In front of City Hall, Mayor Basran, Okanagan Coquihalla MP Dan Albas, and Kelowna Lake Country MP Ron Cannan spoke to members from Pathways Abilities Society, Community Living BC, and the general public.

“I want to assure you that this city council is absolutely committed to continuing to make Kelowna an inclusive and accepting community,” stated Basran. “I am so proud to now read this proclamation and present it to Pathways and everyone who is here this morning.”

Pathways Kelowna helps those in the community with developmental disabilities gain greater independence through encouragement, education, and employment.
