    Check out some of my favorite memories of serving our community from back in 2008. After pushing for the first two years to make Queens Park Family Friendly, I succeeded in changing the sitting hours at Queen’s Park and other initiatives that made it easier for MPPs with families to serve in the Ontario Legislature (today those efforts are the inspiration behind the House of Commons’ drive to become more family friendly). Don't forget to RSVP for my upcoming 10th anniversary event at http://bit.ly/FB10yearrsvp

    I enjoyed bringing hockey legend Eric Lindros to Queen's Park this past week to speak about concussions and welcome his support for Rowan's Brad Law! He's an all star person. Very kind, gracious and soft spoken and generous with his time and support for this cause. I am grateful.

    Throwback Thursday! Only after a year and a half in office, I was re-elected with the highest vote total in all of Eastern Ontario, reinforcing the great trust the people of Nepean-Carleton placed in me as a young MPP. Check out these pics from the last 10 years. And yes that's me playing with the puck! Don't forget to RSVP for the 10th Year Anniversary on May 1st! https://www.facebook.com/events/540791412748882/

    Good morning! Today there are two articles speculating on my political future. I want to assure my constituents I am focused on being the member for Nepean-Carleton as I have had the honour and privilege of doing for the past 10 years. We are 2+ years out from a provincial election and the new riding boundaries, although set, have yet to establish riding associations. That said, on May 1st I am holding a 10 year anniversary thank you party for residents of Nepean-Carleton. At that event, not before, I will announce which provincial riding I intend to seek in the 2018 election. Until then, any speculation of whether it is Carleton or Nepean where I run is just that, speculation. As a personal note, making this decision is a difficult one and has been emotional for me like a parent choosing between two children. I love the people and the land I have been fortunate to represent and I remain humbled each day that when the chips were down for the PC Party, the voters in Nepean-Carleton sent me to Queen's Park with massive pluralities in 2006, 2007, 2011 and again in 2014. To explain my intense loyalty to Nepean-Carleton voters you just have to look at what they have given me. They sent me to Queen's Park as the only PC MPP whose riding is contained in a major City, as the youngest parliamentarian in two parliaments, the youngest woman ever elected to my party- federally or provincially, only the second woman to be elected as conservative in Ottawa (Jean Piggot was the other) and the first woman to represent them at Queen's Park. To say I owe them a debt of gratitude is an understatement. Therefore I will respect my voters and I will share with them my decision directly at a public event in person not through secondary sources. And rest assured I will continue represent Nepean-Carleton until 2018 regardless of which riding I choose to run in. So, to my friends, family and constituents you are all invited to share in this news Sunday, May 1 at Cedarhill Golf Course in Barrhaven between 2-4 p.m. I hope to see you there! Many thanks, Lisa MacLeod

    LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO ASSEMBLÉE LÉGISLATIVE DE L’ONTARIO Tuesday 8 December 2015 Mardi 8 décembre 2015 Ms. Lisa MacLeod: It is an honour to be able to rise in debate today, on behalf of the Progressive Conservative caucus and the constituents I represent in Nepean–Carleton and the wonderful city of Ottawa. I would like to commend my colleagues across the entire chamber for taking a stand to say it’s never okay. I want to specifically thank the members who have spoken this afternoon. I’ve been able to listen to the members from Kitchener Centre, Cambridge, Windsor West, Essex, and my colleague from Renfrew–Nipissing–Pembroke. They said some very important names in this assembly, and I think it is worth saying them over and over and over again, so that the women who died in this province at the hands of sexual violence will never be forgotten and will be trailblazers, according to us in this assembly, to do things the right way, to do better. So I am going to name Theresa Vince and Lori Dupont, as my colleagues from the Windsor area mentioned; and Anastasia Kuzyk, Carol Culleton and Nathalie Warmerdam, as my colleague from Renfrew–Nipissing–Pembroke mentioned. Those women are why we’re here today to debate this very important piece of legislation, Bill 132. I congratulate the minister responsible, Ms. MacCharles, as well as my colleagues in this assembly who sat on the select committee. Their work was important, their work was meaningful, and their work will change Ontario. In particular, I would like to say thank you to my colleague, who has defined herself with grace, dignity and foresight throughout this entire process. Laurie Scott, I want to say thank you for representing our caucus the best way you possibly could. In 1993, the only survey in all of Canada that dealt with violence against women was undertaken by Statistics Canada. That one survey in 1993 said that half of the women in our country have suffered either violence or sexual violence. That means half of the women in this assembly have likely also experienced the same thing, and it’s likely, if they haven’t, that they know someone who has. That is a startling statistic and one that is over 20 years old. We must do better, everyone in this assembly, but even more than that, as a province, we must do better, and the template in order to do that is this legislation, Bill 132. I want to talk a little bit more about some of the statistics that I borrowed from CBC, which were published in 2003. It said that of the half of women who have experienced physical or sexual violence, the most vulnerable of those women, the most vulnerable women in Canada, happen to be between the ages of 15 and 24. They’re high school aged, they’re university aged, and they’re the ones who may or may not report being raped, sexually assaulted or abused. It is a group that, of reported incidences, is 42% higher than those of us who are a little bit older. 1650 It also suggested that there are more than 800,000 children in Canada today whose mother or themselves may be victimized. We have over 3,000 women in Canada who stay at homeless shelters to escape abuse. According to a CBC report in 2013, almost 500 women a day—a day—are turned away from a homeless shelter when they are trying to escape abuse. Doesn’t it make you proud in this assembly that today we’re standing up for a piece of legislation that would make it that much easier for a woman who is being abused in her home to leave her abusive spouse or partner? Doesn’t it make you proud that you may save a life and you may actually be able to allow this mother, this woman, to take her children away, and not to a shelter, but maybe give her an opportunity to start her own life? There are other statistics, too, that I saw—and I’ll talk more about the bill—but I wanted to mention this one, because I see the member from Kingston and the Islands here and I think her first private member’s motion was to talk about a call for murdered and missing aboriginal women. I supported her because of some of these changes. I know that it’s now in the forefront; it was on the front page of today’s Ottawa Sun. Many of the women who we’re talking about are aboriginal, and I hope it makes members here proud that we are taking a stand for them as well. They say that for evil to win, it means good people do nothing. For too long, I think, that has been the case. It didn’t really change in this country—I mean, we observe December 6, but, unfortunately, Marc Lépine was not the only man to initiate violence against women. I must say that I was angered—really angered—when I heard about the Jian Ghomeshi allegations. In fact, I made a public statement when I first learned of them. My gut instinct was: “This happened; I can tell,” because a woman does not put herself out there and suggest that she has been violated that way unless she has been, especially when it’s a major figure like that. I gave that woman the benefit of the doubt, and I’m going to recount two very brief examples for you of what I saw. The first was a friend of mine, a man a little bit older than me, who told me to take down my statement. He said, “Jian Ghomeshi is a public figure. You don’t know what you’re dealing with.” I said, “Too bad. I’m not taking it down.” The second was a political adversary—also a male—who decided to deride me and tell me I was wrong: “Jian Ghomeshi is about culture. He couldn’t have done this. You should take that tweet down.” I said, “Absolutely not.” I was angry, as I know every member of this assembly was angry, when they saw that come to light. In fact, because of that incident, it was people like Laurie Scott and Tracy MacCharles and Lisa Gretzky who stood up and said, “It won’t happen anymore—not under our watch. We are going to protect the women in this province”—and I am proud that they did. I think this is one of the finer moments, actually, that I have served in in the last nine and a half years: to watch members from all walks of life, from every political party and from every corner of this province, come together under a campaign and support the work of the government without any politics but what’s best for women. What’s best, as I might say, for young women, too—particularly those on our university campuses and in our high schools—who, as I’ve stated before, according to Stats Canada, are likely the most vulnerable. When I look at this legislation, I see a good action plan. We’re going to strengthen provisions related to sexual violence and harassment in the workplace, on campus, in housing and through the civil claim process. It will strengthen support through hospital-based sexual and domestic violence treatment centres to maintain 24/7 access to excellent, appropriate and timely care. There will be more public education, more front-line training—up-to-date training—tools to identify best practices, and to support compassionate and sensitive responses from law enforcement officers. The list goes on, Speaker. The list here goes on and has responded to a growing demand and a growing need in