I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Canada Day last week.
This summer is looking much different than anyone had expected even a few months ago, with many rituals and traditions being postponed or reconfigured. It’s certainly been a bittersweet time for young people, who are moving onto the next stages of their lives without the rites of passage that would normally have been afforded to them.
I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to speak to many graduating students from the Kenora riding over the past few months. It was also my pleasure to congratulate the cadets from 256, 774, 2072, 270, 645, and 906 Royal Canadian Sea, Army, and Air Cadets on finishing their training year.
Our students are graduating into a very different world than they were expecting, and the coming months and years will undoubtedly present challenges. However, there will also be opportunities for those who are able innovate and seek new ways of doing things. I know that our young people are resilient and uniquely qualified to embrace this changing world.
This has also, of course, been an incredibly difficult time for tourism operators and other business owners reliant on visitors from the U.S. and other parts of Canada. The Liberal government has not done nearly enough to help keep these businesses afloat. Our tourism operators need financial support from the government, which is why I’ve been continuously fighting for grants for the industry.
As always, if there is anything my office can assist you with, or a cause you would like me to take up in Ottawa, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone at 807-468-2170 or by email at email@example.com.
