Cowichan Valley MLA Bill Routley had successful surgery to deal with a heart condition last week in Victoria, his staff says in Wednesday's release.

"Bill is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery by the middle of March," staffer Doug Morgan notes of the former forest-union boss, and current NDP member who'll finish his first term with the May 14 provincial vote.

"Bill is looking forward to getting back on his feet and returning to serve his constituents as soon as possible. Bill would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery."

Routley will not be doing press interviews during his rest and recovery period, Morgan added.
