COVID June 5 update

Update from your Member of Provincial Parliament regarding COVID-19

Change needs to happen

This week, I began the first of many requests to the provincial government to bring changes to the systematic racism that exist across Ontario. In recent days, I have seen incredibly troubling images from the United States and also inspiring, peaceful protests by activists in the US, in Canada and around the world. To see my letter with Michael Coteau (MPP for Don Valley East) click here. On Friday, I participated in the solidarity march for George Floyd.

Local Updates for Ottawa-Vanier

Despite not being able to go to BBQ’s and community association events, I still want to find a way to connect with you and all residents in the riding. This week I  had meetings with Seniors Homes and Students and if you want to reach out to meet with me, send me an email (!

Town Halls

Our series of Town Halls continue and we had two this week! if you missed them and wanted to see what your elected officials had to say on the ongoing situation click here for the Vanier/Overbrook communities and here for the Pineview town hall. Next week, we will be hosting a town hall for the Lowertown community, sign up here. These town halls are coordinated with your local associations and all this collaboration is a really great way to work together.

As your MPP for Ottawa Vanier, I would like know about your reality during COVID-19. Your input is vital to make sure I can bring Ottawa-Vanier’s voice to the Ontario Legislative Assembly during this COVID-19 re-opening process. Please fill out this form.

As always, thank you for doing your part in fighting COVID-19. My team remains available to help. Please feel free to give us a call at 613-744-4484 or send us an email at
