Newsletter for April 2023

I was thrilled to welcome Immigration Minister Sean Fraser to our riding in April, as he made an important announcement regarding affordability measures for Canadian families. It was an honor to host him here, and I look forward to continuing to work with him to ensure that our community is welcoming and inclusive for all.

Additionally, I was delighted to have former Prime Minister Jean Chrétien visit the University of Calgary for an engaging and enlightening discussion. It was an honor to have him visit our constituency office as well, and I am grateful for his contributions to our country.

The Transport committee, of which I am a member, has passed an important report on holding airlines accountable for delays. This is an issue that has been of great concern to many of you, and I am proud to have been a part of this effort to bring about change and better serve Canadian travellers.

I have been grateful to celebrate Easter, Ramadan, and Vaisakhi with many of you in our community, as well as with my colleagues in Ottawa. It has been a wonderful opportunity to come together, share in each other's traditions, and strengthen our bonds as a community.

As always, I am committed to working hard on your behalf. Please do not hesitate to contact me or my office with any questions or concerns you may have.

Federal Workers Strike

The recent public sector workers strike* has affected thousands of Canadians. As your Member of Parliament, I understand the concerns and frustrations that you may have as a result of this, especially when experiencing delays from federal government departments on issues like passports and taxes.

First and foremost, I want to emphasize that our Government is committed to finding a solution that is fair and reasonable for all parties involved. I believe that it is important to listen to the concerns of our hardworking public sector workers who provide essential services to our community.

At the same time, we must also consider the impact that a prolonged strike will have on our community, especially delays in vital services.

Minister Mona Fortier, President of the Treasury Board, has fully engaged in finding a reasonable agreement that balances the interests of public sector workers and Canadian taxpayers. Through constructive dialogue, she has been working towards a resolution that promotes fairness and mutual benefit for all involved. As your federal representative, I will always advocate for your interests. My office will be there to support you in finding resolution to any federal matters you are struggling with.

I want to hear your thoughts and perspectives on this challenging issue. Please send me a message at George.Chahal@parl.gc.ca, or complete the Have Your Say on my website. I look forward to reading and understanding your concerns and raising them with my government colleagues in the House of Commons.

Thank you for reading my April 2023 update. As always, stay in touch, and until next month!

George Chahal, M.P.
