I was pleased to host an interfaith roundtable with faith group leaders from our community of Edmonton Griesbach.
Building relationship with community leaders is essential to being a good representative for my constituents.
We had a great conversation on important issues impacting our community including crime, poverty, refugees and interfaith outreaches.
All participants offered valuable ideas and insight. Together we can all help build a healthier and stronger community.
Thanks again to everyone who participated!
My colleague, Rachel Harder and I hosted a Youth Jobs Roundtable at NAIT in Edmonton.
We got important feedback from students and young professionals on today’s job climate. We heard some horror stories about how the economy is hurting youth employment opportunities. But there were also some solid solutions suggested by our roundtable participants including: urging governments to support more paid internships, controlling federal spending and pushing to see carbon taxes stopped.
Thanks to all the participants. Rachel and I really value your opinions and solutions.
Alberta is facing some of the highest job losses in Canada but the Liberal government has not put forward a jobs plan.
Our Conservative caucus launched the Alberta Jobs Taskforce to address the growing jobs crisis in Alberta. We want to hear from everyday Albertans like you. Share your story here.
