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.

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.
