MP looks for feedback on issues from constituents in Northwest
The most recent home mailer from Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Taylor Bachrach has started to arrive in mailboxes across the Northwest and in the summer edition, the Member of Parliament is looking for some guidance from residents on a number issues of concern.
The information pamphlet which puts some focus on COVID and the measures in place towards it also outlines some of the federal programs that have been launched in recent months.
The main focus though appears to be consultation, with the MP noting how the feedback he receives will help guide his efforts in the nations capital.
As your MP, it's my job to take your concerns to Ottawa. Hearing directly about the issues you and your family are facing helps me represent you better in Parliament.
Please take a moment to fill out and mail back this survey. No postage is required, and your time is very much appreciated. Your answers will allow me to better represent our communities' interests in Ottawa -- MP Taylor Bachrach in his July home mailer to constituents
