Mr. Speaker, our Conservative team works hard in the House for all Canadians, and we also work hard on the ice to help raise money for our local communities.
Last night I was able to lace up my skates with some of my Conservative colleagues, former NHL players and community leaders to help raise money for the United Way of Leeds—Grenville.
Our Conservative MPs have been part of numerous charity hockey games, spanning the ridings of Edmonton—Leduc and Wild Rose, Alberta to Barrie and Peterborough in Ontario. These games have raised money for local United Ways, the Royal Victoria Hospital, boys and girls clubs and victim assistance funds.
These games have been part of my colleagues' efforts to raise more than half a million dollars for various charities.
This is not going to stop. On this side of the House, we have found another great way to show real leadership and assistance for the very communities we represent.
We lace them up, and in Conservative ridings we are getting it done for local charities.
