    Here's an important issue for the north. If you remember the lead up to the election there were a number of announcements for braodband projects in Northern Ontario. Now that the government has changed, everything is on hold. This is important infrastructure if we are going to be able to participate in the virtual economy, educate people, or just stay informed and in touch. http://www.chroniclejournal.com/news/local/ndp-puts-gov-t-on-broadband-hot-seat/article_5cdb8830-cdaa-11e5-bc4b-93bc8cbc703d.html

    I had a great meeting yesterday with representatives from the Canadian Federation of Students who are looking for some improvements with the help of parliamentarians. They raised some key issues with me including these recommendations: • Alleviate education-related debt that burdens Canadians through a publicly funded, affordable post-secondary system • Re-establish Canada’s identity as a world leader in research • Address the long-term implications of high levels of un/underemployment levels of recent graduates The delegates I met with were very prepared for the conversation and shared many points related to how each recommendation could be achieved. I know that the costs associated with post-secondary education is one of the biggest hurdles that students have to overcome and that too many of our young people are starting out their post graduate life with crushing debt. Add un/underemployment to that and it’s easy to see why these students have devoted themselves to this cause.

    Today is World Cancer Day. While the call to action of this year’s theme ‘We can. I can’, includes how everyone to do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer, there is a lot our government can do in Canada - especially when it comes to equal access to cancer drugs throughout the country. More and more, Canadians have to rely on private insurance to pay for their cancer medications - even then only certain drugs are covered and too many people have to be treated in hospital so they can get the medicine they need. We are one of the wealthiest and stable countries in the world and still Cancer treatment can be a financial burden which only adds to the emotional stress for patients and their families. New Democrats believe that Canadians need universal prescription drug coverage. We must ensure that every Canadian – regardless of their age or place of residence – has access to the drugs they need to keep them healthy. We will continue to do everything we can to fight this disease and improve cancer treatment for all Canadians. http://www.worldcancerday.org/

    It's time to back words with action! Sign the petition to let the government know that equal pay for work of equal value is important to you. http://www.ndp.ca/payequity

    I had a great time at Elliot Lake Secondary School’s Walk for Memories on the weekend. This is a cause that is close to my heart as my family is one of those affected by this cruel disease. I want to extend my thanks and appreciation to the organizers, participants and all those who supported the walk.
