The Edmonton Leduc barbecue was very well attended and a great success! The weather was beautiful and the location in Leduc was very nice.
James Rajotte stood out in the hot sun from noon to 2:00, talking to his constituents without even a break for a burger. He gets votes from all political groups because he is one of the hardest working MP's of all political stripes. Every polling station last election showed more than 50% support for James, and that includes the new areas in the riding with many people who have moved here from other provinces. He is even respected by Liberal MP's. We met Liberal MP Shawn Murphy when we were in PEI last summer and he had nothing but praise for James.
James also chairs the most powerful committee in Parliament, the finance committee, and has even kept NDP Mulclair in line, not a small feat by any means.
If there is an election this summer, you can bet that James Rajotte will again be the MP from Edmonton Leduc, thanks to all the people of the riding, not just Conservatives. He serves everyone in the riding with fairness and care for the issues.
My only disappointment was that I didn't meet Jen. Jen, if you were there, I was the one handing out the ice cream!
