As many of you know, I had the opportunity to meet with MLA Leela Aheer, Education Critic for the Wildrose, just over a week ago. I applaud MLA Aheer for demonstrating genuine care for the safety of children through both words and meaningful action.
On the afternoon of Monday June 5th, MLA Aheer will be introducing me as a guest in the Legislature and then submitting the 3 inch stack of our photocopied letters as an official tabled document to the Legislature.
You can watch livestreaming from the Assembly website starting at 1:30 p.m. Introduction of guests is near the beginning, followed by Question Period and then the tabling of documents. For those unable to watch the livestream, there should be a video available on the Legislature website later in the week.
I will be inviting the media to cover the story, including Global, CTV, Edmonton Journal, CBC, Life Site, the Rebel, Danielle Smith from News Talk 770 and Lighthouse News.
Progress toward meeting with Minister of Education
I continue to work toward re-scheduling a meeting directly with the Minister of Education, David Eggen. In the meantime, I have been invited to meet with David Eggen’s Chief of Staff on Tuesday.
Please continue to phone Minister Eggen’s office (780 427 5010) and let him know that it is essential he makes time to personally meet together to address this important topic as soon as possible.
Southern Alberta Conference on the Family
For anyone in southern Alberta next weekend, I invite you to attend the Southern Alberta Conference on the Family in Medicine Hat, taking place on Saturday June 10th. I am honoured to be one of the guest speakers, along with John Carpay, President of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, and Donna Trimble, Executive Director of Parents for Choice in Education. The conference is free but requires pre-registration. All details and registration forms are available on their website.
