Statements in the House

Natural Resources January 28th, 2013

Mr. Speaker the natural resource sector is creating jobs, growth and revenue for essential social services across Canada.

Last week I was pleased to help host a group of oil sands companies which went to southwestern Ontario to establish links with manufacturing companies. This development is expected to create $63 billion in revenue for the Ontario economy over the next 25 years.

Would the parliamentary secretary comment on the NDP's insistence that our resources are hurting Canada's economy?

Superstorm Sandy November 1st, 2012

Mr. Speaker, it is with great sadness that I stand in the House of Commons today to share news of a tragic nature.

As Canadians may know, my community of Sarnia—Lambton was very hard hit by the recent passage of superstorm Sandy.

I stand before the House today to share news that an individual, someone who was a husband, father and grandfather, has tragically lost his life in service to his community. He was working to restore hydro with Bluewater Power in Sarnia—Lambton, which was lost as a result of superstorm Sandy's impact.

During this time of tragic loss, I extend heartfelt and sincere sympathies on behalf of the House of Commons to his family and his extended family of Bluewater Power, who were his colleagues and friends. Our prayers are with them all.

I also commend all workers who put their lives at risk in service to their community, as this heroic gentleman did.

Brigden Fair October 4th, 2012

Mr. Speaker, with Thanksgiving weekend almost here, families from across Sarnia—Lambton will make their way to the Brigden Fair, a popular event celebrating its 162nd year in 2012.

The first fair was held in 1850 by the early area settlers on Reilly's farm in Moore township, today known as St. Clair township. The fair initially moved from one community to another throughout the township until finally settling in Brigden.

The Brigden Fair has become a popular destination on Thanksgiving weekend for those who wish to enjoy some quality time with their friends and family. This year the opening ceremonies will take place on Friday, October 5, with the parade following on Saturday.

Admission is free for elementary school-aged children and there will be a variety of entertaining events, including Midway attractions, monster truck and helicopter rides and, of course, many 4-H events and arts and crafts galore.

I congratulate all the volunteers who make it possible for urban to meet rural, and wish all a happy Thanksgiving.
