Happy Canada Day and Howdy!

Dear Constituents:

Happy Canada Day and Howdy!

I hope all of you have an excellent time at Canada Day celebrations and Stampede events. I am looking forward to seeing many of you all at various Stampede events.

Please mark your calendar: Premier’s Stampede Breakfast at McDougall Centre on July 10th 2018 (Tuesday) from 7:00 am to 9:30 am. I along with Premier Notley will be happy to see you!

I am delighted to share that Honourable Minister of Culture and Tourism- Ricardo Miranda came to our riding in May. We met with various community organizations, learned about the various programs in the community and heard about the things that are important to our communities. In addition to some cheque presentations to local organizations, we also honoured various members of faith groups who have positively contributed interfaith efforts in Calgary. I am proud that our government continues to support many initiatives in our constituency.

When I am knocking on doors, I mostly hear about the pipeline. I am proud of the hard work our government and Premier have been doing to get this pipeline built. We met the deadline and are moving forward for the benefit of Albertans and all Canadians. Providing certainty and investment confidence, shovels are in the ground and many Albertans will be back to work.

Our NDP government is proud to be a part of the first pipeline to be built to tide water since the 1950’s. While our commitment to the environment remains a priority, the need to balance our economy and labour is critical for the future of our province. Our government’s commitment to provide and protect vital services such as schools, healthcare and social services is supported by the ability to keep Albertans working and making Alberta a great place to do business.
