    Gail SheaCanada Day is a celebration of all that is great about our country – it honours our past, our present and our future. Our Government is proud to celebrate Canada’s rich history, diverse natural and cultural heritage, strong values and many accomplishments. Canada’s history is filled with notable figures whose legacy has enriched the Canadian and global community. Canada’s men and women in uniform have courageously fought tyranny and evil around the world throughout our history. And, every day, hard-working and generous Canadians from coast to coast to coast contribute to the Canadian experience. The Fathers of Confederation founded our great country with a vision for a united and prosperous Canada, and 148 years later Canada stands on the world stage as a nation strong and free. And, our Government is committed to building a stronger and more prosperous Canada for years to come. That’s why we are helping create jobs and opportunities for all Canadians, while keeping taxes low and balancing the budget. We are helping make our streets and communities safer. We are making historic infrastructure investments in communities across Canada. We are conserving Canada’s rich natural beauty. And, we are protecting and promoting Canadian values of freedom, democracy and the rule of law in Canada and abroad. Canada’s future is bright, and on July 1st, our Government is proud to celebrate Canada – the best country in the world!

    Julian FantinoIt was great to be in Halifax, Nova Scotia, last week to attend the reopening of the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, where I had the opportunity to speak about my experience of coming to Canada as a young Italian immigrant. The event made me truly appreciate how wonderful and welcoming Canada is to newcomers, both past and present. While I was in Halifax, I also had the pleasure to name an Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship in honour of local Naval hero William Hall. I enjoyed meeting many members of his family and his story of bravery and courage is amazing. William Hall is a true Canadian hero. http://bit.ly/1KqK4js I also had the opportunity to announce our Government's support for local first responders across Canada, to provide them with better tools and resources they can use to keep our communities safe. http://bit.ly/1Iq3djY I want to thank all of those who made the trip to Halifax extremely memorable-especially our men and women in uniform who were warm and very welcoming.

    Gail Shea“I am very pleased to announce that this year, Prince Edward Island tuna fishermen will benefit from a nearly 30t increase in Atlantic Bluefin tuna quota. Our Government was successful in advocating for an increase at the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tuna (ICCAT) last fall, as well as securing a 109t transfer from Mexico for another year. I am proud of our Government’s efforts to represent the interests of Island fishermen on the world stage, and this increase will provide economic opportunities for the more than 300 tuna fishermen across the Province. This year’s increase presents an opportunity to deliver on the long-standing commitment to review the current sharing arrangement. Several fishermen and associations are of the view that the shares put in place in 2004 unfairly penalized fishermen that participate in other core fisheries, and that these shares do not maximize the economic opportunities that this fishery has to offer. I have listened to these concerns and have therefore directed DFO officials to engage with fishermen starting this fall in order to begin a comprehensive review of the current sharing arrangement. This review would take into account the evolution of the fishery over the last decade, the need for rationalization, increased science, and the need to maximize economic opportunities for fishermen. This review should be completed before the beginning on the 2016 fishing season.”

    Kellie LeitchReturned yesterday from a trade mission to Texas that focused on supporting Canadian women entrepreneurs as they grow their businesses and create jobs and economic growth benefitting all Canadians. Trade mission delegates took part in the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) National Conference & Business Fair in Austin, Texas, and learned about opportunities for doing business in the United States. We also met with government officials, businesswomen and representatives of businesswomen’s associations from across the United States, as well as Canada and Mexico, to gain insight into how the Government of Canada can assist women entrepreneurs. I was pleased to lead this trade mission to Texas, which has opened new doors of opportunity for the outstanding Canadian businesswomen who participated.

    Kellie LeitchPrime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement on terrorist attacks that occurred in France, Kuwait and Tunisia: “I was both saddened and angered today to learn of the heinous terrorist attacks that occurred in France, Kuwait and Tunisia that claimed the lives of many, and injured others. “On behalf of all Canadians, Laureen and I offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of those lost today and a speedy recovery to those injured. “Canadian agencies have reached out and offered French authorities our full support as they bring the perpetrators of this heinous crime to justice. “We mourn today with France and stand behind our close friend on this dark day. “Canada also strongly condemns the unfolding terrorist attacks in Kuwait and Tunisia that have killed and injured many. Our hearts and prayers are with the families and friends of all victims. “The international jihadist movement has declared war on Canada and the shared values of freedom, democracy and human dignity. “Canada will not sit on the sidelines as this global terrorist group unleashes senseless violence on innocent civilians from Europe to the Middle East. We will continue to protect Canadians, support the international coalition to degrade the jihadist threat, and stand shoulder to shoulder with our allies in defiance of this evil.”

    Julian FantinoOn behalf of Liviana and I, I offer our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families of this senseless crime. Canadians will not tolerate being held hostage in their own communities by thugs and criminals who undermine our security and put our families at risk. After forty years in law enforcement, I know how important it is to hold violent criminals to account for their crimes. It is for these types of violent crimes that our Government passed mandatory minimum sentences for gun crimes, ensuring the perpetrator faces the full force of the law. We are also putting victims’ rights ahead of criminals in our justice system. I want to thank our men and women in uniform who everyday work hard to keep our community safe. We must remain vigilant, however undeterred from living freely in our community. I offer my prayers to the families during this most difficult time. Any individual who can help solve this crime should contact York Regional Police at: 1-905-773-1221, ext. 7865 or Crime Stoppers at: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

    Gail SheaThis past winter’s higher than average seasonal ice accumulation around Prince Edward Island resulted in delays in the lobster openings in several LFAs. I have listened to the requests of our hard-working fishermen over the past few weeks and I am pleased to announce that lobster fishermen in all Gulf LFAs will have an additional four days to fish. This decision was based on several factors including the fact that this is a sensitive time for lobster reproduction and the increased risk of fishing soft shell lobster. This four-day extension strikes the right balance between ensuring we protect our precious resource while allowing our fishermen to get more days out fishing. Our Government has always been there to support our PEI lobster fishermen. Since 2006 we have invested over $60 million in our province’s small craft harbours. Between 2010 and 2014, we have provided more than $11 million to PEI lobster organizations under the Atlantic Lobster Sustainability Measures. Fewer traps and licences have reduced pressure on stocks and improved the viability of the industry for our lobster fishermen in PEI. I am extremely proud of what this Government has delivered for PEI fishermen.
