This was the first week of a four week session of the House sitting before the House recesses for Christmas break.  The week was filled with meetings and events.  I attended meetings with our caucus, student organizations, the Canadian Museum Association, and was invited to a presentation by the President of Canadian Medical Association about senior care. 

There were many bills and motions discussed in the House this week including  M-534 calling for an end to child poverty, C-18 on farming regulations, C-27 on employment of veterans in the Public Service, C-44 on changes to CISIS powers, and C-608 which calls for recognition of Day of the Midwife.  I am proud to say that C-608 passed unanimously in the House this week. 

I also had the honour to attend a Brescia Pride Week event this week that highlighted LGBT+ issues in the community.

Next week is shaping up to be another busy week in Ottawa and in London.  As Christmas approaches I get more and more invitations to attend events and meetings.  I try to make it to as many as I can.  It is important to me to meet and talk with constituents.
