Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I hope you find it a helpful resource, whether you are searching for more information about my work as a Member of Parliament, ways in which my office can be of service to you, or the Conservative Party and its policies.

I am honoured to represent Edmonton-Wetaskiwin in the House of Commons and to be able to play a part in building and strengthening this wonderful community. Our constituency is a perfect snapshot capturing what makes Canada the greatest country in the world – a mix of urban and rural, French and English, blue collar and white collar, and truly multicultural.

As we strive together to make our part of the world even better than it already is, the key is communication. As a result, this site has been designed not only to help you find the information you need, but also to allow you to send me feedback on the issues that matter to you and your family. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks again for taking the time to visit.

The world I live in as a Member of Parliament can be harsh sometimes. Our political system is an adversarial one, in which feedback is almost solely focused on what someone is doing wrong at any given point in time. It is also a busy world, where we don't get enough opportunity to reflect on the positives.

Yesterday, in the midst of some routine 'catching up' of things that had slipped through the cracks, I came across a year-old e-mail that I had completely missed until now. In it, a man named Dave Sacks, from Annapolis, Maryland, reflected on a charity hockey game that Jaden and I had participated in that April. He had even taken the time to write a letter to the editor in the Edmonton Journal. (Because my constituency of Edmonton-Wetaskiwin has Canada's largest population, correspondence from non-constituents can take awhile to look at, especially from outside Canada.)

I can't adequately express how meaningful these words are to me. We all do the best we can to balance the incredible busyness of life in politics. On top of that, we try to use the platform afforded us to do things that matter to people. And honestly, there are many times that I wonder if what I'm doing really has the impact I want it to. I think most of you reading this can relate to having this feeling from time-to-time.

It's kind of funny - the fact that my life is so busy that I didn't see this e-mail until now makes it much more powerful for me. It naturally fuels me to keep going, but it also reminds me that I need to take more time to reflect once in awhile. And that, when someone has a positive influence on my life, my taking a few minutes to let them know can have the same empowering effect for them.

To Dave, belated thank you for taking the time to write this letter. And, to the entire US Marshal Service Hockey Team, thank you for taking the time out of your lives to use your platform and your love for hockey to help others, and for warmly welcoming me and Jaden as teammates. We look forward to suiting up again sometime in the future, as our schedule permits. 🇨🇦️ 🇺🇸️ 💙

That’s awesome stuff. Thank you Mike for being the voice or reason for our beautiful area and Canada..!!!

Great stuff - thank you for sharing.

Wow. Cost almost $1.40 per litre in Ottawa today. I’m worried about how much more gas (and groceries, power, home heating, and more!) will cost families with Justin Trudeau’s Carbon Tax. Politicians need to be making life more affordable, not more expensive.

What a great grand opening day, a big thank you to everyone who supports our market! See you next Thursday.

Saddened by such senseless violence. Praying that the victims make a full recovery and hoping that Mississauga Police quickly apprehend those responsible.
