Around the Community – May 29-June 4

Small look at the events I was able to take part in around the community for the week of May 29-June 4.

Constituent Town Hall

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Town Hall. MP Seamus O’Regan and I were happy to engage in such lively and informative discussion with 82 constituents. Popular topics included GMO policy, Canada Summer Jobs, electoral reform, internet access, and more. I look forward to taking this input with me to Parliament Hill to help me to best represent the community of Kanata-Carleton.


Kanata-Carleton Cultural Festival

This was the first festival of its kind in the riding, and I was happy to participate in the celebration of Kanata-Carleton’s diverse arts and culture community. Having a tent at the event allowed me to witness and share in the lively discussions and presentations. Thank you to everyone who stopped by, and to Councillor Wilkinson for organizing this incredible initiative. I am proud to be a member of such an open and inclusive community.


Door Knocking Bridlewood

It was great to engage with the Bridlewood community by knocking on doors this past weekend. I had a great team with me and together we were able to hear from the community about issues that mattered to them. I was happy to receive great feedback and I want to thank all those who took the time to chat. I will be knocking on more doors throughout the summer and I hope to see you in your neighbourhood soon.


Tim Horton’s Camp Day   

I had the pleasure of serving coffee to celebrate Camp Day at the Tim Horton’s at 4060 Carling Avenue. Grabbing the morning coffee is a ritual for many, and I enjoyed meeting so many people. Having 100% of that day’s coffee and bracelet proceeds going to Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation makes it all the more worthwhile. Last year, Camp Day raised over $13.1 million to provide youth with access to summer camps. I hope that we can beat that goal this year. Thank you to Chris McCluskey, Elisia MacMaster, and Khaled Rashad for hosting me.


Dunrobin Station 66 Pancake Breakfast

I was proud to support the brave local volunteer firefighters of Dunrobin’s Volunteer Fire Station 66 at their recent Pancake Breakfast. It was a beautiful day for the community to gather and celebrate the important role these hardworking men and women play in protecting our community. It was great to see Councillor Eli El-Chantiry sharing in the most important meal of the day! Thank you for a great breakfast, and for all you do for our community.
