Way paved for KHAG-NHA meetings

After months of the Northern Health Authority not sending a representative to its meetings, KHAG is trying a new tack – at the NHA’s suggestion.

Kitimat Health Advocacy Group chairman Rob Goffinet explained the NHA had proposed KHAG form a sub-committee that would take the concerns of the full group to the NHA.

He said those meetings “at which Jonathan Cooper and other NHA people would be present to get our concerns,” would take place between those of KHAG – it meets every two months.

Mario Feldhoff pointed out that “the reality, for whatever reasons, is the NHA is not sending representatives to this larger group meeting.”

If KHAG wanted to talk to the NHA about issues brought up at full membership meetings and if a sub-committee was the only way to make that happen, Feldhoff said KHAG should go along.

The motion having been passed unanimously, KHAG then selected Goffinet, Feldhoff, Margaret Warcup from the Child Development Centre, Mary Monteiro of the Commission for People with Disabilities  and Joanne Monaghan as members with Luella Froess as alternate.


Monaghan and Feldhoff would be on the sub-committee as individuals, not as mayor and city councillor respectively.
