MP Update - November 10, 2022

Dear Constituents, an update from my office: 

Remembrance Day 

On the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, Canadians pause to remember the brave men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the Canadian Armed Forces. This Friday, November 11, is Remembrance Day and I encourage you and your family to attend the ceremony at your local cenotaph. Lest we forget. 

I also encourage you to check out this video from Veterans’ Affairs Canada, as well as my Remembrance Day message. 

Normally, I attend the ceremony at the Royal Canadian Legion in Mission, however I am committed to joining other communities in our riding to honour our Veterans. That is why this year, I will be attending the ceremony at the Cenotaph in Agassiz. I hope to see many of you there! 

Below, I have included details on Remembrance Day ceremonies across Mission—Matsqui—Fraser Canyon.

In the House 

Last Thursday, the Finance Minister tabled the Fall Economic Statement (FES). For weeks, my Conservative colleagues and I called on the government to rein in spending, cancel their planned tax hikes and bring inflation back under control. Instead, this fiscal update delivered more spending, more taxes and higher inflation.  

Pierre Poilievre, leader of His Majesty’s Opposition, gave a speech in reply to the finance minister highlighting the key failings of the FES. I encourage you to check it out here. 

If you haven’t seen it already, I’d also encourage you to check out my recent video on the government’s plan to increase EI premiums. 

Finally, I’ve included my most recent clips from the House of Commons below. 

Language Committee – French education in BC 

Question Period – Payroll tax hikes 

Petition – Alaskan salmon fisheries 

Question Period – Repeat offenders 

Hearing From You 

In my last email, I asked for your thoughts on the state of small business in our region. Thank you to everyone who took the time to share your feedback. In all, 46 people responded to this survey. It is clear from the responses that small businesses in our riding are facing unprecedented challenges right now. You can find the full results of this survey here. 

You’re My Boss  

Your feedback is valued.  Please do not hesitate to contact my office to voice your concerns or seek assistance with any federal government programs at 604-814-5710 or [email protected]. I also encourage you to follow me on Facebook where I post more frequent updates on my work as your MP. 

Thank you, 

Brad Vis, MP
