    Jason KenneyTragic not only for those who fled, but also for the ancient homelands to which they contributed so much. http://econ.st/1SEFpwi

    Brian JeanI was horrified to learn of the despicable murder of John Ridsdel today. My thoughts are with his family and those still held hostage. I pray for their safe return.

    Earl DreeshenIn Touch with MP Earl Dreeshen Last week in Ottawa saw continued discussion over physician assisted dying legislation, the Supreme Court decision on Metis and non-status Indians and continued scrutiny over the impacts of the budget. This week I am looking forward to spending time in the riding where I will be meeting with several town and city councils, the Red Deer Chamber of Commerce and many other constituents. One of the highlights of the past weekend for me was being in Markerville for the celebration of three important community anniversaries. First, it was the 125th anniversary of the Icelandic Ladies Aid Vonin who have been instrumental in establishing the community of Markerville and growing it over many generations. It was also the 10th anniversary of the Fensala Hall renovation and the 30th season of the Markerville Creamery. I would like to thank the community for inviting me to be a part of all of these celebrations and thank all the volunteers who keep that community so vibrant. It was a great honour to have the Icelandic Ambassador come out for the evening as well. Cost of Paris Last week Prime Minister Trudeau went to New York to sign the Paris Climate Change Agreement and also last week the Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) issued a report outlining the economic and environmental results of the agreement. According to the PBO, on average, Canadian incomes will decline between 1-3%. These findings are in addition to the tax-hikes the Liberals introduced for Canadian families and small businesses. Fighting climate change is serious business and Canadians need to be prepared to have a frank discussion about who pays for it. The Conservative Party is the only party that can be trusted to grow the Canadian economy and protect the environment. Mobile Office Update The next mobile office will be in Carstairs on May 3rd, from 10-2 at Carstairs Family Chiropractic. I would like to thank Dr. Dean for hosting the office. If you are in the area, please feel free to stop in and bring any questions or concerns. Sincerely your Member of Parliament, Earl Dreeshen

    Brian JeanAlberta charities work on the front lines to assist those impacted most by the economic crisis our province is facing. They provide transportation to those who can’t afford to drive. Shelter to those without a home. Meals to those who aren’t able to put food on the tables. All of these services require fuel, electricity and heat and the NDP carbon tax will make all of this much more expensive. Demand for services has never been higher but the NDP refuses to provide carbon tax exemptions for Alberta charities and non-profits. When people need help most, the NDP has made their lives more difficult.

    Rona AmbroseThe news that Abu Sayyaf terrorists have executed John Ridsdel is shocking and saddening. All Canadians held out hope that all the innocent civilians that have been taken hostage would be returned safely. We continue to hope for a resolution to this situation where all other hostages will return safely home to their families. Incidents like this should remind all of us that the threat of terrorism remains very real. We must stand with our allies in solidarity against terrorism, which remains the greatest challenge that the world faces today. On behalf of the Official Opposition, I extend my deepest sympathies to Mr. Ridsdel’s family and loved ones. We cannot begin to understand the pain you are feeling today, and we pray that you find peace with one another as Canadians stand with you.

    David SweetNext week – May 2nd to 6th, 2016 – our Conservative Caucus is holding this year's Iran Accountability Week, which has been held on Parliament Hill for the past few years to draw attention to human rights abuses of minorities in Iran. That makes this official petition to the Parliament of Canada especially timely: http://bit.ly/1WlUMMw Please take a look and consider signing the petition to send a clear message that we need to judge Iran by its actions, not just words.

    Pierre-Hugues BoisvenuMa rencontre avec Martin Gray en 2007 à sa maison à Canne (photo)...je garderai toujours un souvenir mémorable des moments passés avec Martin...j'avais apporté dans mes bagages une douzaine de livres "Au nom de tous les miens" qui appartenaient à des amis et qui désiraient une dédicace de Martin Gray. Patiemment, il les a tous dédicacés avec un message personnel. Quel géant qui aura aussi marqué ma vie et donné un souffle profond et encore plus spirituel dans l'accomplissement de ma mission à défendre les victimes d'actes criminels. Repose en paix Martin...Dieu t'accueillera avec tous les honneurs qu'un homme comme toi mérite.

    Chris WarkentinThe more things change, the more they stay the same. "The party that came to power on a promise of kinder, gentler politics has shown itself perfectly capable of resorting to the hoariest of old-style tactics."

    David AndersonRefugees have been housed in hotels. Language training is inadequate. There are more and more reports of Syrian refugees being forced to access food banks. And there seems to be no support plan for the future. If this program had been less political it would have been far more successful.

    Pierre-Hugues BoisvenuCe matin, j'apprends une triste nouvelle: la mort de Martin Gray, auteur d'Au nom de tous les miens et héros de ma vie et qui a écrit la préface de mon livre. Il est décédé cette nuit à l'âge de de 94 ans. J'ai rencontré en 2007 Martin Gray à sa résidence d'été à Cannes. Notre rencontre a été magique et j'en garderai un souvenir impérissable et émouvant. Mes sympathies à sa femme et ses enfants.
