Port Clements is joining other communities in raising the issue of rural health care at September’s Union of BC Municipalities conference. Port councillors voted Monday (June 4) to endorse a resolution that calls for the Ministry of Health to look into declining medical services in small communities. “I think it’s really important that we do something to look after the health of our aging population,” said councillor Kazamir Falconbridge. “We want to ensure we still have quality health care even if we only have 300 people.”
