Cloverdale-Langley City’s new MP spoke in the House of Commons for the first time Friday, thanking residents and his family for their support as he made a short statement.
John Aldag – the first-ever MP to represent the new riding – told members of the House that the riding is in the traditional territory of the Coast Salish people.
A 32-year federal employee with Parks Canada, Aldag said his new position is a continuation of a career in public service.
He said the top concerns of constituents are the high costs of living and stagnant earnings, transit, and poverty, homelessness and addiction.
“I’m excited to see this government’s plan to create real change addresses these issues,” he said.
“I look forward to addressing the concerns of my riding in this house and working with all members to improve our communities and our country.”
