We welcome Spring and the new life it brings. As the days get warmer, we share in the possibilities that each day brings. Today’s seeds are tomorrow’s flowers. Take time for yourself and for each other.
March saw several federal government investments in Kitchener-Conestoga. I proudly announced that through FedDev, Wilmot’s B-W Feed & Seed received a $2 million investment to support their scale-up and expansion of production and storage. The Township of Woolwich received more than $1.6 million in federal funding towards improvements to the Woolwich Memorial Centre and the Weigel Stormwater Management Drain. These investments are supporting local businesses, local families, creating jobs and helping to strengthen our economy.
This month, the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival will celebrate virtually with an online interactive website. Although we would all prefer in-person events, there are many ways we can support local and partake in the weekend’s festivities.
Many festivals and events have moved online. The participation and support of our community have been incredible. From January’s Bring on the Sunshine event, March’s New Dundee’s reverse Easter Egg-stravaganza, and now the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival, these virtual events are signs of the resilience and strength of our community.
We continue to deliver more than a million vaccine doses to the provinces each week, and more Canadians are getting vaccinated every day. We must continue to do everything we can to slow the spread of COVID-19 by following provincial and local public health guidelines, wearing masks, and practicing physical distancing.
My office has worked with a record number of constituents this year, and I am proud to help meet the needs of individuals, families, and businesses in Kitchener-Conestoga. I am honoured to bring your voices, experiences, and feedback to Ottawa to help our government support you.
Moving forward I will continue to work tirelessly and advocate on your behalf. From day one, I’ve had conversations with constituents and business owners to ensure you have the support you need. To connect with me and discuss your priorities, I encourage you to email my office Tim.Louis@parl.gc.ca or call us at 519-578-3777.
Take care, stay safe.
