Constituent Letters: My MP is Hard at Work

MY MP IS STILL HARD AT WORK

Just a note to let everyone know that with the suspension of Parliament, my MP, Irene Mathyssen, is still hard at work.

Recently I wrote Mathyssen asking her for help in regards to an EI claim that seemed to never get approval. Within an hour, I recieved both an e-mail and a followup phone call from her office. I also recieved a phone call on the exact day Mathyssen's office had told me they would have some sort of answer.

It's a shame we have politicians such as Stephen Harper, who shut down the Canadian political system. It's a blessing that we have MPs such as Mathyssen who believe in being there for everyday Canadians who depend on our elected members to do their job.
