When tragedies such as the tragic killing of George Floyd seize the public attention, we are offered an opportunity.
It's an opportunity to respond by offering real solutions and real reform that make life better for everyone, and ensure that these tragedies do not happen again.
A society that seeks to instill good laws, must have an institution which can enforce them in a fair and just manner.
In Canada, calls to “defund the police” have begun to grow, echoing similar demands being put forward by activists in the United States following the horrific and tragic death of George Floyd.
**A note from MP Jeremy Patzer (Cypress Hills - Grasslands)**
As Westerners, we know that the sense of alienation felt across our region is nearing a crisis point.
It's more than a frustration. Many of us are seeing anger take root as decision after decision is made in Ottawa by a Government that does not seem to understand - or care about - the critical role the West plays in keeping Canada's economy strong.
This morning, hundreds of thousands of Canadians gathered in front of their computers to partake in worship services due to COVID-19 health restrictions.
As a whole, Canadians have followed our political leaders and health officials throughout this crisis and its devastation on our economy.
**A note from MP Tamara Jansen (Cloverdale - Langley City)**
I was proud to be one of the first-time Conservative candidates who won in 2019, knocking off the Liberal MP in Cloverdale-Langley City.
While it was exciting to win my seat, it was disappointing to lose the election.
A note from MP Richard Bragdon (Tobique-Mactaquac)
As we go through our second Leadership race in three years, the focus for us as Conservative Party members should not just be on who can win the Leadership, but who can win the next election.
Members from coast to coast to coast have all said it or thought it at some point: we can’t keep doing the same thing as a Party if we want to win the next election.
31 years ago today, the Chinese Communist Party violently crushed student-led demonstrations in Tiananmen Square.
The students were demanding government accountability, democracy, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. These are values that we as Canadians hold dear.
