SUMMARY OF HOUSE SESSION: ANNE QUACH AND NDP GETTING RESULTS FOR QUEBEC
June 24th, 2014 - 2:23pm
SALABERRY-DE-VALLEYFIELD – New Democrat MP Anne Minh-Thu Quach (Beauharnois--Salaberry) is proud of the work that the NDP has accomplished during the recent Parliamentary session. She points to several victories over the government on important issues, such as fighting for railway safety and getting the government to back down on electoral reforms.
“With Tom Mulcair as our leader, the NDP has been the strongest and most effective opposition to the Conservative government since it took power in 2006,” said Quach. “We have won important victories for the people of Beauharnois--Salaberry – victories that we can all be proud of.”
In addition to forcing Stephen Harper’s government to abandon some of the most abhorrent aspects of its electoral reform bill, the NDP was able to get a firm commitment to remove the dangerous DOT-111 tank railcars from service and protect our cheese producers from free trade with Europe.
“The Conservatives are very stubborn when it comes to decision-making, but our dedicated work helped mitigate the negative fallout for Quebec,” added Quach. “I will continue to push hard to get them to change course on several other issues, including cuts to public services, the decision to cancel home mail delivery services, cuts suffered by the CBC and by Veterans Affairs, and to the lack of support provided to local farmers and to our local economies.”
Now that the House of Commons is on break for the summer, Anne is pleased that she will have more time to spend in her riding over the coming weeks. This will be an opportunity for her and her team to meet with constituents on door-to-door outings and in the community in order to bring their questions and concerns back to Parliament in the fall. This time will also provide Anne and her husband the opportunity of welcoming a new bundle of joy into their lives as the couple is expecting the arrival of their first born in the coming weeks.
“I wish to thank all the well-wishers for their kind words and their encouragement throughout my pregnancy, concluded Anne Minh-Thu Quach. Your support was greatly appreciated. I will stay in contact with constituents with the help of my team, you are sure to see us out and about throughout the season. This summer, be sure to benefit from the riches our region has to offer and make take the time to support our local farmers and our local communities, you won’t be disapointed!
