I was pleased to host an interfaith roundtable with faith group leaders from our community of Edmonton Griesbach.
Building relationship with community leaders is essential to being a good representative for my constituents.
We had a great conversation on important issues impacting our community including crime, poverty, refugees and interfaith outreaches.
All participants offered valuable ideas and insight. Together we can all help build a healthier and stronger community.
Thanks again to everyone who participated!
My Conservative colleagues and I have met with thousands of everyday Albertans to discuss the jobs crisis in the province.
We’ve heard your stories of how this crisis has impacted you. And, we’ve heard your ideas on how the federal government can help get Albertan back to work.
Today, our Alberta Conservative caucus released the Alberta Jobs Taskforce report that includes practical solutions to help create jobs and grow the economy in Alberta.
Read the full report here.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak in the House during the debate on Wynn’s law.
This legislation will require that prosecutors disclose a bail applicant’s criminal history at a bail hearing.
By closing this loophole in the Criminal Code, this legislation could save lives and increase public safety.
But the Liberals have vowed to vote against this common-sense piece of legislation.
Sign this petition today to tell the Liberal government to support Wynn’s law: https://petitions.parl.gc.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-712
Constable David Wynn was murdered by a career criminal out on bail, whose criminal history wasn’t disclosed at the bail hearing.
Currently, Canada’s Criminal Code doesn’t require the disclosure of a bail applicant’s criminal history.
Wynn’s law would close this loophole.
I’ve already received feedback from hundreds of you that think Wynn’s law is common-sense legislation.
Shamefully, the Liberal government has vowed to defeat this legislation.
If you want to see Wynn’s law passed, send the Liberals a message and sign this e-petition today: https://petitions.parl.gc.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-712

This Christmas season my thoughts are with my constituents of Edmonton Griesbach and all Albertans that have been negatively impacted by the growing jobs crisis.
I’ll continue to urge the Liberal government to deliver real solutions to help get Albertans back to work.
I had the pleasure of continuing the debate on my private member’s bill, Bill C-306 at Second Reading.
The history of 1944 is clear. Josef Stalin signed an order that sent the Crimean Tatars into exile in Central Asia. The Soviet Union tore innocent people from their homes, packed them into cattle cars, and sent them to perish. They were erased from history, denied their language, culture and faith. These events constitute genocide.
After officially declaring the deportations of 1944 a genocide, Ukraine has issued a call to rest of the world to respond.
As close friend, Canada needs to respond to that call. I urge all Members of Parliament to support Bill c-306.
This heartrending video on the 1944 deportation of Crimean Tatars was created by survivors and their descendants in Ukraine.
Today in the House of Commons, my Private Member’s Bill, C-306, the Crimean Tatar Deportation (“Sürgünlik”) Memorial Day Act will be debated. Visit here to see the full text of my bill.
Canada’s formal recognition of this genocidal act will bring Canadians, Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars closer together, and in this spirit I am hoping to have the support of all Members of Parliament.
I’m pleased to receive the support of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress for my Bill, C-306.
