I am pleased to provide my first accounting to constituents as the new Member of Parliament for Calgary Signal Hill.

On October 19th, the political landscape changed in Canada but in Calgary Signal Hill the residents elected to endorse the Conservative Party of Canada and myself. First, I want to express my thanks and gratitude for the support of confidence that I received. I would like to thank the hundreds of volunteers who worked on our campaign and those who donated personally in so many ways. I also want to express my thanks and good wishes to the other candidates from the riding who sought election especially, Kerry Cundal of the Liberal party, Khalis Ahmed of the New Democrats and Taryn Knorren for the Green party. Being a candidate in a general election requires a lot of hard work, time and money, especially in a campaign as long as this one. Each of the other candidates should be thanked for ensuring voters had a choice in our democratic process.

Your Conservative caucus is working hard to push the government to support pipeline projects like Energy East. We know that projects like this are essential to getting Alberta’s economy back on track. I hope you’ll take a moment to watch this video of my speech on the matter in the House of Commons.
