FIRST DAY BACK TO WORK IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS-WEST BLOCK

January 2019

January 31, 2019

Happy New Year to Everyone! 2019 promises to be an exciting year. During the constituency break, I was able to meet with many constituents and groups that are looking for help from the federal government. I also had a chance to visit the majority of retirement residences in the riding and enjoyed my conversations with seniors. These are always very interesting chats. With the approaching election, things will no doubt begin to heat up. Our candidates met in Ottawa to prepare for the election. We began our sittings in the new chamber in the House of Commons West Block on Parliament Hill.

ENJOYING THE CHRISTMAS SEASON IN OTTAWA

I enjoyed some time back at home in the constituency as we were on our winter recess for Parliament. This month marked a milestone in the history of the Parliament buildings. Centre Block, the main building closed for renovations for ten years. The House of Commons will meet in the newly renovated West Block. I enjoyed celebrating Christmas with my family and friends and it was great to see all of you who came out to my Christmas celebration at the WDM! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedules!

It’s was good to be home for the Remembrance Day Services in our community. Again, this year, I was honoured to lay a wreath on behalf of the Government of Canada at the Sasktel Centre. My colleague, Kellie Leitch, MP Simcoe-Grey was in Saskatoon & I held round table discussions at St. Volodymyr Village & Ilarion Residence speaking about making amendments to the Canada Health Act to allow for more accountability and more choice. I hosted the Saskatoon Sports Hall of Fame & took part in the Four Nations Cup Opening Ceremony. Good informative meetings with constituents and organizations.

October 2018

October 31, 2018

I had a good week in the riding over the Thanksgiving constituency week. I had the chance to get caught up on some paperwork, meet with constituents and attend some events. The time seems to fly when I am home. On a more somber note, I want to extend my condolences to the congregants of Agudas Israel and Shir Chadash synagogues. It is a difficult time for all members of the Jewish faith and humanity as a whole. Ending the month with Halloween and the ghosts and goblins roaming the neighbourhoods!

I visited many of the summer job students that were employed through the Canada Summer Jobs Program. Then off to Halifax for a successful Conservative policy convention with over 3000 delegates. I attended many other community events around town and always enjoy talking to people and listening to all of your concerns.

I had the opportunity to speak in the House on many different Bills. A full schedule with marathon all night voting sessions. My offices were hard at work sending letters to constituents with the help from MANY volunteers! Thanks, I've received great feedback from this mailout and I'm listening to what matters to you and your family. Many constituents visited Ottawa and I gave them a tour of our Parliament building. I held a community BBQ and enjoyed spending time with everyone. Glad to be home for summer. Call me if I can help you with any Federal related issue. Enjoy your summer!

CHINESE COMMUNITY MEETING IN SASKATOON

May 2018

May 31, 2018

I was able to spend some time at home this month and I met with many constituents and community leaders. I enjoy learning about the issues that are important to you. I was delighted to be asked to give some of the students of Inuglak School in Whale Cove a tour of Parliament. It was great fun to see the kids in Ottawa after just meeting them a few weeks ago at their school. Sadly, my colleague Gord Brown passed away. I was left with the feeling that if it can happen to a guy like Gord, it can happen to anyone. If you are going to be in Ottawa, call my office, I'd be happy to show you around!

YOUTH ADVISORY GROUP (2)

April 2018

April 30, 2018

It was with heavy hearts the month began with the tragedy of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. I grew up in Humboldt & my 1st job in broadcasting was as the play by play sportscaster for the Broncos games. I attended the vigil. It was heart-warming to see the outpouring of support from people everywhere. I had another meeting with my Youth Advisory Board. A enthusiastic group with many good ideas. I was honoured to speak at the Circle Drive Alliance Church celebrating Volunteer Appreciation. The Hindu community was so welcoming to me at their spiritual gathering!
