    Today I wear purple proudly. March 26th is Purple Day, the day for epilepsy awareness and I want to reach out to everyone to say that we should all take a moment to reflect on how epilepsy affects so many lives each day.

    I want to take this moment to highlight the outstanding effort of the Wikwemikong High School #team5672 as they make their way to the North Bay FIRST Robotics Competition Regional. They are one of the four teams from the north competing in the competition and the only all First Nation’s team. Good luck to the team, I wish you all the best and I know you will do everyone proud. Anyone who wants to follow a live stream of the even can do so at www.watchfirstnow.com on Friday and Saturday. #omgrobots

    I want to extend my condolences to the family, friends and close colleagues of Jim Hillyer, MP for Medicine Hat-Cardston -Warner who passed away suddenly yesterday. He was a well-respected Member of Parliament and will be missed by many on the Hill. Too often people look at parliament and focus on the differences between parties overlooking the human factor that ties us all. In moments like these, we are given a stark reminder of how similar we all are. Rest in Peace, Jim.

    Here are a couple of excellent articles to mark World Water Day. We are blessed to have so much fresh water in Canada and all the more so in Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing - which is kissed by Lakes Superior and Huron and has countless lakes, rivers, creeks, streams, fenns and bogs- but we have to be vigilant, creative, and determined if we don't want to squander our bounty. http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/world-water-day-resource-conservation-1.3496114 http://blog.wwf.ca/blog/2016/03/21/why-the-great-lakes-need-a-watershed-moment/

    Here is a picture with the wonderful Scott Pike to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day. Everyone who knows Scotty understands he is the definition of someone who shines through his abilities. He has volunteered on every one of my campaigns and is always a beacon of light around the office. New Democrats recognize that persons with Down syndrome should enjoy full and equal rights – including the opportunity to participate fully in their communities. Everyday persons with Down Syndrome continue to face stigmatization, abuse and lack of support. That's why it's important that we promote inclusive policies and raise awareness about social justice for persons with disabilities, including those with Down syndrome. New Democrats remain committed to building a socially just, inclusive country where no one is left behind.

    I’ll be making a statement in the House of Commons shortly, supporting the International Day to End Racial Discrimination. Racism creates barriers, limits participation, reduces productivity, and makes us all the poorer. We have come a long way, but I firmly believe we still have a lot to do to combat racism as we mark the 140th anniversary of the Indian Act.

    I was just sent this picture from the all-party Ocean Caucus that I attended in late February. The caucus was founded by WWF-Canada in 2012, when they brought together like-minded MPs who share a commitment to work toward cleaner, healthier oceans. This event was well attended and I have great hopes for this caucus going forward.

    Today nearly 200,000 children from across Canada bit into apples to celebrate healthy, local food. I attended an event in Ottawa called the Great Big Crunch. It was celebrating Nutrition Month and promoting good health for Canadian children.

    Another busy day in parliament and I was joined by Melisa as part of the McGill University Women in the House program. These programs do such a great job of showing young women what being an MP can be like and hopefully encouraging some to seek public office. It's a two way street as well since I am always learning something new.

    The ones and zeros in the digital camera didn’t co-operate for whatever reason so I don’t have a picture to share from my meeting with representatives from the Canadian Police Association yesterday, but I can tell you about the conversation we had. They were meeting parliamentarians to share their vision for a National Action Plan for First Responders Suffering Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. They told me in the last two years at least 76 Canadian first responders have taken their own lives, which is a strong argument in favour of government action on mental health issues for these people that serve us in the most difficult and harrowing circumstances. These people rush in to worst situations without hesitation. I hope to see this issue before parliament and expect it would receive a lot of support.

    Another way to celebrate the contribution of women is to put them on our money. The Conservatives took the image of the Famous Five and Thérèse Casgrain of the $50 bill in 2011. Right now the only woman on our money is the Queen - How about some Canadians? Check out the link below which links to a petition as well http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2016/01/12/women-canadian-money_n_8964450.html

    Cindy Blackstock was the guest Speaker at this morning's International Women's Day breakfast organized by the NDP. She is a remarkable woman and the very best role model for the young women who joined us thanks to the University of Toronto's Women in Parliament event.

    It's International Women's Day and it's a busy one here in parliament. I am hosting a student from the University of Toronto for their Women in Parliament event and we started with an International Women's Day breakfast at 7:30 am. Here is a Press Release I sent out about IWD. I am proud to be able to show young women that hard work has its rewards, but we know that isn't always the case and there is much left to do. carolhughes.ndp.ca/international-women-s-day-highlights-empowerment carolhughes.npd.ca/la-journee-internationale-de-la-femme-met-en-lumiere-la-responsabilisation

    It's time to fix Employment Insurance so that it is there when you need it. We pay the premiums but the money isn't in a dedicated fund. Without a fix the premium are becoming just another tax on our jobs for employees and employers. Sign the petition today! http://www.ndp.ca/EI
