Kudos to those involved in the Hypothermic Half Marathon that started and finished in my riding of Edmonton Griesbach, at Highlands Golf Course.
As Member of Parliament, I was glad to bring an official greeting and meet participants and other good folks. Thanks to the major sponsors, organizers and volunteers for this popular event. And, bonus to runners; It was waaaay warmer today than in past years.
On February 5, I was honoured to speak at a fun event at Northlands in Edmonton put on by the Edmonton Chinese Young Leader’s Council (ECYLC) to celebrate the 2016 Lunar New Year – the year of the monkey!
The ECYLC is a not-for-profit that celebrates heritage, inspires leadership and opens opportunities for young people to help create a vibrant Edmonton. There was lots of food, a dragon dance and dance music with a DJ. Kudos to organizers.
Political attendees included Garnett Genuis, Former premier Dave Hancock, Scott McKeen, and MLAs Thomas Dang, Jon Carson, Christopher Nielsen, and Ron Orr.
Today in Question Period, I asked the Liberal Government to tell Edmontonians and Canadians why they voted against the shovel ready, job-creating Energy East pipeline infrastructure project.
Glad to attend the Lunar New Year Carnival at the Chinese Catholic (Mary Help of Christians) Parish in downtown Edmonton. Happy New Year of the Monkey! Great people, entertainment, food and vendors.
