Greg Rickford, our local Conservative candidate in the upcoming Federal election, provided us with a brief history of his record over the last 4 years. 
Rickford went on to highlight some of the items in the Conservative platform such as the club membership fees as a charitable donations tax credit.
During the next four years, the Government of Canada will contribute two dollars for every dollar raised by Rotary Foundation Canada in support of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s Endgame Strategy, to a maximum contribution of $12 million. The funds will be provided to UNICEF to support the goal of eradicating polio worldwide by 2018.
The party also plans to provide assistance to the resource sector and infrastructure.
Greg then answered a number of questions from Rotarians.