the province. What we need to do is to be national leaders. And I believe the select committee, through their non-partisan work, was able to achieve that. I think that is going to be something that we need permanency on. The people we need to reach are the people who are not reporting sexual violence, the people who are not escaping from a doomed relationship. We need to not only educate people that it’s not okay to sexually assault someone; we need, also, to educate young women across Ontario that it’s okay to come forward. We need to give them the courage. We need to give them the conviction, because once a woman has been assaulted, once she has been violated, it will change her entire life. And for all of us in this assembly, it is our job to make her life easier. That’s why I’m proud of the work that my colleague Laurie Scott has initiated in response to another issue that we have heard a lot about recently, which is human trafficking. I think that is a critical and meaningful piece of legislation that needs to be included. She had a motion moving that forward, and I think it would be not only relevant, but important that we follow that up. Human trafficking just doesn’t happen on the other side of the world. Human trafficking happens here. Ms. Laurie Scott: Ninety-seven per cent are Canadian-born. Ms. Lisa MacLeod: My colleague Ms. Scott tells me that 97% of the women who are trafficked in Ontario are Canadian-born. Think about who’s vulnerable. I ask members to think about who’s vulnerable. It is those girls between the ages of 15 and 24. I can’t stress enough how important it is for us in this assembly to protect young women. Fifteen to 24: Those are kids in high school. Those are kids in their second year of university. Those are young women who are starting their first jobs. Half of the women in Canada have been either physically or sexually violated. I can’t say those statistics enough, because we have to impress upon ourselves that it could happen to anyone. For us to have this debate today I think signals the fact that we’re taking this seriously. I think it signals the fact that we’re creating awareness. I think it signals the fact that, yes, we’re serious about putting a law forward in order to protect young women. I profoundly hope that when we leave here today, we will not stop talking about this in a serious fashion. I’m looking forward to my colleagues doing a major media event on Thursday. I am looking forward to them drawing attention to this critical issue in the province on sexual violence and harassment, and I’m looking forward to the media allowing us to get that message out, that people are taking this very seriously. But I urge every member here not to stop talking about it when you go home for Christmas, not to stop talking about it when you spend some time with your family and not to stop talking about it when you get to your constituency. In fact, I firmly believe that the work of Tracy MacCharles, Laurie Scott and Lisa Gretzky should be on all of our minds this holiday season as we remind people— 1700 Hon. Tracy MacCharles: And Peggy Sattler. Ms. Lisa MacLeod: —and Peggy Sattler—should be on the minds of all of us this holiday season because we are the best at communicating what happens here to our constituents. We are the best at going into our communities and rallying for causes. We are the best to clearly enunciate why there is a problem and how it can be fixed. I know that all members will do that, and I ask you all to do that for the 50% of Canadian women who have been affected by this, particularly those young women. That breaks my heart. My colleague John Yakabuski, the member from Renfrew–Nipissing–Pembroke, put forward Bill 130, and I would be remiss if I did not call for that to also be passed. While we support this bill, as Progressive Conservatives, we of course always want to see the best bill pass in this assembly, so we will be urging for Mr. Yakabuski’s bill to be supported, and for Ms. Scott’s motion for an anti-human-trafficking task force to be established. We will reinforce probation and parole services in Ontario; restore partner assault response programs back to a 16-week model, notify crown attorneys when offenders refuse to sign their orders, and implement the government’s Domestic Violence Death Review Committee’s risk assessment tool to flag high-risk and repeat offenders. It is never okay—never. I think an important step in the right direction is the campaign that started before this bill is going to be implemented. I’ve seen it. I’ve seen it at restaurants across the province. I’ve seen it in bus shelters. I’ve heard it on the radio. We can’t become—what’s the word where you continue to hear it, but it’s not penetrating anymore? We can’t allow that to happen. We’re going to have to be creative, inventive. We’re going to have to continue to take this across the province. Two places that I find this is very helpful, and I really appreciate the advertisements being part of—I have a 10-year-old daughter. I spend a lot of time at hockey arenas throughout Ottawa. She plays hockey. I wish, when I was a kid, I had the same opportunities to play at the Sensplex. Last weekend, she actually got to play at the Canadian Tire Centre with both the University of Ottawa and Carleton University hockey players. I’m really proud of her. One of the things I like is when I go to the University of Ottawa, which I do every weekend, and Carleton University, which I do every weekend—I feel like I should be paying them a lot of tuition, though I’m not taking any classes, just watching a lot of cold hockey early in the morning. If you go to the bathroom, every single stall, every single one of them, has a “It’s Never Okay” poster. It’s reinforcing to women on our campuses that they do not have to put up with unwanted advances. If there’s one thing I leave you all with today, that’s where I think there needs to be a great deal of resources applied: on university campuses. It’s a place where I feel we need to protect students the most. It’s a place where I believe, when we’re sending our students off to learn, to educate and to be enlightened—I do not want them to be enlightened by being sexually abused. I don’t, and I know no member here wants us to. I know that’s why we’ve got this campaign in place. It’s why I’m proud to support that campaign, and it is why I am so proud to be a colleague of Laurie Scott in our caucus, who I believe has ushered this perfectly through our caucus and our party. As I conclude my remarks, if I may say thank you to three party leaders as well: Ms. Horwath, Mr. Brown and Premier Wynne. Each of them has made it clear that this is something we support. Our leader the other day said that there should be zero tolerance; not only I do agree with it and applaud it, I think that should be the standard that we set here today. With that, I say thank you. I appreciate the opportunity to debate on almost any bill, but on this particular bill, I think it was an honour for me to be part of this debate, and I am just grateful I had that opportunity.

