    Gary GoodyearThis afternoon, MP Mark Adler and I toured Plitron Manufacturing Inc. in York Centre. We had a chance to see first-hand what a federal investment of more than $47,000, through the CME SMART Prosperity Now program, was able to do for the company. Plitron used the funding to install automated taping, winding and testing equipment for current transformers. This has enabled high-quality, high-efficiency production and the company’s expansion to markets in the United States. The company also received more than $10,000, through the YLF Achieving Innovation and Manufacturing Excellence (AIME) Global initiative, to train employees on new software, lean management principles and project management. I’m pleased to see this southern Ontario-based company has invested in new technology and employee training to ensure that it can compete in global markets. Our Government recognizes that this is becoming increasingly important for manufacturers to succeed in today’s economy.

    Jim PrenticeToday’s revelations of inappropriate travel expenses from the former Premier are unacceptable. Albertans I’ve spoken with over the course of my campaign are reacting the same way I am. It angers me - and it angers them - to hear that this kind of behaviour was conducted by someone in public office. I was not part of the previous government and like other taxpaying Albertans I have watched with dismay and disappointment as the bond of trust between the people of Alberta and their government has eroded. That bond must be repaired. Albertans do not need excuses from those who were at the table when these decisions were made, they need new leadership and a government that will hold themselves to the highest ethical standard. I have been clear over the course of my campaign that under my leadership we will restore public trust and improve accountability by putting strong rules in place, and enforcing them with discipline.” There is no room in government for the blatant abuse of taxpayer dollars, and if public officials fail to observe this the RCMP should be called to investigate and these abuses must be met with the full force of the law.

    Blaine CalkinsNews Release For Immediate Release MP Calkins Thanks First Responders in Henners Point Fire July 29, 2014 – Ponoka, Alberta – Three families in the City of Lacombe lost their homes in a fire early this morning. The fire started in one home and quickly spread to the other two. According to the information we have at this time, all three homes are considered to be a “total loss” with an early estimate of 3 million dollars in damage. Due to the efforts of quick-thinking neighbours and first responders, no one was hurt in the blaze and no other homes were lost. In times like these we are reminded that while “things” can be replaced, our loved ones cannot. When I arrived at the location of the blaze everything appeared to be in control with first responders, Red Cross and ATCO on the scene providing their very best in a difficult situation. I would also like to extend my personal thanks to the City of Lacombe Fire Department, Ambulance and Police as well as crews from Clive, Bentley and Blackfalds who worked hard in the early morning hours today. I have no doubt that Lacombe and area residents will do what they can to support these families in their time of need. Please stay tuned to local media to find out how you can help. - 30 - Contacts Wetaskiwin Constituency Office 403.783.5530

    Jim PrenticeOne of my priorities that I have spoken about from the beginning of my campaign is the need to restore the bond of trust between Albertans and their elected officials, and for government to be transparent and accountable. I have been clear that if I am elected leader of the PC party and Premier, I am committed to a full review of all government appointments. Teachers and doctors have been asked to adhere to a wage freeze because of budgetary pressures. I do not support lifting a wage freeze for government management after just over one year, without a comprehensive review of government appointments. Any government I lead will always act in the best interests of tax paying Albertans, and would reinstate the legislated management salary freeze until a full review is complete.

    Julian FantinoI had a great day in Hamilton last week, where I had the honour of presenting the Arctic Star medal to Second World War Veteran, James William Galloway, on the occasion of his 90th birthday. My friend and colleague, David Sweet, Member of Parliament for Ancaster–Dundas–Flamborough–Westdale, also took part in the celebration. Earlier in the day, David and I hosted a Veterans stakeholder round-table where we had an excellent dialogue with Veterans from the Royal Canadian Legion and my old friend and colleague, Honourary Lt. Colonel Murray Faulkner.

    Joan CrockattThe end of Ramadan has arrived! Thank-you to my Muslim friends for their cards marking the end of this holy month. My family and I would also like to extend our warmest greetings to you and to Muslims all across Canada who are gathering tonight to celebrate Eid al-Fitr. Over the next three days, you'll celebrate the Feast of the Breaking of the Fast to give thanks for the blessings you've acquired over the past month of fasting. You'll also give alms to those who are less fortunate. It's worth saying that Canada is home to more than one million Muslims, many of whom live right here in Calgary Centre and area very positive force in our city. Canada’s multiculturalism is world renowned, it sets us apart from all other countries and is something about which we can all be proud. From my family to yours, best wishes for health and happiness at the end of Ramadan. ??? ????? http://www.joancrockatt.ca/?p=4005

    Bruce StantonLast week, the Honourable Rona Ambrose, Minister of Health, launched a series of online public consultations on proposed changes that will improve the way nutrition information is presented on labels. The proposed changes are to the format of the Nutrition Facts table, the list of ingredients, the list of nutrients that must appear in the table, and to the Daily Values. It also includes changing how ingredients are listed, including grouping sugars together, so parents and consumers have a clearer picture of how much sugar is added to the food and the label is easier to read. Finally, another key proposal is to provide guidelines to industry to make the serving sizes displayed in the Nutrition Facts table more consistent among similar products. The overall goal of the proposed changes is to provide Canadians with the nutrition information they need to make informed decisions about the foods they buy and prepare for themselves and their families. These consultations are part of a broader commitment made by the Government of Canada during the 2013 Speech from the Throne to consult with Canadians on how to improve the way nutrition information is presented on food labels. The consultations will run for 60 days, from July 14 to September 11, 2014, please see Health Canada's website at: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ahc-asc/minist/messages/_2014/2014_07_14-eng.php

The funding was used to improve and replace several components of the outdoor pool, including the pool tank and filtration system. This project also included the redevelopment of the pool building, and the creation of additional change rooms and public space.

    Jason KenneyEid Mubarak to all those celebrating the end of Ramadan! “Today, Muslims will celebrate Eid al-Fitr. It is known as the Festival of the Breaking of the Fast to mark the end of Ramadan, a month-long spiritual journey of fasting and prayer. “Eid al-Fitr brings followers of Islam together in a spirit of gratitude and harmony. In Canada and around the world, Muslims will offer congregational prayers, make charitable donations, visit friends and family, and enjoy festive meals. “As Minister for Multiculturalism, I encourage all Canadians to reflect on the many contributions that Canadian Muslims have made to our country, and I extend my best wishes for a happy and peaceful Eid al-Fitr to all Canadian Muslims. “Eid Mubarak. Eid Sa‘?d.” « Aujourd'hui, les musulmans célébreront l’Aïd al-Fitr. Il s’agit de la fête de la rupture du jeûne qui marque la fin du ramadan, un cheminement spirituel de jeûne et de prières qui dure un mois. « L’Aïd al-Fitr rassemble les adeptes de l’islam dans un esprit de gratitude et d’harmonie. Au Canada et partout dans le monde, les musulmans prononceront des prières en communauté, feront des dons de bienfaisance, rendront visite à leur famille et leurs amis et partageront des repas festifs. « En tant que ministre du Multiculturalisme, j’encourage tous les Canadiens à réfléchir aux nombreuses contributions apportées au Canada par la communauté musulmane, et je souhaite à tous les Canadiens de confession musulmane une fête de l’Aïd al-Fitr remplie de joie et de paix. « Aïd Moubarak. Aïd Saïd. »
