Simcoe–Grey MP Dr. Kellie Leitch held a roundtable pre-budget discussion at the Alliston branch of the New Tecumseth Public Library last Friday. Topics covered by Leitch included: Job Creation (how?, grants, leaning opportunities and security); Family Credits (fitness credit doubling, Universal Child Care changes, new Arts Credit); Public Safety (global, national, provincial, changes to passport screening); Legal age in Canada to marry (currently 7 years old, to be changed to 16); Immigration (new guidelines and regulations including removal of facial coverings in certain circumstances); Public Safety (for small businesses, education, resources for prevention measures); Barbaric Crimes (things that will no longer be tolerated including forced marriage and mercy killings). Leitch is offering another roundtable discussion in Alliston on Maternal and Child Health soon. To register e-mail
