I want to wish everyone in our community a happy Canada Day and a safe summer!
Though the past 16 months have looked very different for our community I was beyond grateful
to see how we came together in the face of adversity and supported each other. As we begin to

This spring, in my role as your Member of Parliament and as Shadow Minister for Health I
remained focused on holding the federal government accountable for providing Canadians with
a clear plan that would allow our country to safely resume normal life. After months of intense

in larger amounts, and businesses and workers being able to access financial support they
need in order to keep their businesses open. Thank you to the thousands of Canadians who
have contacted me to share their concerns about the federal government’s response. I would
not be able to do my job if it were not for the many voices that contact my office and share their

Please know that I continue to be very concerned about the economic situation in Alberta and
the unemployment in our community. As we begin to see our country reopen, Alberta workers
must not be forgotten. You can rest assured that I will be working hard and fighting on your
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance to you or if you have a
concern to share with me.
