On Tuesday, in the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security (SECU), we continued the study on Bill C-83, An Act to amend the Corrections and Conditional Release Act.
On Wednesday, I attended a luncheon featuring a keynote address by Premier Rachel Notley. She spoke of the challenges facing Alberta’s energy industry and explained why every Canadian, whether they work in energy or not, has a direct stake in Alberta’s success. Later that evening, I asked a question during the Emergency Debate on Canada’s Oil and Gas Sector in relation to the jobs losses in Alberta.
On Thursday, I attended the Transportation Committee meeting in the morning and the Public Safety and National Security (SECU) in the afternoon where we went through Bill C-83, clause-by-clause well into the evening. www.ourcommons.ca/Committees/en/SECU.
On Friday, while on House Duty, I asked a question during debate on the Poverty Reduction Act (C-87).
