Mr. Speaker, today the House of Commons will welcome our newest Conservative MP, the member for Desnethé—Missinippi—Churchill River, who won in the recent byelection by campaigning on the priorities of local families: lower taxes, safer communities and strong leadership for the economy.
With his background in law enforcement and his knowledge of issues affecting northern Saskatchewan, it is clear that the newest government member will provide a very strong voice in the House.
The Conservative byelection victory is also an endorsement of the strong leadership and real results people see from our Prime Minister and our Conservative government.
This win also highlights the fact that today there are more Conservatives and fewer Liberals in the House of Commons than there were following the last federal election. As well, since the last federal election, as shown in the nine byelections, Conservative support has consistently gone up and support for the Liberal Party has gone down.
Canadians are making it clear that they also trust the leadership of this Prime Minister and this government because we are getting the job done.
