World Children’s Day | Nov 20, 2021

Today is an opportunity for each of us to advocate for, promote, and celebrate children’s rights and take actions that will build a better word for children. This year, we celebrate World Children’s Day in the context of an unprecedented global malnutrition crisis that threatens the health and well-being of the most vulnerable children around the world. Malnutrition rates are rising alarmingly and will continue to hurt children in low-income communities the most. This World Children’s Day, Canada must #InvestInNutrition with an ambitious pledge at #N4G2021 to protect the health and rights of children.

Chaldean League dinner | Nov 18, 2021

I have to say the food was delicious and the conversation covered many issues. The Chaldean people are a hard-working and community-minded group that is contributing in constructive ways in my riding of Essex and in Windsor. MP Genuis has also worked with this group in the Toronto area. We also discussed the persecution many family members are experiencing in Iraq. We will continue to work with our friends in the Chaldean community. Thank you for a wonderful meal and discussion Dr. George Chenno and Adel Salman and all those who attended with them.

The Can Am Indian Friendship | Nov 17, 2021

It was great to see how the Friendship Centre is reaching out to the indigenous community and overcoming the many challenges that occurred through these last months. Many services have gone virtual but they look forward to the day when people will be meeting face-to-face again in the centre. Tina Jacobs (Executive Director) and her staff have been doing a great job of ensuring the centre gets some maintenance while it is not being used for in-person meetings. Thank you, Tina, and team, for your service to the Windsor-Essex area!

A hub of opportunities | Nov 16, 2021

Yesterday, it was a privilege to have Garnett Genuis, MP for Sherwood Park – Fort Saskatchewan and Shadow Minister for International Development with me as we visited several organizations and groups in the Windsor-Essex area. First stop was the Unemployed Help Centre. Thank you to June Muir and Maxine Deleersnyder for a wonderful tour of your multifaceted building where you help so many from our region with such things as food, clothing, education and employment support. The care you take with those you serve and the great staff you employ make it all come together so well.

YQG Left Out as international | Nov 10, 2021

I met with a group of gentlemen today who manage the corporate aviation hanger next to Windsor Airport: Gateway Aviation Windsor. Thank you to Mike Hogan for hosting our meeting and to Kevin Safrance for bringing the issues to our attention. It was an eye-opening meeting and highlighted the fact that Windsor’s airport missing out on its international status is not just impacting the tourism sector but also the management of thousands of jobs and costing the aviation companies more in the process! Gateway Aviation has been given no clear reason why the airport was left out of the list.
