Riding Update – Week of February 29, 2016
Parliament was down the week of February 29th. During my stay in the riding, I spent a considerable amount of time meeting with constituents in my Edson office on issues varying from the Energy East Pipeline, to coal issues, trade issues, as well as a future plan to design and construct a new hostel facility in Jasper National Park. I also participated in a conference call with the Environment and Sustainable Development Sub-committee to discuss future committee business.
While in the riding, I attended a Town Council meeting in Thorsby, a meeting with community business leaders in Drayton Valley, and our local Yellowhead EDA, AGM.
The week ended promoting the upcoming Farm Safety Week (March 13 – 19). This year, it will emphasize protecting our children from the dangers associated with growing up on a farm. Tune into your local radio station to hear more.
On March 6th I will be headed back to Ottawa where I will meet with various organizations, as well as attend committees and events. This will be a very busy week and I look forward to reporting back to you. If anyone is in Ottawa, please do not hesitate to contact my Hill office and I will be more than pleased to meet with you, organize a tour of Parliament and/or obtain passes for those wishing to attend Question Period.