    PC MPP Lisa MacLeod Meets with Indian PM Narendra Modi to discuss Ottawa's Indo Canadian Community Centre Slated to Open in 2017 (New Delhi, India)- Ottawa MPP Lisa MacLeod today met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown and members of the Ontario PC Caucus at the Prime Ministers New Delhi Official Residence. An official photo taken by the Prime Ministers staff is attached. MacLeod took the opportunity to discuss primary education, environmental technology and the Indo Canadian Community Centre which is expected to be built in Manotick, opening in time for Canada's 150th Anniversary in 2017. "The conversation was wide ranging but I wanted to ensure I brought up the Indo Canadian Community Centre which will be a significant investment into Ottawa. I specifically talked about the project, the good work of its President Arvind Chathbar, and welcomed the Prime Minister to visit Ottawa once it opens", said MacLeod. MacLeod and members of the Ontario PC Caucus are on a two week trade mission with the Indo Canadian Chamber of Commerce. MacLeod has attended a major infrastructure conference and met with the Uttar Pradesh State Minister of Prisons already. It is expected that MPP MacLeod will be joined by CanEast Films President, Biju George, who brought the Indian Film "Two Countries" to Ottawa while meeting with film executives in the Kerala State. MPP Lisa MacLeod has paid for this mission in India with personal funds. The Nepean-Carleton constituency is home to a growing and vibrant Indo Canadian Community. -30- For more information please contact Julia Mackenzie 4163256351

