In the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee on Pub­lic Safety and Na­tional Se­cu­rity (SECU), we con­tin­ued the study on M-167, which deals with ru­ral crime. A lo­cal con­stituent ap­peared as a wit­ness on Tues­day. For more in­for­ma­tion on these meet­ings, visit: www.our­com­mons.ca/Com­mit­tees/en/SECU.

This week, I at­tended six meet­ings and four events, as well as recorded a mes­sage. I will fly back to the rid­ing over the week­end to at­tend lo­cal events. Look for my up­date next Fri­day on the hap­pen­ings of Par­lia­ment as it will con­tinue to sit for an­other week.
