MLA: Mable Elmore – Vancouver-Kensington
Tuesday, March 14, 2017
Our God and Father, we bring before you Mable Elmore , MLA for Vancouver-Kensington. We thank you for her Filipino heritage and the blessing of her community to the multi-cultural richness of the province of British Columbia. As she seeks to represent matters of immigration and temporary foreign workers, grant her creative ways to assist them in their integration to Canada. May she grasp your heart for that which would bring hope and joy in building strong communities across our province. We pray for favour upon her in both her personal and professional life. Amen.
Mable Elmore was re-elected as the MLA for Vancouver-Kensington in May 2013. She was first elected in 2009, when she made history by becoming the first MLA of Filipino heritage.
