Happy Canada Day! I know that this year’s celebrations don’t look or feel the way they normally do. In past years, all of us would be getting ready to visit our favourite Canada Day celebrations across Flamborough-Glanbrook.

Even though we can't celebrate this tremendous day how we normally would, we have to make the most out of the situation we have been put in this year. Celebrate with your friends and family, but make sure you follow the proper health and safety guidelines. Wear masks and practice physical distancing.

This year, we have proved that Canadians are strong and resilient. That alone is cause for celebration. So from myself and my wife Almut, Happy Canada Day!!

Today, June 26, 2020, marks International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.

If we look around the world, we can see regimes who are torturing, persecuting and jailing their own people. On this day, we think of these victims.

We’re mindful that Canada has always been a leader in advancing for human rights around the world and we must have the resolve to continue to do so.

Today, I would like to take a moment and congratulate the Class of 2020. Whether you graduated Elementary School, High School, College or University this year, you were forced to miss out on opportunities that you were really looking forward to. 

No matter what challenges you faced when wrapping up the school year, this only makes your achievements more meaningful. As the Class of 2020, you battled this pandemic and came out of it stronger. 

Once again, I would like to congratulate the Class of 2020 and tell you all that I am proud of your efforts and that I know you will achieve great things.
Every Wednesday, we are encouraging Canadians to participate in Take Out Wednesday. Order some food from your favourite local restaurant today and support our economy here in Flamborough-Glanbrook. 

It is more important now than it ever has been to support local small businesses. As we begin to see more and more businesses and restaurants open back up this coming Friday, get out and focus on buying local and buying Canadian- if you can- to help our community and neighbours recover from COVID-19.
Yesterday, it was announced that the Canada-USA border will remain closed to all non-essential travel until July 21, 2020.
 
Please continue to check my page for information regarding the state of the Canada-USA border in the weeks ahead.
June 14th to the 20th marks National Public Service Week in Canada. This week, we recognize the work done on a daily basis by Canada’s public servants at all levels of government. In particular, we salute all the extra efforts to serve Canadians during COVID-19.
 
All Canadians have been adversely impacted by COVID-19. All Canadians have sacrificed. Thank you for helping us get through this together.
June is Seniors’ Month and like all other celebratory events, it will take place a little differently this year due to COVID-19. This year’s theme for the month is “stay safe, stay in touch”.
 
Seniors have felt the real effects of COVID-19, especially those who live on their own and have not been able to see loved ones. Staying in touch with our seniors continues to be very important to keep morale high.
 
Seniors are the people who built this country and they have worked very hard to get the country to where it is. Today, I want to say thank you to our seniors and bring them into the spotlight to be celebrated.

June is ALS Awareness Month and many Canadians across the country hold the month of recognition close to their hearts.

ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease is a disease that gradually paralyzes people because the brain is no longer able to communicate with the muscles of the body that we are typically able to move at will. Over time, as the muscles of the body break down, someone living with ALS will lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, swallow, and eventually breathe.

In normal years, people gather to take part in walks and charity events. This year, due to the effects COVID-19 has had on the world, ALS awareness events have been moved online. 

To learn more about ALS or the events that will take place this month, please visit: https://www.als.ca/about-als/
As many seniors already know, the Federal Government announced last month that they would be granting a subsidy for seniors in order to help them get through COVID-19.
 
This subsidy will be administered through OAS and GIS. The OAS/GIS top-up will be delivered to eligible seniors the week of July 6th.
 
For those seniors eligible for Old Age Security (OAS), a one-time tax-free payment of $300 will be granted and an additional $200 will be granted to those seniors who qualify for Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS).  
 
This is in addition to the doubling of the HST credit for low to middle income seniors that took place in April.
Today, June 7, 2020, marks Canadian Armed Forces Day. The brave women and men of this country who choose to serve us deserve a sincere thank you and our appreciation.

During COVID-19, our armed forces have played a vital role in keeping this country safe and running. The work that many of them have been doing in long term care homes is heroic.

I would like to thank all of our armed forces members who are helping across the country to fight COVID-19 and those armed forces currently overseas. 

The work of our armed forces is very important and oftentimes dangerous. Today, go out of your way to thank anyone you know who is an armed forces member.
Remembering D-Day today. 

June 6, 1944 was a turning point in WWII and the fight for freedom. Canada played a key role with 14,000 troops taking part in the Allied advance on Normandy. Remembering their sacrifices and honouring their legacy today.
During this Canadian Environment Week, today marks Clean Air Day. Clean Air Day is an initiative during Canadian Environment Week to specifically highlight clean air as part of a healthier environment.
 
In past years, activities such as biking or walking to work on Clean Air Day have been encouraged. However, right now it’s a little different in how all days are being recognized -- due to COVID-19. There are a number of online resources available to celebrate Clean Air Day. Check them out.
