Marco Mendicino

Hello Eglinton-Lawrence!

I hope that everyone enjoyed the beautiful sunny weather on Pride Weekend! I was extremely proud to have marched alongside the Prime Minister in Sunday’s parade, and be part of a government that has recently strengthened laws against discrimination based on gender identity

I will be spending this week between Ottawa and Toronto, as we prepare for a busy Summer ahead in Eglinton-Lawrence. 

Last week,  I was very proud to have announced concrete changes to strengthen the federal correctional system and restrict the use of administrative segregation. For more information, please click HERE

In mid-June, several important bills passed the Senate and are ready to receive Royal Assent. These bills include changes to the Citizenship Act, a repeal of previous legislation that had undermined labour relations in Canada, and a new labour relations regime for the RCMP

On Saturday, I will be hosting my 2nd annual Canada Day BBQ on July 1st from 12pm-3pm at Glen Long Park. Join me for some tasty food and great neighbourhood fun, Please click HERE to let us know you’re coming.

As always, my constituency office is open and here to help! Feel free to drop by, Monday-Friday from 10am-4pm. Please note the office will be closed on Monday, July 3rd, for the statutory holiday.
