Cornwall - Jan. 3, 2012 - A good number of constituents in SD and SG have asked me what they can expect to happen in Parliament during 2012. In 2011 we kept our promises by introducing a number of pieces of legislation we had campaigned on.

In the fall session we took action to protect taxpayers by eliminating the per vote subsidy by fifty cents per year over four years. This will ensure Canadian taxpayer’s hard earned money is not funding political party’s. In response to Canadians living in Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta being significantly underrepresented in the House of Commons, our Government introduced the Fair Representation Act. This Act will bring Canada closer to representation by adding 15 additional seats.

Our Government also stood up for farmers, hunters and sports shooters this session by introducing legislation to scrap the wasteful and ineffective long gun registry. Further, our Government gave Canadian wheat and barley farmers the freedom to market their grain as they choose by introducing The Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act. Our Government also introduced the Safe Streets and Communities Act which will target crime, terrorism and provide support and protection to victims of crime.

First and foremost, our Government made the economy our number one priority during the fall session. Since July 2009 our Government has created 600,000 new jobs through Canada`s Economic Action Plan. Throughout 2012 the economy will remain our Government`s number one priority. In consultations with Finance Minister Flaherty he has been very up front with us. We must eliminate our deficit and control our spending. But he also points out that while being prudent we also must remain flexible. If the economy goes into a tailspin we must be able to react, and react quickly.

I look forward to another productive session on Parliament Hill.
