One of the best ways I have to connect directly with you and hear your concerns is through events such as our Coffee & Conversations.
I love hosting these discussions because every one I have with a different group of Don Valley West residents is productive for different reasons.
Recently, the topics we have discussed have ranged from the environment and mental health to immigration and U.S.-Canada relations. I am always impressed with the level of knowledge on these issues among residents and appreciate the opportunity to hear new ideas and approaches to important issues. As I continue to take on more responsibilities in my new role as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, it is now more important than ever that I hear your thoughts on how to restore constructive Canadian leadership in the world and promote Canada’s interests and values globally.
One thing that has become clear during these discussions is that Don Valley West cares about a more fair, inclusive and green Canada for all Canadians. During our Coffee & Conversations, I hear a clear affirmation for our government’s positive approach to politics, our commitment to civility in the House of Commons and the action we’ve taken to deliver on our promises so far. Thank you to everyone who attends for your time!
