MLA Cantelon convalesces at home

Parksville-Qualicum MLA Ron Cantelon remains at home, recovering from a heart attack he suffered in late October.

There remains no indication of when — or if — Cantelon will return to his duties.

Craig Heinz, the caucus communications chair for the BC Liberal party said Cantelon’s family has reiterated their request to leave him in peace to recover his strength.

“Looks like we’re still status quo with Ron. His wife is asking us to just let the big man rest and recuperate.”

Cantelon was rushed to hospital on Oct. 27 after complaining about feeling ill. He underwent two procedures, with two stents inserted to assist in his recovery.
