Roger Harris, the Skeena MLA who lived for many years in Port Clements, suffered a heart attack Wednesday night while playing hockey in Terrace, and is now recovering in hospital.
Mr. Harris is the Minister of State for Forestry Operations, and was on the Charlottes just last December to announce a community forest invitation for Masset. Although the islands are not part of his riding (he represents the region just to the east of us), he has many ties here from his years in Port.
Premier Gordon Campbell said his thoughts and prayers were with Mr. Harris and his family.
“Roger is a man with a strong character, a strong will and a strong body, and I’m confident he will make a full and quick recovery,” he said.
