My public meetings are meant to give people a chance to tell me their concerns directly – Hyer


Bruce Hyer MPTHUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay–Superior North MP Bruce Hyer will be touring the riding in February holding public consultations in the lead-up to the upcoming 2012 federal budget.

“My public meetings are meant to give people a chance to tell me their concerns directly about how and where the government is spending their tax dollars.” said Hyer. “Should we be cutting back on Old Age Pensions? Spending money on F-35 fighter jets and megaprisons? Or should our priority be health care, small business, or retraining and EI? I want to hear constituent ideas and opinions – they will inform how I represent local concerns in Ottawa.”
