I am proud to serve you as the Conservative Government's Chair of the Eastern and Northern Ontario Caucus, which is comprised of the conservative MPs in these areas. This Caucus meets once a week to discuss issues important to Eastern and Northern Ontario.
As your member of parliament, I sit on two committees:
The Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security has studied, among other issues: sex offender registry, DNA databank, border security study, mental health and addiction in federal corrections, and a comprehensive study of taser use in Canada.
The Standing Committee on National Defence has worked on issues such as: a study on the military readiness of the Canadian Forces, involvement in Afghanistan, the Canadian mission in Libya, as well as legislation dealing with military justice.
I am also the Chair of the Law Enforcement Caucus, which acts as a liaison for law enforcement agencies to the government.
