BC Green Leader pays tribute to former Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen
BC's Green Leader, also the MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head, rose in the Legislature today to pay tribute to his longtime friend -- former Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen.
Jensen died after a short battle with cancer over the weekend.
Andrew Weaver says he was "profoundly saddened to learn " Jensen's death, calling him an outstanding community champion for his community, and the region:
" In fact every single person in the Capital Regional District will remember the good work of Nils Jensen. And in particular the wisdom and foresight he had to work towards spearheading and championing the raising of the Sooke reservoir which has led to numerous problems being solved about water availability in this region. We collectively owe Nils Jensen a huge thank you for his efforts in that, and also in the community."
Weaver says Jensen will be sorely missed -- but thanks to his contributions, he will never be forgotten.