    Whew....busy couple of weeks.... Today marks the resumption of the Ontario Legislature, an institution that I have proudly served since 2006. After having been re-elected for a fourth time this past June and recently ending a leadership run for the Ontario PC Party, I want the constituents of Nepean-Carleton and members of my Party to know I intend to honour my commitment to complete this four year mandate and help Christine Elliott form a Progressive Conservative government in 2018. While I appreciated the overwhelming outpouring of encouragement from community leaders and my constituents in Nepean to consider a run for federal Parliament, early last week Joe and I ruled that out as a realistic option for our family. We have been in constant campaign mode for close to five years. Our nine year old daughter Victoria deserves a break from door knocking, phone calls and late night campaign meetings. As MPP for Nepean-Carleton and Ontario PC Treasury Board Critic, I will continue to advocate for choice in childcare, sensible energy policy and a government we can afford. I'm looking forward to a few local projects, too, that can improve and enhance the lives of those I represent. I want to thank all of those in Nepean and in the rest of Ottawa who see me as the natural successor to John Baird. Your belief in me is extremely humbling. -30-

    February 6, 2015 Ottawa, ON An Open Letter From Lisa MacLeod To my dear friends and supporters, My fellow conservatives it is with a heavy heart, but also with a great degree of optimism, that I end my campaign to become Leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party. I will lend my support to my friend and colleague Christine Elliott in her bid to become Leader of our Party and ultimately Premier of Ontario. I will also be bringing my caucus supporters with me to her team. Christine Elliott and I were elected on the same day and we have been seatmates. Our families are friends. We also share the same values and passion for the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party. I believe with the team Christine has built and the positive message she is running on, our great Party will once again lead this province. I’ve said it many times, when our party is at its strongest, Ontario is at its best. We need a Leader who aspires to get our Party and our province back to building, not tearing down our legacies and values. Christine can do that. Over the last week the changes in the political landscape both within the PC Leadership race and in my home riding of Nepean-Carleton have been dramatic and have had a direct impact on me. The decision by Vic Fedeli to leave the PC Leadership race earlier this week and the sudden departure from Parliament by my local MP, my friend John Baird, undeniably altered my own political realities. Throughout the course of the PC Leadership race our team has prided ourselves on running a positive campaign focused on the rich history and bright future of the Ontario PC Party. Together, we spoke about our shared values. We traveled this vast and beautiful province to meet with old friends and make new ones. We urged Progressive Conservatives to ‘Come Back Home’ if they believe in living within their means, while helping those who can’t help themselves; to ‘Come Back Home’ if they believe in the rule of law, safer streets and strong families; and to ‘Come Back Home’ if they believe we need a strong economy to sustain our healthcare and education system. This is something that I will continue to promote. Now, however, it is that same ‘Come Back Home’ message that is being asked of me by my community. As I leave the Ontario PC Leadership race, I will consider running in the federal riding of Nepean in the next general election as it is being strongly urged by my constituents. The City of Ottawa needs a strong champion on Parliament Hill to carry important projects forward, such as the LRT and Canada’s 150th Birthday. These projects will be keys to my decision on whether or not I will run to replace my good friend, John Baird. Over the next few weeks I will meet with my constituents and local conservatives so we can make a decision together on how we will best proceed as a community. In the meantime, I will remain the PC MPP for Nepean-Carleton and will continue to focus my efforts on choice in childcare, gang violence in Ottawa and holding Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals accountable. I want to thank Patrick Brown and Monte McNaughton for continuing to put their names and ideas out there and encourage them to keep raising the profile of our Party. I hope both of them know I admire them and appreciate their genuine desire to bring more people into the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario. I would like to thank my colleague, Vic Fedeli, the Ontario PC Finance critic for his efforts to rebuild our Party and to put Ontario First. I know his decision to end his campaign was not an easy one, nor was it taken lightly. I admire Vic for his ideas and his passion and I am proud to call him a friend. My caucus colleagues, both past and present, as well as former PC Leaders John Tory, Bob Runciman and Tim Hudak, and now Jim Wilson, have all given me opportunities and I will seek their advice as I move forward. Finally, to my campaign team and supporters, I am grateful that you believed in me. Never be ashamed to be a Progressive Conservative and please know that because you have given me your support it is without hesitation that you will always have mine. Yours in conservatism, Lisa MacLeod, MPP Nepean-Carleton

    Everyone, thank you for your friendship, patience and support. I am sorry if I have let you down with my decision to move on from the PC Leadership race. My constituents have loyally supported me over the past four elections, they have kept me standing in a sea of red with massive pluralities each time, and now they are asking me to consider a different option of public service. I have always valued loyalty and I know who "brung me to the ball", so to speak. I'm not making a decision on federal politics tomorrow, but I will be announcing another one on provincial politics. Again, thank you for your loyalty, for believing in me and for your encouragement. We'll talk more tomorrow.

