It is my pleasure, and indeed my honour, to represent North Vancouver as your Member of Parliament. I am also honoured to serve as Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard.
Canada’s environmental stewardship is a personal passion of mine, and I am working hard to make a meaningful contribution in this critical area. There is a lot of hard work to be done, both here in our riding and in parliament.
Your continued input is crucial as we prioritize resources, design policy and implement the platform. Given this, one of the most important responsibilities I hold as an MP is to listen to the voices of my constituents and relay those voices to Ottawa. If you have an issue you would like to discuss please do contact my office.
I look forward to your emails and welcome
opportunities to speak with neighbourhood and community groups. -Jonathan
