Last Friday the House of Commons rose for the summer, and is set to return in September. I have had a great experience in Ottawa and in Saskatoon serving the people of Saskatoon Grasswood for the past 8 months. Throughout the session I have been working hard to hold the government accountable through my work as the Deputy Critic for Canadian Heritage and National Historic Sites on the Heritage Committee.  I have been meeting with many community leaders from across the country and in our riding of Saskatoon Grasswood.   A thrill of mine was to introduce my Private Members Bill in the House earlier this year.

In the last week of Parliament two bills were passed, Bill C-210 [An Act to amend the National Anthem (gender)] and Bill C-14 [An Act to Amend the Criminal Code] (regarding assisted dying). For more information on these bills and what I have done to listen and represent my constituents, please visit my website.

My Private Member`s Bill, C-241, an Act to Amend the Excise Tax Act] will be up for its second hour of debate on October 17th. If you haven`t already, please take a moment to sign the petition at:

This summer I will continue to listen to my constituents and their families regarding their concerns with the government, so please do not hesitate to stop by my office, give me a call or drop me an email.

Thank you for your support, and I look forward to returning to the House this fall to be your strong voice in Ottawa.

The site is located in the Tipperary Creek (Wanuskewin) Conservation Area on the South Saskatchewan River, just outside of Saskatoon.  Wanuskewin contains 20 archaeological sites representing nearly 6000 years of cultural history relating to the Northern Plains First Nations peoples.  The area of cultural elements and archaeological materials is so dense it is designated as one site, with evidence of tipi rings, buried campsites, major bison kill sites and medicine wheels.  Many of the findings have been dated as over 4000 years old.  The Heritage park received its status in 1986.
Robin Bellamy (pictured above) has two mobile BBQ units available for use by community groups, charities, and churches free of charge. Each BBQ comes with two folding tables, two propane tanks and two coolers. To use a BBQ please call Robin at 306-230-0045.
