After a busy summer in Saskatoon, I am officially back in Ottawa!  Life in Ottawa has started back in full swing with the House starting to sit last Monday.  Since that time I have been busy!  I have given three speeches in the House of Commons, on Bill C-4 (An Act to Amend the Canadian Labour Code) , C-13 (An Act to Amend the Food and Drug Act), and C-2 (An Act to Amend the Tax Act).  Links to the speeches can be found here.  Just scroll to the bottom of the page. As your representative, I have held and will continue to hold the government accountable.

This Friday is the last day to sign the e-petition in support of my Private member's Bill, C-241.  Please click here to sign the petition and support schools across Canada.

Scroll through this newsletter to see what I have been doing these past few weeks; news from Ottawa, as well as some exciting events across the community of Saskatoon-Grasswood.  Once again, it is great to be back in Ottawa to represent Saskatoon-Grasswood.  If you are in the city, please stop by my office to visit.   Or if you need assistance, do not hesitate to stop by the office or give my staff a call.

There has been a long standing tradition in Canada to issue a Commemorative Medal for Canadian Anniversaries as a way to mark the important dates in Canadian history and honour Canadian citizens across the country. The first medal was introduced in 1867 and the tradition has continued with the most recent recognition of Canadians in 1992 with the 125th anniversary commemorative medal.

This year the government has decided it will not issue a medal for Canada's 150th celebrations. Sign the e-petition below to support a commemorative medal for Canada's 150th and to celebrate Canadians across the country.

Working in a constituency office for a Member of Parliament was certainly not on my radar. Life takes some interesting twists and turns along the way. I retired from a teaching career in 2012, after 34 years. While my new job as a constituency assistant is a little different than a teaching position I have always enjoyed helping people and this job allows me to assist many people in our community. Constituents call our office, or drop by, wanting assistance with a variety of concerns. Many of the cases involve immigration, permanent residency, citizenship, visitor’s visas, work permits, study permits, and passports. People often call, wanting an update on their application. I also assist constituents who have questions about CRA, CPP, OAS, and EI.
I am fortunate to work with many hardworking individuals from other constituent offices as well as Kevin’s staff in Saskatoon and in Ottawa. I am fortunate to work with Linda and Laurie in the Saskatoon office (and a supportive) They are very supportive and always willing to lend a helping hand. The rest of the team in Ottawa, with great ideas and expertise that makes my job easier.
In addition to helping constituents, I do whatever I can to support Kevin. We go to a lot of community events. We have enjoyed visiting seniors, celebrating Canada Day, experiencing cultural events, citizenship ceremonies, honouring veterans, acknowledging anniversaries, birthdays, and thanking community members for a job well done. We have met many, wonderful people.
When Kevin is in Ottawa, I attend events on Kevin’s behalf and I really look forward to those opportunities.
Last week, our staff attended a conference in Ottawa. It was an excellent experience. We gained valuable knowledge and learned strategies that we can utilize to support our constituents and Kevin.  I want you to know that we are here to help and we look forward to assisting you.
Drop by for a coffee and a visit. I look forward to meeting you.

An event was held on September 25th honouring the late Mr. Hockey with the renaming of the new bridge as the Gordie Howe Bridge. Mr. Hockey and his wife's ashes were also interred at the Gordie Howe statue, honouring Howe's last wish.

The Royal Saskatchewan Museum was founded in 1906 to preserve and secure objects important to the history of Saskatchewan. The museum was the first in Saskatchewan and the first provincial museum of the prairie provinces. The museum was located in various buildings in Regina until 1953, with the construction of a museum building, marking Saskatchewan's 50th Anniversary in Confederation.
