    It was a pleasure to finally meet Barb McNeely of CUPW at the National Farmer's Union (NFU) conference in Saskatoon. I would like to thank CUPW for offering their solidarity to farmers and the NFU for supporting postal workers in their struggle. It has been a very informative conference so far. I especially enjoyed Scott Harris' (Council of Canadians) presentation on the panel dealing with "Corporate Power and the Extraction of Rural Wealth. [Photo L-R: Barb McNeely, me]

    I enjoyed spending time in Ottawa with our federal candidate Jacqui Gingras from Okanagan-Shuswap. She is an excellent candidate and would make a great MP. I wish her and her campaign team all the very best.

    It was a pleasure to have lunch with Lucy Sharratt of Canadian Biotechnology Network (CBAN) and to get an up-date on the status of GMO alfalfa and the Arctic Apple. I want to thank Lucy for sharing her expertise with me over the years on this very important issue. Thanks also to CBAN for the great work they do.

    It was a pleasure to meet with Laura Sacks from Nelson and her Ontario colleagues of the Citizens Climate Lobby. They presented me with a petition urging the government to adopt a carbon policy that applies a fee to greenhouse gas emissions at their source of production in Canada or port of entry into Canada.

    A big thanks to Mike Brar president of the canadian Home Builders' Association South Okanagan for inviting me to address their meeting in Penticton. A special thanks to Carol Sudchak, Executive Officer of the Association for making this happen. Among other things, I mentioned the need for the federal government to re-engage seriously in affordable housing. [Photo L-R: Me, Mike Brar]

    Yesterday, my colleague Rosane Doré Lefebvre received unanimous support in Parliament for her Bill C-608 calling for a ‘National Day of the Midwife’. I urge everyone to support Rosane’s bill through further stages in the legislative process. For more information and action items please visit the link below.

    November 18, 2014 ONTARIO ENDORSES TOM MULCAIR’S AFFORDABLE CHILDCARE PLAN Working with the provinces to create more spaces and reduce parents’ costs is central to Tom Mulcair’s plan for Affordable Childcare and we warmly welcome Ontario’s endorsement of our proposal. We congratulate Andrea Horwath and the Ontario NDP for bringing this motion forward and working together with all parties to get the Ontario Legislature to endorse the NDP’s plan that would create affordable, accessible and high quality childcare spaces at a cost of no more than $15/day. Sadly, in the nine years since Stephen Harper first promised to create 125,000 childcare spaces, Conservatives not only broke that promise, but under their watch parents have seen their childcare costs skyrocket. We believe it’s long past time parents got a break and look forward to working with the provinces to make this a reality. -30-

    I would like to thank Daphne Fields for organizing our Smart Meter Forum in Winlaw last Friday. The turn out was excellent and Dr. Ross Andersen's presentation very informative. I explained to those present that my colleague Libby Davies, our Health Critic, had written a letter to Rona Ambrose, the Health Minister expressing concern about this technology and Safety Code 6. So far, she has not yet received a response. Libby's staff has met with reps of Citizens for Safe Technology to discuss their petition campaign. Prior to the meeting I saw the film Take Back Your Power and would certainly recommend it as a good backgrounder on wireless technology and smart meters

    I would like to thank Cara Lee Malange, Paris Voykin and Duff Sutherland for their most interesting presentation at the MIR Centre in Castlegar last night. They talked about their trip to Guatamala last June with Graham Russel of Rights Action. While in Guatamala they met with people who have suffered at the hands of foreign mining companies, including those from Canada. It was heartbreaking to see how lives have been affected because of corporate greed.

    November 12, 2014 NO MORE EXCUSES FOR CONSERVATIVE CLIMATE CHANGE INACTION OTTAWA – While the American and Chinese governments have announced a bold plan to slash carbon emissions, Stephen Harper’s failure to tackle climate change means that Canada is once again lagging behind global action on the climate crisis. “If the world’s two largest polluters can form a partnership to prioritise our environment, there’s no good reason for the Conservatives to continue to stall Canadian action on emissions reductions,” said NDP Environment critic, Megan Leslie (Halifax). While Environment Canada figures have repeatedly showed that Canada will fall far short of meeting reductions targets set by the Conservatives, the U.S. continues to be on track to meet their emissions reduction goals. “The Conservatives have stalled action to reduce Canada’s emissions, weakened key environmental protections, and silenced critics,” said Leslie. “The NDP is the only party that has presented a credible plan to ensure Canada reduces greenhouse gas emissions.” – 30 –

    I am looking forward to spending this Rembembrance Day in Hedley and Princeton. This is a time to honour those that made the ultimate sacrifice and to reflect on the horrors of war. I believe that sending our soldiers in to battle should always be a very last resort. However, when they are called to service they should have the very best of support and be looked after upon their return. It is a shame that veterans have to protest the lack of services offered them by holding rallies on Parliament Hill!
