Investigation Required | April 27, 2022

Today, we have written a letter to the Commissioner of the RCMP to request they re-open the case on Justin Trudeau and begin a criminal investigation immediately. In a shocking revelation on the floor of the House of Commons yesterday, Justin Trudeau admitted that he never had that permission to receive a $215,000 gift from an applicant engaged in lobbying the government. Yet, the Prime Minister has not been interviewed by the RCMP to answer these questions. 
More to come…

 Young Authors Day | April 21, 2022

Yesterday I was invited to read to Tracy Armstrong’s grades 4 & 5 class at Essex Public School for Young Authors Day. I found a great book to read that resonates with me, someone who once played as a goalie! It’s called “The Best Goalie Ever”!! It’s always good to read things that are fun and relevant.

I hope all the kids I read to yesterday enjoyed the book as much as I enjoyed meeting them and reading to them! Thanks, Tracy and all the kids I met at Essex Public School for a great time. Well done to all!!
