By and large technology greatly assists the work that I do as a Member of Parliament and I can only imagine how differently our offices would have run some three decades ago- such as they did when well known Kaleden veteran Fred King was the local Member. However at times technology can also create challenges – such was the case last Friday when I heard from a local constituent who encountered difficulty contacting my office via the toll free phone number.
Thanks to this constituent for making me aware of this issue as we have since discovered that a change of provider regarding the House of Commons phone system has created some difficulty for callers using the toll free phone number. While my capable staff have created a temporary solution until this is rectified with the provider, if you encounter any difficulties or for any reason are unable to reach my office via the toll free number, please call us at (250) 770-4480 or alternatively please send me an email at Dan.Albas@parl.gc.ca with your contact number and a best time when you can be reached and I will be happy to call you directly.
