Go Canada, go!

Today, the world’s top athletes gather in Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympics and Canada is represented by the very best from coast to coast to coast.

Qualifying to compete in the Olympics takes hard work and dedication. With so much talent in Canada, I know that making it to this milestone is certainly no easy feat.

Congratulations to all of Team Canada’s athletes on this incredible achievement.

And, a special congratulations to Jen Kish from Edmonton Griesbach. As team captain of the first ever Canadian Olympic women’s rugby sevens team, you are making history. Edmontonians and all Canadians are cheering you on.

I wish each and every athlete wearing the maple leaf the very best, as you take on the world’s best.

Your accomplishments are already a source of great pride for Canadians.

Go Canada, go!

Thanks Ottawa for helping Fort McMurray

I was happy to lend a hand today in Ottawa for the BBQ & Bake Sale organized by Lord Elgin, Hotel Indigo and Residence Inn Marriott.

I was joined by my Edmonton MP colleagues Matt Jeneroux, Kelly McCauley and Ziad Aboultaif,

It was a great turnout with lineups around the block. All the proceeds are going to those in the service industry who have lost their jobs and homes in the Fort McMurray forest fires.

We served hamburgers, veggie burgers, sausages and pad Thai non-stop.

Thanks Ottawa for your generous support for Albertans in our time of need. Your generousity is much appreciated by all those who’ve been impacted by the wildfires in and around Fort McMurray.

Edmonton’s providing support to Fort McMurray

Our thoughts and prayers remain with all those affected by the Fort McMurray wildfire.

Last Friday, my colleagues and interim-leader Rona Ambrose joined me for the day on a tour of Fort McMurray wildfire relief centres in Edmonton Griesbach.

We visited Northlands Expo Centre and Edmonton Emergency Relief Services, meeting with many victims and volunteers of this natural disaster.

I was encouraged to see our community rallying together to support those affected by the wildfire. Thank you to all the donors, volunteers and businesses that have stepped up to help. You make us all proud!

May is multiple sclerosis awareness month

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.
