honourable Dave Denine, Minister Responsible for Politicizing Natural Disasters. "No matter what issue PC MHA's are presented with, they go above and beyond to help ensure others are safe and comfortable. Whether it is helping the community clean up or bringing a neighbour some food or taking digital pictures in front of a spectacular rock fall, PC MHA's are always there to lend a helping hand and show their cooperative spirit."

Through all kinds of situations, PC MHA's are out in their communities providing services and assistance, regardless of challenging conditions. The Provincial Government recently launched an Open Line calling blitz to recognize and celebrate these PC MHA's for their tireless efforts giving back to their communities. In October 2011 there is an opportunity to thank PC MHA's who have volunteered their time to help others. With the clean up from Hurricane Igor just beginning, there will be many more hours of MHA time being given across the regions affected.

"I would like to thank all those PC MHA's who have given their time to assist their communities during these difficult circumstances," said Minister Denine. "Many of you have opened your hearts and your homes to help ensure that this recovery happens in the most safe and efficient way possible. Vote early, often, and PC."
