Holidays are here
2023 was full of exciting new opportunities as well as difficult challenges for Canadians. This Christmas, let us remember how good it is to be able to be with friends and family. We can all look forward to 2024 in the hopes that it will bring ongoing signs of Improvement.
However, this season can be particularly difficult for those who may find themselves alone or unable to afford the holiday experience for their children that they had hoped for. Please take the time to check on your neighbours or others you know who might be struggling.
I would like to extend my best to everyone and their families and wish you all a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones.
Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas! Joyeux Noël! Happy Kwanzaa!
All the best,
Darrell Samson, MP
