MP Larry Miller Returns to Parliament Hill for New Session

Ottawa, ON – Larry Miller, MP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, has returned to Ottawa for the beginning of a new session of Parliament.

Among his priorities for the session is the completion of his Private Members Bill, Bill C-383. This session will see Third and Final Reading of this legislation on February 8th, 2013.

At his first caucus meeting, Miller will be requesting that the Government perform forensic audits on the Attawapiskat First Nation and any other reserve in Canada that is deemed necessary to be subject to an audit. Miller also intends to voice his many constituents concerns regarding recent protests. Residents in Bruce, Grey and Owen Sound do not support unlawful protests that create blockades on public roads and obstruct local traffic.

“While I am looking forward to a new session of Parliament and for further progress on my Private Members Bill and other important legislation, I do have some concerns regarding recent protests in my riding and across Canada,” said Miller. “I respect the right for Canadians to engage in peaceful protest however, the rule of law must be respected and it should be expected that local law enforcement will ensure this happens.”

Miller looks forward to a productive session of Parliament ahead.
