Today, I was honoured to pay tribute to D-Day veteran Paul Lefaivre in the House of Commons.
Canada’s veterans have served our country with great distinction and we are forever indebted to them.
To all of Canada’s Veterans and today’s men and women in uniform – thank you for your service.
The Liberal government delivered their Fall Economic Update and it confirmed that Canadians are paying the price for their failed plans.
One of my favourite things to do is visit people door-to-door and hear what’s important to folks in our riding of Edmonton Griesbach.
It was a chilly day Saturday, Oct. 15 in Edmonton but our team got a great reception and heard some of the issues that are important to you.
By far, the biggest worry on their minds is the Liberals’ promised carbon tax that will make life costlier for all of us in Canada and have a negligible effect combating greenhouse gases.
One senior citizen I talked to said she feared it could increase costs on her to the point she wouldn’t be able to stay in her home.
I assured her our Conservative Official Opposition would continue to fight that on her behalf and she was very pleased.
Thanks to the volunteers who joined me door knocking and to all the nice residents of Edmonton Griesbach.
As your Member of Parliament, I always want to hear what’s important to you.
I was delighted to stand in the House and take the Liberals to task for their latest folly regarding infrastructure. They want to put all federal-funded projects though a green screen. If a project isn’t deemed green enough it might be gased.
Canadians need jobs not more unnecessary red tape.
I was pleased to host an Economic Roundtable at Concordia University in my riding of Edmonton Griesbach.
This roundtable was an opportunity for me to hear the priorities of local business and community leaders when it comes to growing the economy, creating jobs and ensuring the long-term prosperity of all Canadians.
Roundtable participants agreed that the federal government must do more to support the development of our natural resource sector – including getting Alberta’s oil to wider markets, abandon tax hikes, control spending and streamline inter-provincial trade.
I was pleased to host a roundtable discussion on the future on the Canadian Armed Forces. Participants all had valuable perspectives and insights on the topic. We had a great conversation about the many important issues facing our military and our national security.
It’s important to me that my constituents have the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the Liberal government’s defence policy review to help ensure that it is truly reflective of Canadian values.
Canada needs a robust defence policy that ensures that our men and women in uniform have the support and resources they need to do their job and that our borders are secure.
The Liberal government’s budget is a real disappointment for Canadians who were looking for real action to create jobs and long-term economic prosperity.
The Liberal budget has no plan for jobs, borrows $29.4 billion and raises taxes on hard-working Canadians.
This week, I stood in the House of Commons to reaffirm our Conservative commitment to hard-working Canadians.
When our party was in power, we passed a law to allow workers to have a secret ballot when voting on whether or not to form a union.
We also passed a law that guaranteed more fiscal transparency in union books.
With the proposed Bill C-4, the Liberal government will repeal those good laws.
We believe that this is detrimental to hard-working Canadian union members, and we have heard that from the rank-and-file members themselves.
Check out the video. What do you think about this issue? I would love to hear your opinions.
