Today we commemorate the 73rd anniversary of the Crimean Tatar deportation

Today marks the 73rd anniversary of the Crimean Tatar Deportation.

The same evil ideology is at play in both the Soviet regime’s brutal deportation of an entire nation, and in Vladimir Putin’s unending war against Ukraine.

This Liberal government must do more to stop Liberal aggression.

Did you know that Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world?

May is multiple sclerosis (MS) awareness month.

MS is an unpredictable and often disabling disease of the central nervous system.

This week, I was honoured to be the Conservative champion for the MS Society.

And today my colleagues and I wore carnations to show solidarity with the entire MS community.

Visit the MS Society’s website to learn more about MS and the important work they do to help all those who #LiveWithMS. https://mssociety.ca

Did you know it’s National Volunteer Week?

I’m so grateful to the many volunteers who’ve helped me on my federal and municipal campaigns. And to the dedicated volunteers who continue to help ensure that I stay connected with residents of Edmonton Griesbach.

Having the opportunity to attend a lot of local community events, I also know Edmonton Griesbach is enriched by the tremendous contributions of community-minded volunteers.

This National Volunteer Week, I’d like to thank all those whose hard work makes our community a great place to live, work and play! Happy National Volunteer Week!
