At the "Coldest Night of The Year", a walk to benefit those in Calgary who are impacted by poverty.

Happy New Year! One of my goals this year as an MLA is to meet with more constituents. I’m on a mission to have coffee with anyone and everyone in Calgary-Buffalo who would like to discuss their thoughts on what’s taking place at the Alberta Legislature and at home in our community. The month of January flew by and I was able to engage in discussion at local businesses including Kawa Espresso Bar, Café Beano and Good Earth. I will be heading back into session on February 9th, and will be taking into consideration all of the suggestions that have been brought to my attention. If you’re interested in sharing some time together, please connect with my constituency office at 403-244-7737.

On Sunday, February 7th, I will be attending the annual Eau Claire community skating party on Prince’s Island Park - please come join me for hot chocolate, ice-skating on the Lagoon, and winter games. The event is free and begins at 11:00 a.m., skate rentals are available.

In mid-February, I will be touring and meeting with students and staff at Bow Valley College in the heart of Calgary-Buffalo. The College is an integral post-secondary institution that aims to help people fulfill their dreams for a better education and a better career. Since 1965 Bow Valley College has provided opportunities for academic upgrading, careers in Justice including corrections and law enforcement, careers in health and wellness including pharmacy technician, practical nurse, English language learning, and more.

Monday, February 15th is Family Day – a statutory holiday in Alberta first celebrated in 1990. The holiday is intended to allow Albertans to spend time with their families. Lastly, I am very much looking forward to celebrating the Chinese New Year and the year of the monkey throughout the month of February. Kung hei fat choi!
