Hon. George Heyman, Vancouver-Fairview

Father, thank you for MLA Hon. George Heyman who has passionately advocated for his constituents on matters of education, health, art, and child care. His position as Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy is one of the most challenging at this point in time. Give him courage and understanding to stand by his convictions, working for the people of British Columbia and seeking to educate with regard to this controversial ministry. Do not let him become weary in well doing but give him innovative thought and wisdom. Please bless his family. Amen..……