    "Today a giant in Ottawa politics has decided to pursue a life away from public service. Over a twenty year distinguished career, John Baird's accomplishments in Ontario and Canada are undeniable. Locally. John Baird's achievements have had an enormous impact on our City. The completion of the Vimy Memorial Bridge, the $1 Queensway Carleton Hospital land deal with the National Capital Commission and the renaming of Highway 416 to the Veterans Memorial Highway are just a few examples of John's local contributions. As a mother, I will always be grateful to John for his efforts to expand newborn screening in the Province, opening the Ontario Early Years Centre and working to build new schools in Nepean-Carleton. I will miss John Baird as a colleague but I wish him every success in the future. -30-

    Friends, Last week at the London leadership debate Lisa MacLeod showcased why she is the Leader our Party needs. During Monday’s debate Lisa discussed her vision for our party - a vision that will bring people back home to the PC family and show the entire province the values we believe in. These values are ones our party has lost sight of in the last decade. Lisa reminded the audience and people watching at home of these values- the rule of Law, safer streets, and strong families. Living within our means while helping those who can’t help themselves, and a strong economy to sustain our health care and education systems. As the leadership race continues on, Lisa’s home of Ottawa will be the next stop for the debate. Join me in supporting Lisa on February 11 during the Ottawa debate as she continues to share her vision for the Ontario PC Party and the province. We need a leader who can demonstrate in a passionate, fresh, dynamic way what it means to be a progressive conservative. We need Lisa MacLeod as Leader. Sincerely, Senator Bob Runciman PS: If you have already renewed or purchased your PC Membership please consider a donation to Lisa's Leadership Campaign.

    Dear Friends, Happy New Year! 2015 promises a fresh start for the Ontario PC Party under new leadership. I want to be your next PC Leader. I want you to ‘Come Back Home’ to the Ontario PC family. Join here: https://lisamacleod.nationbuilder.com/buy_membership today- As Progressive Conservatives we've had our share of ups and downs in 2014. • We were successful in launching an OPP investigation into the $1.2 Billion cancelled gas plants scandal; • We uncovered a major government procurement scandal at MaRS, costing taxpayers $400 M; • We were vindicated on our concerns with smart meters as ‘revenue tools” for the government costing you an extra $1000 a year; but • We lost our fourth consecutive election, under three different Leaders, from three different parts of the province, from three different wings of the Party. We have a lot of work to do to put the pieces back together. But, I believe, we can do it in 2015. As your next Ontario PC Leader, I believe we need to show the sum of all of our parts. I can demonstrate that young, fresh and dynamic leadership our Party and province is looking for. We need to stand for safer streets and strong families, again. We need to show we believe in balanced budgets, but that we also believe in helping those who can’t help themselves. And we need to restore pride in our Party- after all we built Ontario, and we need to get back to building. What Ontarians have been looking for, we've had all along. If you agree with me, I need your support. Again, you can join the Ontario PC Party here https://lisamacleod.nationbuilder.com/buy_membership today in order to vote for me as Leader and bring fresh leadership back to our Party. This campaign will cost $1.5 Million, so your financial contribution is appreciated! You can donate here https://lisamacleod.nationbuilder.com/donate today! 2015 will be the year the Ontario PC Party returns on its path toward victory in the next election. Will you ‘Come Back Home’ and be part of our team?

    Dear fellow conservatives, "Come back home". That was Lisa MacLeod's message to over 200 Ottawa PC supporters last week. Lisa urged lapsed members and supporters to rejoin the PC Party to help form a government in 2018. "If you believe in living within our means and helping those who can't help themselves, come back home. If you believe in safer streets and strong families, come back home. And if you believe in a strong economy to sustain our health care and education system, then come back home", this was the key message of Lisa's barn burner speech in front of the Ottawa PC Family that included former PC Leader Senator Bob Runciman, former PC Cabinet Minister Brian Coburn, MPPs Steve Clark and Jim McDonell as well as Ottawa City Councillors Eli El Chantiry, Marianne Wilkinson and George Darouze. Grete Hale also attended in support of Lisa. To watch Lisa's inspirational message click here: http://youtu.be/7PWFJaRTMhY?list=UU-IevB8kBqat5u63XmGAkDg For us to win in 2018 we need Ontario PC supporters to come back home and encourage other Ontarians to make the PC Party their home. I encourage you to "come back home" today by renewing your Ontario PC Party membership here: https://lisamacleod.nationbuilder.com/buy_membership or by making a contribution here: https://lisamacleod.nationbuilder.com/donate We are the Party that built Ontario. We have a rich history and a bright future. Help Lisa make our PC Party become home to many more Ontarians. We need to get back to building. Sincerely, Phil Murphy Lisa MacLeod 2015 Campaign Manager
