Quotes

"by the time the election rolls around in the fall of 2015, i will have served the riding of okanagan-shuswap for almost ten years after speaking with my family and close friends, i have decided not to seek re-election in 2015. this has been a difficult decision for me but at this point in my life i believe it is time to move on and spend time in the beautiful okanagan-shuswap that i love" says Mayes
"I believe the chances are very good (of its getting approval)," says Mayes. "this bill was brought forward by one of my colleagues, but he was promoted as a parliamentarly secretary and they're not allowed to bring private members bills forward, so he asked me if i would do it."
