Cantelon home from the hospital

Parksville-Qualicum MLA Ron Cantelon is out of hospital and resting at home.

Cantelon, who suffered a heart attack at the B.C. legislature last Thursday, had been receiving treatment in Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, where he underwent two procedures, with two stents inserted to assist in his recovery.

Liberal caucus communications spokesperson Craig Heinz said Cantelon is resting comfortably at home in Nanaimo.

“Ron continues to recuperate and no definite date has been set for his return to a full work schedule,” Heinz said. “Ron thanks all those who have sent well-wishes and extends his sincere gratitude to the doctors and nurses.”
