Quotes

“I am honoured to have been selected to travel with the Canada-United States Inter-Parliamentary Group to Washington D.C., to discuss trade and the ongoing NAFTA negotiations. These issues are top of mind for many Canadians, and especially for the many businesses in Niagara who work on a regular basis with customers and clients throughout the United States.

The meetings we had in March with Members of the United States Congress and Senators were extremely productive and I am eager to building on the foundation that was established in spring 2017. Canada and the United States have a long history of maintaining successful bilateral relations, and I look forward to working towards strengthen those ties.”
