Kash Heed will work toward building a dedicated seniors centre
VANCOUVER Vancouver-Fraser candidate Kash Heed announced today that if elected he will work toward establishing secure funding for a dedicated seniors' centre to be built at the Killarney Community Centre.
During his time in office as BC MLA for Vancouver-Fraserview, Ken Johnston secured funding for a seniors' resource centre at the South Vancouver Neighbourhood House. This was completed in 2006. A new seniors' centre will expand on the BC Liberals' longstanding commitment to our seniors, and will provide our ever-growing population with a valuable resource in southeast Vancouver.
"For the last several weeks, I have met with community leaders on this important issue, most notably Keith Jacobson, President of the Killarney Community Centre, and Lorna Gibbs, Chair of the Southeast Vancouver Seniors' Arts and Cultural Centre Society," said Heed, "and having worked on strategic plans for 28 years, I can say that the plan they have presented is solid. I have discussed it with the Premier, who has met with them as well. We are committed to working with the City of Vancouver and the Federal government to get this important project built."
