We pause today to give thanks for Jessica Bell and her leadership. You have entrusted her with the role of Transit Critic as well as MPP for University Rosedale. Our prayer today is that You would help her as she serves in both roles. Give her great joy as she serves the people of her Electoral District. Help her to find solutions to the challenges faced by her constituents. We also pray that You would use her role in opposition to bring insights and change to Transit in Ontario in general and Toronto in particular. Bless her family and those who work closely with her today. Amen…….
