Dear Friends,
Thank you for taking the time to read my August community newsletter!
I have been visiting great farmers' markets this summer with camera in hand to promote my
#celebratelocalfood campaign! I would like to use my August Newsletter to share some great moments from the markets. Please read on to learn more about some places I have visited.
There are still a few weeks of summer left and I intend on making the most of them! Make sure to check out my
upcoming events page to learn where I will be across the riding.
Like what you see? Be sure to visit the
photo gallery on my website or follow me on Instagram to check out more great pictures from around the riding!

AT THE MARKETS: Where the MP tent has been set up across Kootenay-Columbia

At the Salmo Valley Farmers Market on Thursday July 27, I met Brendan, owner of Salix and Sedge Farm. In an addition to selling at the market, his produce is available at the Kootenay Co-op and through a weekly farm box program.

I had the opportunity to meet many locals at the Revelstoke Local Food Initiative Market on Saturday, July 29. I heard about concerns relating to seniors issues and affordable housing. I look forward to bringing these issues up in Parliament come September!

It was a busy day under the orange tent at the Fernie Mountain Market on Sunday August 13. I received many entries for my local food basket draw and gave out many Canada flags for the Bibbity Bobbity Boo Children's Festival. Thank you for everyone who came by!
