Marco Mendicino

Hello Eglinton-Lawrence!

I hope that everyone who came to Sunday’s Town Hall on Community Safety which I co-hosted with Councillor Greb found it to be helpful. After a busy week in the riding re-connecting with constituents, I will be back in Ottawa this week. 

Nominations are now closed for our Canada 150 Exemplary Canadian Awards. Please stay tuned for more details about when the list of recipients will be unveiled in December.

On November 20th, COP23 wrapped up in Bonn, Germany. Among the landmark initiatives championed by Minister McKenna are the “Powering Past Coal” alliance between Canada and the UK, a movement to reduce reliance on coal-generated electricity.

Canada is a trading nation. On November 10th, Minister Champagne indicated that significant progress has been made in towards a Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Harassment and sexual violence in any workplace is unacceptable and wrong. On November 7th, Minstr Hajdu announced an updated proposed framework on how these issues are to be addressed in federally regulated workplaces.

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