See this sign on the streets of North Vancouver? It means that MLA Bowinn Ma is nearby and available to chat, no appointment needed.
Come provide her with your comments about the issues that matter to you, ask her questions about what the provincial government is doing, or just say hi and pick up a treat from her basket.
Café MLAs are sometimes scheduled to occur with the Mobile Community Office, but at other times they’re held ad hoc.

The Final Report from the Integrated North Shore Transportation Planning Project is set to be released publicly on September 13, 2018. On behalf of the INSTPP Steering Committee, MLA Ma invites all nominated North Shore municipal candidates to a special briefing on the work of INSTPP.
The recommendations offered through the INSTPP report are the culmination of a large body of work produced in a relatively short timeframe. The work was conducted with a level of inter-agency collaboration that is unprecedented and has been described as second to none. These efforts represent the first time that key public transportation agencies on the North Shore, including seven governments, have been able to collectively establish a comprehensive understanding of the transportation challenges that North Shore communities face, and produce a unified and actionable approach for moving forward as a region.
