Riding Update – Week of May 22, 2017
Parliament was on recess this week, allowing me to spend time in the riding.
Last Friday, I visited the new Northern Rockies Museum of Culture and Heritage in Hinton. On Saturday, I attended the Big Horn Rodeo breakfast and parade in Caroline. Later that day, I dropped in for a visit with veterans at the Edson Legion.
On Monday, I spent the day in my Edson office meeting with constituents, including an organization to discuss affordable housing in our riding.
On Tuesday, I had a meeting in Drayton Valley before attending an unveiling celebration for the Brazeau County Solar Project.
On Wednesday, I toured the facilities at Camp He Ho Ha at Lake Isle and met with staff. The camp provides safe and rewarding recreational opportunities to children and adults with physical and mental disabilities. I was quite impressed with the facilities.
After spending the first half of the week in the riding, I flew to Ottawa on Thursday to attend the Conservative Party of Canada’s Leadership Convention over the weekend. Voting for the next leader of the party has been underway and the winner will be announced on Saturday.
I look forward to welcoming the new leader and returning to Parliament next week with a renewed caucus. My next update will be from Parliament as we return from recess for the next couple of weeks before the summer break.
