MPP Report ~ May 2019 Issue 

There is a lot to report from our Kanata-Carleton community this month. Many of the highlights can be read in the news section of my MPP website. From the remarkable efforts helping residents in the West Carleton flood zone to the exciting news and events in our local high tech community, I like to try and keep our community informed of news, events and activities in the news section:

The Ontario Premier travelled to Ottawa on April 26 to see first hand the flood conditions and the relief efforts throughout West Carleton. The Premier stated: “I just want to tell everybody in this region that we will be here to support them 1,000 per cent.”
Full coverage of his stop in Constance Bay is in this Ottawa Sun news article
Here are more photos and comments from the Premier’s visit.
I have been working with my provincial government colleagues and officials at the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) to ensure West Carleton residents get the most up-to-date information about services the provincial government can offer for residents and businesses impacted by the flood. Read here about the Ontario Government's assistance to residents in the flood zone.  
"A heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers who have helped with the flooding response through West Carleton. Thank you to first responders and members of the military who are doing an amazing job. Your help is a relief and is greatly appreciated."
Above – I had the privilege of presenting art work from a local school by way of thanks to Ottawa fire fighters.
The Ontario Finance Minister recently paid a visit to high tech businesses in Kanata North. The Finance Minister toured Youi.TV and the autonomous vehicle facilities at QNX and he was also briefed on the local high technology business park by Kanata North Business Association. For news and more photos of the visit, click here.
The Minister of Ontario Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade Minister and Minister of Labour joined me to meet with the Kanata North Business Association. KNBA Chairperson Amy MacLeod and Executive Director Veronica Farmer provided a briefing on Kanata North's current business climate and the ministers discussed Ottawa's high technology business interests. For news and more photos of the meeting, click here.
I attended the official launch of the Ottawa L5 Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) Test Facilities – the first of its kind in North America. Here I am taking a ride in an electric car designed and built by students at Collège La Cité.

On a related note, have you had a chance to read the "Kanata-Carleton High Tech and Business Initiative," which identifies four pillars of sustainability and growth to advance the interests of high tech and business in Kanata and West Carleton? Here is the media release: MPP Releases Local High Tech and Business Initiative.
Last month I had the pleasure of speaking at the Ottawa Mayor’s Breakfast Series to provide an overview of the 2019 Ontario Budget. I took this opportunity to explain the government’s approach in fostering a supportive business climate for Ottawa’s business community. Read more on this event by clicking here. If you are interested, you can read my speech at Ottawa City Hall here. In the photo with me: Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, Kanata South Councillor Allan Hubley and Kanata North Councillor Jenna Sudds. 
It was wonderful to be at the Canadian Turkish Heritage Foundation Spring Festival. Such a warm and friendly family event – and the food was delicious.

I was pleased to drop by and meet with volunteers and local residents at the Glen Cairn United Church Rummage Sale a few weekends ago. This was a great community effort! 
Thank you to Paul Brennan from Kanata’s Gilmour Printing for the tour of the facilities. I enjoy getting out and seeing local businesses - and on average I visit a dozen a month. Again, I appreciated the invite and the time spent at Gilmour Printing.
