Stephen P. Roberts

BC Liberal Candidate for Saanich North & the Islands in 2017

Your Balanced Island Voice!

Stephen P. Roberts

On June 18, 2016, Stephen won the nomination to be the BC Liberal candidate for Saanich North and the Islands in the May 2017 provincial election. Stephen came within 163 votes of winning the riding in the 2013 provincial election, and is excited and positive about representing the BC Liberals again in 2017.

Support for Our Community

Local organizations, businesses, and members of the community trust Stephen to be their voice on important community issues affecting healthcare, the environment, and public services. He promotes local businesses tirelessly, in particular as the sponsor for the Small Business Award at the annual Saanich Peninsula Chamber Crystal Awards. Stephen supports artists locally and is a sponsoring partner in SSNAP, the Salt Spring National Art Prize. He also believes strongly in local agriculture and is a founding and ongoing donor to the successful Saltspring Abattoir project.

Standing Up for Seniors

Stephen recognizes that seniors have worked hard to build and maintain our communities. His advocacy work for hospice and our local hospitals is broadly respected. In a recent initiative, Stephen is working to find a community-based solution to better primary care for seniors and the population as a whole. He also is instrumental in highlighting the need for affordable seniors housing options.

Investing in Our Future

Stephen recognizes the need to build our economy and protect our spectacular natural environment. Jobs and workforce training are key, as is affordable housing. That's one reason you'll see so many young people around Stephen, helping ensure he is our next MLA. Young people training to be engineers and marine pilots want the opportunities that come with growing our economy safely. Our government has been recognized by the UN for our carbon tax, and by HM The Queen for the establishment of the Great Bear Rainforest. And while we've been making these smart choices for the environment, BC has the lowest unemployment and best job creation record in Canada.

#PinkShirtPromise Let's show kindness and care to one another. In my meetings and coffee parties, and while out door-knocking today, I wore my pink dress shirt to remind those I met, that we all need to work at treating each other with respect. There's no place for bullying. #PinkShirtDay www.pinkshirtday.ca ... See moreSee less

The Coffee Party---one of the great things about elections! A candidate, friends and neighbours, and a meaningful discussion of issues. I've been to three in the last few days and met some engaged people.
Anyone can get involved. Contact us if you'd like to host one with Stephen and your neighbours. Not a fan of coffee? How about a Wine & Cheese? Get to know your candidate!

Joanne Roberts WilsonI miss Canada's health care system. Here in California we currently pay $995- per month for three healthy individuals and have a $11,800 deductible per person. Only Blue Cross is benefitting from this scheme. I appreciate your diligence in addressing BC resident's needs.

Jan SluggettOne of the greatest health care needs is primary care physicians for every BC resident. Remember the promises from the past? What are the liberals doing to address this problem?

Janey CruiseHas more money gone into health care - not mental health.... I think I would have rather had my premiums stay the same and perhaps have MRI's available in less than a year or a cat scan available in less than 3 months.......just saying...

Fredy BoeseStephen, do you have a graph of MSP premium increases since 1996, and how this announcement reflects against that?

Steve HousserGreat news and just to highlight that the cutting in half of MSP premiums for 2-million British Columbians is on top of the already 2-million British Columbians who pay no MSP at all.

Jane StolleryAnd of course they raised them by 50% in the last few years. Not going to make a difference, sorry.

Dave McKerrellWhat about Site C and LNG and support for kids that age out of care. These guys suck. Throwing out a few candies before the election is such crap.
