Tony Clement looks back on 2017 and identifies priorities for 2018 and beyond
Making sure Muskokans have a voice in the House of Commons continues to be a priority for Tony Clement. The Parry Sound-Muskoka MP says one of his biggest honours of 2017 was representing the district in Ottawa, and making sure some of the issues people feel strongly about are front and centre in Parliament. When looking back at the last year, Clement says serving the Conservative Party of Canada by sitting on the front bench as Public Services and Procurement Critic, as well as being appointed to a new committee on security and intelligence review are among his highlights.
Clement says his role as an MP is a two way street.
Clement says there have been some low lights for him in 2017, citing broken election promises from the Trudeau Liberals.
When it comes to 2018 priorities for Clement, he says positive solutions to the current economic issues will be top of mind.
He says a lot of the Conservative platform will focus on taxes and economic issues, to help small businesses that are facing tax hikes. He says security issues and military spending will also be on the agenda.
When it comes to the 2019 election, the Conservatives announced today Clement will be the Parry Sound-Muskoka candidate once again, for the fifth time. Clement says it’s great to have that support of the community, and he’s looking forward to a positive vision that he can lay out for the riding once the election hits.
