Horton Township, ON – Cheryl Gallant, MP Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, with provincial MPP John Yakabuski also in attendance (sharing hosting responsibilities), held another successful New Year’s Levee for the constituents of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke on Sunday. This year’s levee at the Horton Township Community Hall enjoyed the usual attendance despite winter temperatures.
“The levee is my way of saying thank-you to the people of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke for their support,” stated Cheryl Gallant, MP. “The New Years’ Levee is a tradition I started after being first elected. It was great to have John join me after he was elected and we have worked together on the event ever since.”
“The hot topic for many attendees is the outrageous increase in energy bills by the Liberal Party of Ontario to pay for the failed so-called ‘Green Energy Act’. The only thing stopping higher increases in energy bills is our strong Conservative Government in Ottawa,” observed MP Gallant. “I was shocked when a couple showed me an Ontario Hydro electricity bill for their home of over $4,000. If the price of electricity keeps rising, people will lose their homes.”
“It is no secret the architect of the failed provincial energy policy now sits as the chief advisor to the junior opposition party in Ottawa. To the detriment of all Canadians, that failed policy attacks reliable nuclear power. On behalf of the 2700 employees and their families of AECL, I will continue to promote safe, affordable, green house gas free nuclear power,” stated Cheryl Gallant, MP.
“Thank-you for the privilege of serving as your Member of Parliament for the last five terms. It is your issues and your support that allow me to effectively represent your interests in Ottawa. It is only with your support that I am able to be your representative in the Parliament of Canada,” concluded Cheryl Gallant.
