MLA Scott Fraser Alberni-Qualicum

We thank you Lord for Scott Fraser and the invaluable work he does in his role of critic for community and rural development. We thank you that you have specifically chosen him for this role and ask that you guide him with wisdom, fairness and effectiveness in all he sets his hand to. We pray that you will help him to discern and understand the unique concerns of those of us who live in small and rural communities; farmers, fishermen and women, foresters and others whose needs may differ from the needs of those in larger cities and communities. Bless him as he labours for us in his position.

In Jesus Name. Amen.
