Holiday greetings from MP David Wilks

We live in a country where everyone has the right to their opinion and can voice their concerns without persecution.

As we approach the holiday season, I reflect back on the past year as your Member of Parliament and the learning curve that comes with federal politics.

We as Canadians are blessed to live in one of the best countries in the world. We are able to say that we can travel freely from coast to coast to coast and enjoy the abundance that Canada has to offer.

We can share in the natural beauty that Canada has to offer. The splendour of our country ranges from the west coast and its awesome sunsets, through the Rocky Mountains, across the wheat fields of the prairies to the great lakes , and then onward to the St. Lawrence seaway and scenery of the east coast.

We can be proud that we live in a country where we recognize two official languages and that our history reflects the importance of working together in both languages.

I can say that although politicians may not always agree on issues that affect Canadians, they all have the best interests of Canadians at heart. Having said that, we live in a country where everyone has the right to their opinion and can voice their concerns without persecution.

Canada continues to be a melting pot country, by which we have many cultures who now call Canada their home. We are proud to boast such a multi-cultural society which shows the world that we can live, work and learn from each other’s culture.

I am honoured to be your Member of Parliament, to listen to your concerns and bring them forward and have them discussed in our nation’s capital.

From my family to yours, I wish you a very joyous holiday season and Happy New Year. May you be blessed with good health and prosperity in 2013.

 

David Wilks, MP
