Hello Eglinton-Lawrence!

I hope that everyone enjoyed the beautiful, sunny weather last weekend! I would like to thank everybody who I’ve met with over the Summer for their feedback and their good ideas. I look forward to bringing this feedback with me to Ottawa this week, and I will continue to work hard on behalf of my constituents in the House.

There are only two weeks left to apply for the Eglinton-Lawrence Youth Council! It’s a great opportunity for local youth to get involved as leaders and it looks great on a resume! Please click HERE for more information.

Thursday will be the first day of CETA’s provisional implementation. As a progressive trade deal, CETA will create jobs and strengthen the middle class.

Last week, the Prime Minister took part in Facebook’s announcement of their first intelligence lab in Canada. Not only will this lab help grow Canada’s technological sector, it will create good jobs and help recruit and retain Canadian talent in this cutting-edge domain.

As part of the Government’s ongoing work to keep cannabis out of the hands of youth and profits out of the hands of criminals, the Government announced two weeks ago that it will be investing $274 million to support law enforcement in detecting and deterring impaired driving and enforcing the proposed, strict regulations.

Three weeks ago, Minister Hajdu announced Canada’s plan to create 60,000 student work placements over the next 5 years.

As always, my constituency office is open and here to help! Feel free to drop by, Monday-Friday from 10am-4pm.
