Last Week around H-L&A
This week I knocked on doors in Stirling -- it was a rainy day but I had some great conversations!
Trying to stay dry in Stirling
On Thursday last week I was in North Hastings where I knocked on doors (again in the rain) and chatted with people in Bancroft. Thanks to the people I talked to for sharing your opinions.

That evening we had a full house and lots of interest at our meet-and-greet at Bancroft’s Wattle and Daub Café. Thanks so much to all who came out; I appreciated the chance to speak to folks in North Hastings and to listen to your suggestions and concerns and hear about the unique challenges facing rural communities in the northern part of our riding.

I hope you all had a good Mother’s Day weekend--I’m so thankful for all of the wonderful women in my life, and was happy to have a chance to celebrate my mom and my wife last weekend.

I wish everyone a safe and happy Victoria Day weekend!
CHANGE of DATE!
Because of an unavoidable change in his schedule, MP Ed Fast will be visiting our riding on Wednesday June 6, rather than on June 13 as previously announced. Mr. Fast is the MP for Abbotsford and the Shadow Minister for Environment and Climate Change and we are looking forward to hearing about our party’s positive and effective plans for conservation and protecting our environment! We will be hosting a reception for Mr. Fast at the Lions Club in Napanee from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Stay tuned for more details, and invite a friend--especially one who is concerned about environmental protections and climate change.

We have secured campaign office space in Napanee and will be opening sometime around Canada Day--stay tuned! Of course there will be lots of office volunteer positions available; email us at info@electSloan.ca if you're interested in helping with the campaign. We have a job for every skill set - there is a lot to be done!

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 H-L&A, 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.
