Father, we thank you for MLA Judy Darcy and the experience she has had in the public sector. Thank you for her efforts to seek to improve the quality of life for British Columbians. Continue to encourage her as she seeks to bring about changes that are important to her. May she also find the time to be revitalized and refreshed by her relationships with family and friends. In Christ’s name, Amen……………
Judy Darcy was first elected MLA for New Westminster in 2013, and was re-elected in 2017.
She was appointed British Columbia’s first and Canada’s only Minister of Mental Health and Addictions in July 2017. Judy has committed her career to building strong and vibrant communities, and has earned a reputation as an effective and compassionate leader.
As Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, she has taken urgent action to combat the devastating overdose crisis that is affecting families and communities across the province, including increasing the number of overdose prevention and supervised consumption sites and access to naloxone, and expanding treatment and recovery options. She is also forging ahead with her work to create a seamless and coordinated mental health and addictions system in British Columbia, so people can get the help they need, when they need it.
