Ottawa, ON – With today’s return of Parliament, Sault Ste. Marie Member of Parliament, Terry Sheehan, is looking forward to the opportunity to represent our riding by working towards improved policy that makes a difference in people’s daily lives.
“With Parliament open I have better access to government Ministers and an opportunity to push the issues that matter to people in Sault Ste. Marie and nationally. I’m also looking forward to getting Committees up and running in order to continue implementing important legislation and having a chance to take advice from Canadians as to which policies they want and need,” said MP Sheehan.
After the federal election in October, Parliament reconvened only briefly in December. The new Government, headed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, moved quickly to pass measures to lower taxes for the middle class as committed by the Liberals during the election.
Sheehan added, “Some of the key issues I will be pushing immediately are the need to kick start the economy through infrastructure using Canadian-made steel, and reversing the punitive changes made by the previous government to Employment Insurance. With Parliament now open I am confident we will work toward better opportunities for Canadians.”
