I was pleased to host Members of Parliament, Bob Zimmer​ and Glen Motz,​ as well as Tracey Wilson​ of the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights​, last night for a frank townhall discussion on Bill C-71 and how it unfairly targets law abiding firearms owners, while doing nothing to address gangs and organized crime.

Father’s Day

Father’s Day

It was exciting to have Amanda and the kids surprise me with pizza for lunch and a beautiful father’s day gift - a collage to hang on the wall of my Parliament Hill office. I’m only able to serve our community with the support of my wonderful family. Thank you Amanda, Luke, Ama, Michaela, and James - I love you!

Dedication of the Gordon K. Brown Council Chambers

Dedication of the Gordon K. Brown Council Chambers

It’s humbling to take part in the dedication of the Gordon K. Brown Council Chambers in Gananoque. Before he was our MP, he was a councillor here. It’s a fitting tribute to a family man who always found a way to be a champion for Gananoque.
