With Bluesfest, HOPE Volleyball and all that Ottawa has to offer during the sum-mer, I hope you will all find a way to enjoy some time outside with family and friends.
Telus Helping Create Safer Communities for Kids
Telus announced $650 million in advanced technology in Ontario ($210 million in Ottawa) leading to 900 jobs in Ontario of which 70 will be in Ottawa. It is also partnering with the police and other community organizations to help prevent child abuse.
Islamic School Graduation
I was honoured to speak at the recent graduation ceremony at the Ottawa Islamic School
and to encourage the students to do great things.
Congratulations to those graduates and all recent graduates from Ottawa West—Nepean.
It was a great pleasure to see so many of you on Canada Day! We have so much to be thankful for in our great country.
Anti-Terrorism Speech at the UN
It was an honour to promote the values we as Canadians
cherish as I spoke at the UN Anti-Terrorism Conference at the United Nations.
I was able to commit further Canadian aid
to helping keep Canada free and safe by stopping terrorists around the world.
Ringing the Bell to Close the NASDAQ
I had the opportunity to close a day of trading on the NASDAQ where 46 Canadian businesses are traded publicly. Our government is proud to support the long-term growth and prosperity of Canadian companies. The 2012 Global Venture Capital and Private Equity Country Attractiveness Index re-cently ranked Canada as the second most attractive place in the world for investors.
Respecting Fallen Canadian Soldiers from Battle of Hong Kong
Laying a wreath in the Sai Wan War Cemetary in Hong Kong to pay respect to the over 550 soldiers who died defending Hong Kong in 1941 was a sobering honour. Sincere thanks to all Canadian veterans for your service and sacrifice.
I will be conducting more Tele-townhall meetings to continue to listen to your ideas. If you would like to participate in the next one, please send your phone number to BairdJ@parl.gc.ca
