Dear Constituents, an update from my office: 

Emergencies Act 

Over the last week, I’ve received thousands of emails on the invocation of the Emergencies Act. On Monday evening, Liberal and NDP Members voted to keep the Act invoked. My Conservative colleagues voted against the need for Emergencies Act powers. 

On Saturday, I spoke in the House of Commons during the debate. You can watch that here. 

Conservative leader Candice Bergen issued this statement after the vote.  

At the soonest opportunity, Conservatives will be tabling a Motion to revoke the declaration of emergency, in accordance with Section 59 of the Act. 

Disaster Recovery 

With all that has taken place over the last few weeks, I want you to know that I am still focused on securing support for those affected by natural disasters last year. I’ve been continuing dialogue with the Ministers of Infrastructure and Finance to ensure that flood recovery and prevention are funded in Budget 2022 this spring.  

WATCH: We Must Be Ready For The Next Disaster 

I’ve also been pressing the government to finally get the rebuild underway in Lytton. Eight months after the fires, hundreds are still displaced. This is unacceptable and I will not give up until the Village of Lytton is returned to those who made it what it was.
