Local Member of Parliament Guy Lauzon today launched his annual federal pre-budget consultation process in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry.
He will once again be soliciting feedback from constituents and local stakeholders about how the federal government can continue to foster a positive economic climate in the coming years.
“I am always really impressed by both the volume and the quality of feedback that we receive locally. There are some great grassroots ideas out there,” said MP Lauzon. “Whether it is emailing us or attending our informal breakfast roundtable, it is very helpful for me as our community’s federal voice.”
Lauzon’s government caucus colleagues are soliciting pre-budget submissions using the following five key questions:
• Government is focused on creating jobs and economic growth. What can Government do to help businesses grow, increase trade and investment, and encourage the private sector to hire new employees?
• The Government is committed to keeping Canada’s finances balanced and on a sustainable track, including by paying down the debt. This builds upon our Government’s belief in respecting taxpayers’ dollars. In what other areas can we find ways to make spending more efficient and effective?
• How can the Government help Canadians with the costs of living and raising a family?
• What can the Government do to ensure Canadians are obtaining the skills necessary for the jobs of tomorrow?
• Are there investments that can be made to build stronger communities and keep our streets safe?
In addition to email or letter submissions, Lauzon is also hosting two stakeholder roundtables in Cornwall and Morrisburg this year.
The meetings will take place on Monday, November 24th (McIntosh Inn, Morrisburg) and Tuesday, November 25th (Ramada Inn, Cornwall).
Both meetings run from 8-9 a.m. and are open, with a RSVP, to residents and stakeholders of Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry. Contact Francine Lepage at (613) 937-3331 or email@example.com to confirm attendance by Friday, November 21st.
