Parksville-Qualicum MLA suffers heart attack

Parksville-Qualicum MLA Ron Cantelon has suffered a heart attack.

The news was released Friday by Government Caucus chair Gordon Hogg.

In a brief statement, Hogg said Cantelon suffered a heart attack in Victoria earlier in the week and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Hogg said Cantelon is currently receiving excellent care at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, where he is listed in stable condition.

“It’s too early to speculate about when Ron will be able to resume his full schedule,” Hogg said in the statement. “During this time, the family is asking for privacy and our thoughts and prayers and best wishes are with Ron and his family,” Hogg said.
