Last Week around H-L&A
This past week, my family and I had a chance to visit Varty Lake (north of Newburgh). What a great spot, and just one of many hidden treasures in our riding.

On Thursday I attended the Bancroft Area Forestry Industry Association Annual General Meeting. It was a great day of learning and meeting folks in our riding who work in this growing industry. Forests are an engine for economic growth and environmental sustainability, and wood products could be a huge source of income for rural communities. Thanks to Rob Keen and Tim Gray of Forests Ontario for showing me around!

On the Easter weekend, my family and I spent time at church, and also visited an Earth Day Summit in Mississauga with extended family. Presenters from around the world taught us about bees, sustainable farming and lots more. As a Conservative I am committed to conserving and protecting our beautiful world through sensible, practical and concrete action.

Canvassing this week
We’ll be knocking on doors in Tamworth this Sunday afternoon from 2:00 to 5:00. We’ll meet in the parking lot of the Stone Mills Recreation Centre (arena) at 713 Addington Street. Please join us and help us get our positive message out. Remember, no experience is necessary; we will give you training on our simple canvassing strategy, and you will be paired up with an experienced campaigner. All are welcome! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can make it!
it's just over a week until our riding welcomes MP Michelle Rempel! Join us on Friday, May 3 from 6pm - 9pm at the Royal Canadian Legion in Napanee, 26 Mill St East.
Ms. Rempel is the Conservative MP for Calgary Nose Hill and the Shadow Minister for Citizenship and Immigration. She has been extremely dynamic and effective in Question Period: one of the issues on which she has been most active is border security, and the need to preserve a Canadian system of immigration that is orderly, fair and compassionate. During her visit, Ms Rempel plans to meet with several community groups that work with refugees.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door and can be purchased at www.electsloan.ca/events. (This event is being run on a cost-recovery basis.)
We’re pleased to announce that Ed Fast will be visiting our riding on June 13! Ed Fast is the MP for Abbotsford and the Shadow Minister for Environment and Climate Change. We are looking forward to hearing about the Party’s positive and effective plans for conservation and protecting our environment! Stay tuned for more details.
Join the Victory Club!
To reach our goal of being election-ready, we are launching Victory Club, a program that will go a long way towards reaching our fundraising target and will give us the necessary tools to run a successful campaign. Our target can be reached if only 250 people donate $400. A $400 donation costs you only $100 out-of-pocket after the generous tax credit! And remember, every eligible member of your household can donate separately and join our Victory Club. We recently had a husband and wife donate $400 each--$800 for the campaign and only $200 out-of-pocket for them! See below for donation info.
As always, we are grateful for your support for this Campaign and we will keep working together to spread our positive Conservative vision for Canada and for Hastings—Lennox & Addington. Donations of any amount are always welcome: When you give to our local Conservative association (up to the 2019 max. of $1600), that money stays right here in HLA, and up to 75% of your donation could be eligible for a tax credit on your 2019 tax return. We can accept donations from Canadian individuals only (not from corporations or businesses). Cheques should be made payable to H-L&A Conservative Association and sent to PO Box 111, Madoc, Ontario, K0K 2K0. We cannot accept cash or credit card information through the mail; however, you can donate online at: www.electsloan.ca/donate.
