Libby Davies

May 28, 2009

Libby Davies is the Member of Parliament for Vancouver East, British Columbia.  She is a member of the NDP party, and this will be her fifth term in Parliament.

She is currently an Associate Member on many committees, some of which are the Canadian Heritage; Citizenship and Immigration; and the Finance committee.

She has been extremely proactive in her East Vancouver riding.  She continues to advocate for affordable housing and poverty elimination.  Perhaps her greatest impact in Federal politics has been in the area of drug policy reform.  She would like to see drug laws changed so as not to criminalize those addicted to drugs.

Originally from England she moved to Canada in 1968.  She has one son, and currently lives with her partner, Kimberly Elliott.

Pray that she would know and experience the everlasting and compassionate love of God the Father.  Pray that she would experience God’s heart for East Vancouver and his plans for restoration and healing.
