I am inviting local constituents to join me on the telephone to discuss budget cuts that are being rushed through the House of Commons and will have a profound effect on the Canada we know. Constituents will have an opportunity to ask me questions and provide their views on the massive budget bill, C-38.
When: Thursday, June 7, at 7pm EDT.
Where: No need to leave home for this one! This is a telephone Town Hall and will be held in the living rooms of Kingston and the Islands constituents. If you’re a registered voter in Kingston and the Islands, then I have your phone number.
How: Constituents will receive an invitation phone call at 7pm on Thursday evening. By staying on the line, this phone call will give them access to the discussion.
Details: The Conservatives’ budget bill, C-38, is referred to as the Omnibus Budget Bill because of its 400 pages of broad changes to the government. Citizens across the country are voicing anger and concern over cuts and changes to social services, correctional services, environment safety, research and development, and science and technology. These changes are not being properly separated for debate and study in the House of Commons and are being fast-tracked for the purpose of avoiding accountability to taxpayers. This telephone town hall is to for MP Ted Hsu to gauge the feeling of his electorate on C-38.
This town hall service is being provided at no cost to the taxpayer; it is provided to the people of Kingston and the Islands by the local Federal Liberal Party Association.
Member of Parliament Ted Hsu, Kingston and the Islands serves as the Liberal critic for Science and Technology, and the Liberal critic for Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern and Northern Ontario.
