Canada stands in solidarity with Ukraine | Feb 24, 2022

Together with millions of Canadians and the Ukrainian community in Canada, we condemn Putin’s actions. Putin’s contemptible aggression and invasion of Ukraine is unacceptable. His attack on the Ukrainian people and their democratically elected government is despicable. Conservatives stand ready to defend the rules-based international order against these grievous violations of international law.

Meeting with CASA | Feb 15, 2022

Students are very much the future of our nation. This morning I had an enjoyable and constructive conversation with the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA). We discussed many elements of post-secondary students’ lives and challenges. Mental health support, student loans and grants, accessibility to education for indigenous peoples and international students’ experience here in Canada were some of the main subjects we covered.

Thank you to Duncan Walsh and Kordell Wajtaszek for such a helpful meeting.

Another Carbon Tax Increase | Feb 12, 2022

Just a heads up, the carbon tax will be going up again in April. Prepare your home budget and tax return accordingly. Residents in Ontario can claim the climate action incentive with their income tax return. It probably won’t cover all the costs of the carbon tax as it keeps increasing. You may also qualify for a 10% supplement if you are a resident of a small or rural community. Beginning in July 2022, amounts will be paid on a quarterly basis.

Meeting with Dairy Farmers of Ontario | Feb 1, 2022

On the agenda for my meeting with the Dairy Farmers of Ontario was the lack of clarity on the compensation for dairy farmers promised by the Liberal government as a result of the CUSMA deal, importing illegal US dairy at the border, and the fact that Canadian Dairy should be part of any national school food program! Thank you to Vicky Morrison, John Wynands, Roger Boerse, Erik Tremblay and Heather MacGregor for a productive meeting on dairy!

From the Ground in Ottawa | Feb 1, 2022

Standing with the kids of the freedom convoy in Ottawa.

Amazing to see the support for this predominately peaceful protest about the pandemic mandates and lockdowns. I am glad I was in Ottawa to engage and hear from those involved personally.
