Abbotsford-Mission MLA Pam Alexis needs uninterrupted rest after health issue

‘My recovery is going very well, and I am already looking forward to getting back to work’

Abbotsford-Mission MLA Pam Alexis is resting after suffering a “health issue” last week.

While there are no details regarding the severity of the issue, Alexis has released the following statement.

“I want to thank everyone who sent messages of support over the past week. I assure you my staff has passed on every text, email and DM, and they brought me quite a bit of joy and comfort during this time. Thank you for your support, as well as respecting my and my family’s privacy at this time.

“My recovery is going very well, and I am already looking forward to getting back to work. As of this morning, however, my doctors have advised that I am to continue with uninterrupted rest for at least the next three weeks. In that time my team will continue to serve our constituents regarding their questions and concerns in provincial matters. Please do not hesitate to contact them — they are happy to help!

“Finally, I want to thank the doctors at Vancouver General Hospital, the paramedics who ensured my safe travel to VGH, and my fellow MLAs in caucus who sprang to action so quickly. I want to especially thank my colleague and friend Harwinder Sandhu. She did the best possible thing when I said ‘I’m fine’: She refused to listen.”
