Did you know that Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world?

May is multiple sclerosis (MS) awareness month.

MS is an unpredictable and often disabling disease of the central nervous system.

This week, I was honoured to be the Conservative champion for the MS Society.

And today my colleagues and I wore carnations to show solidarity with the entire MS community.

Visit the MS Society’s website to learn more about MS and the important work they do to help all those who #LiveWithMS. https://mssociety.ca

Thanks again to all those who attended and contributed to my town hall meeting on supervised injection sites. And a special thank you to the expert panelists.

Robust discussions on supervised injections sites at town hall meeting

An overflowing crowd jammed a Boyle Street Plaza room for my town hall on supervised injection sites. There was great, diverse opinions and respectful listening.

As the Member of Parliament for Edmonton Griesbach, I’m glad to support you in your need to have your opinions heard.

I welcome more comments on this important issue.

Let’s talk supervised injections sites

Safeguarding the health and safety of our community is paramount.

There are four safe injection sites being proposed in Edmonton including one in our community of Edmonton Griesbach.

It’s important that you’re kept informed of the process and that you have the opportunity to voice your views and concerns.

I hope you can join me for my town hall on Thursday, March 30. And, don’t forget to invite your friends and family.

Ukraine is in need of support from Canada

In the face of ongoing Russian military aggression, Liberals have announced minimal measures to help Ukraine. While the extension of Operation UNIFIER is positive, it is the bare minimum.
