Prince Edward Island Women’s Institute Annual Roadside Clean-up

Posted on May 21, 2015

It was my pleasure to rise in the House to to recognize the hard work and dedication of the PEI Women’s Institute.

Mr. Speaker, I rise to congratulate the Women’s Institute of Prince Edward Island on what has come to be known as the annual roadside cleanup.

In 1973, the Women’s Institute started this great island tradition whereby on a date in May, under its leadership, everyone is encouraged to clean up litter from ditches and pack it in bags for pickup. This effort enhances the image of an island that is proud and keeps itself clean.

This year, after a record snowfall, the Women’s Institute is challenging all islanders to get outside on Saturday, May 23, and enjoy the fresh air while joining neighbours and friends in the roadside cleanup to keep PEI beautiful. Families, schools, community organizations, and businesses are encouraged to pledge their involvement at

Beyond all of its other good work, the Women’s Institute in this way provides inspiration to enhance our environment. On behalf of all islanders, I thank the Women’s Institute for its hard work and dedication.

Statement in the House: National Police Week

Posted on May 13, 2015

Statement in the HouseIt was my pleasure to speak in the House to pay tribute to so many officers and their families who serve us everyday.

Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the Liberal Party, I want to acknowledge our front-line law-enforcement officers across Canada for the commitment they make each and every day to our safety and to the security of our neighbourhoods and communities.

This being National Police Week, it is important that Canadians take this opportunity to reflect on the work the men and women in uniform do, which at times places them in harm’s way. Across the country, police officers and police services are present within our communities and take direct action in response to criminal activities, social unrest, and even mental health issues. As well, they contribute to public confidence in safe communities.

Throughout National Police Week, I ask all members to reflect on the contribution made not only by front-line officers but also by the members of their families. It is the families that share most directly the risks and challenges faced by those serving in police services across Canada. We thank them.
