    Climate change is perhaps the world’s most profound problem. Jack never got to see his climate change bill make it into law. But his important work continues. We hope to see you tomorrow at 3:30pm at the Vancouver Kingsway Community Office (2951 Kingsway at Rupert)

    As Deputy Critic for Citizenship, Immigration & Multiculturalism, I spoke with Global News yesterday about adoptions from the DRC that are being held up by the Canadian government. Helping Canadians unite with their children should be a priority of Canada's immigration system.

    Last night we held a volunteer appreciation celebration at the Vancouver Kingsway Community Office. Volunteers are such an important part of the community - both in the riding and across the country. It was a great opportunity for everyone to come together, and for me to express how much I appreciate all of the support my office receives every year. Thanks to everyone who was able to attend. If there is a picture that you would like a copy of but don't see here, please email don.davies.c1a@parl.gc.ca and we will make sure to send you a copy!

    "The government quietly tabled the report last week, a requirement under the 2011 Canada-Colombia free trade deal, but concluded — as with last year — that "it is not possible to establish a direct link between the (agreement) and the human rights situation in Colombia." NDP trade critic Don Davies says that's because the Harper government didn't look far enough."

    Davies reiterated the NDP's long-held view that the government needs to show more "transparency" on the negotiations. He said there's room for the government to do that without compromising its negotiating position. "The Europeans are actually publishing their investment chapter in their EU-U.S. negotiations, while negotiations are going on," said Davies, who added that U.S. legislators are allowed to read texts of the ongoing Trans-Pacific Partnership trade talks. "We, here in Canada, are still being held in the dark by the Conservatives."

    Announcing the 2014 Winners of the Create Your Canada contest! Every year I hold a contest in Vancouver Kingsway’s High Schools to engage young people in building a better Canada. My Create Your Canada contest challenges students to brainstorm and propose ideas that they feel will make a better Canada. We then choose the best ideas and have them drafted into actual Private Member’s Bills. From there I fly the winners to Ottawa, all expenses paid, to watch me present their Bill in the House of Commons, and give them a tour of Parliament. This is a great way for students to get involved in our community, practice social awareness and participate in our democracy. As always, there was a high caliber of submissions this year. In the end, we selected two winning ideas drafted by three students. Liam Kynaston and Alan Zhou from Gladstone Secondary were chosen for their idea to make it mandatory for all prepackaged foods to have the sugar content prominently labeled on the front of packaged foods. Matthew Ching from Eric Hamber Secondary was selected for his idea to recognize July 8th as Government Awareness Day – a day for Canadians to reflect on our democracy and make their voices heard. I am presently drafting their ideas into Private Member’s Bills, and will be bringing these students to Ottawa to see them introduced into the House of Commons later in May. Thank you to all of the students who entered! Honourable Mentions: Darien Imai (Gladstone), Mary Chung & Judy Gong (Gladstone), Jerome Paredes (Hamber), Alycia Tran (Tupper), Anika Jang (Tupper), Annie Lai & Betty Hung (Windermere)

    This past Saturday I took part in Nootka Elementary School's Carnival Fundraiser. Led by the wonderful Nootka PAC, the school is raising funds to build a new playground. The event was extremely well-organized, with many children’s activities, bake sales, silent auction and games for folks of all ages. I was asked to participate by taking a turn in the dunk tank. Adrian Dix, MLA, and Kerry Jang, City Councillor, both courageously did their shift as well! In the 15 minutes that I was in the tank, I must have been dunked a good 20 times (Nootka students have great aim!). I might add that the water was a little on the cold side! I also got to practice my aim by trying to dunk Vice Principal Diane Martinson (successfully!), who was next up in the dunk tank after me. She was very good spirited, as was Principal Monika Sanft, who also took her turn in the tank. Thanks to everyone who attended the Carnival and contributed to the fundraising efforts of the Nootka PAC. Hope we get to do it again next year!

    In this article I give my thoughts on the TFW program in light of the latest claims of program manipulation: The Harper government has “allowed this program to get completely out of hand and there are abuses and manipulations of this program all over the country,” [Davies] said. “We think that’s primarily a failure of the government, whose job it is to make sure that these immigration programs are being administered properly.”
