Red Deer-Mountain View MP Prepared For Parliament To Resume In December

The Conservatives will be taking what they have heard throughout the federal election campaign to Ottawa, according to Red Deer-Mountain View MP Earl Dreeshen. Parliament is set to resume in early December.

December 5th will be a busy day for M-Ps.

That is when the House of Commons will reconvene for the first time since the October election, a new Speaker of the House will be chosen and the minority Liberal government will release its throne speech.

The Prime Minister's Office made the announcement on Tuesday, November 12th shortly before Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with Opposition leader Andrew Scheer.

Scheer had wanted the House of Commons to begin sitting November 25th.

Red Deer-Mountain View MP Earl Dreeshen says the Conservatives will be taking solutions to Ottawa.

Meantime, Dreeshen says there is concern with the amount of crop that is now under snow.

After a meeting with the Prime Minister this week, Scheer notes it is up to Trudeau to find common ground to make this parliament last.

Scheer says the two spoke about a number of specific priorities the Conservatives addressed during the election campaign, including the need to complete the Trans Mountain pipeline and broad-based tax cuts.
