It was one month ago today that I was bestowed the honour of becoming elected as your Member of Parliament for Okanagan-Coquihalla. It's hard for me to put into words what the past few weeks have been like. Prime Minister Harper said it best yesterday- that the first time one enters the House of Commons as an elected representative, it is a truly humbling and inspiring moment. I am both proud and excited to be the Member of Parliament for Okanagan-Coquihalla and also to serve under the leadership of Prime Minister Harper.
I have and continue to meet some really wonderful people in Ottawa from all walks of life. Many of these people have heard of our beautiful riding and have many questions about Okanagan-Coquihalla, which of course I am happy to answer. I am also learning a lot from those that I meet. I continue to sense a level of excitement on our collective potential within in our new Government.
In addition to his weekly MP Report. the Dan in Ottawa blog is another resource for residents of Okanagan-Coquihalla. Chronicling Dan’s personal experiences as he travels to Ottawa and throughout the riding as your MP.
