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.

Kudos to A&W Canada for hosting Burgers to Beat MS on Aug. 25, 2016 – a fun fundraiser with proceeds going to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
One dollar from every Teen Burger sold will be donated to help beat this unpredictable and disabling disease.
It was a pleasure to serve at the White Oaks Square A&W on the north side of Edmonton where I met the friendly staff, several dedicated MS Society volunteers and staff and a lot of very nice customers.
It was nice to see support from legendary Oiler Dave Semenko and from several folks who parked their classic cars around the restaurant that was famous for its car hop service.
I had a chance to have a good conversation with a young woman who is living with MS and is leading a thoroughly active life despite it.
Seeking a cure for MS is especially important to me since I lost a very dear friend in June 2015 who’d been living with the disease. My friend Ted Marianix was only 70.
Thanks to everyone for supporting this fine charity fundraiser.
Today, I was honoured to participate in the carnation pinning event on Parliament Hill and give my statement in the House of Commons to recognize the start of multiple sclerosis (MS) awareness month in Canada.
MS is an unpredictable and often disabling disease that impacts many Canadians. Please join #TeamFight to help #endMS in our lifetime.
