Working for You

October 9th, 2012

The other week, there was a vote in the House of Commons on Motion 312: Whether or not Parliament needs to look at redefining the law about when human life begins.  While the issue itself was important enough, one of the most interesting things was that MPs didn’t necessarily support their leader.

In fact, a majority of Conservative MPs went against Prime Minister Harper’s strongly expressed view on this issue.  This vote illustrates a reality in the House of Commons that has often been forgotten.  Members of Parliament don’t work for the leader of their respective party. They work for their constituents.

In a parliamentary system like Canada’s, Prime Minister Harper is not my boss, he is the first among equals. The constituents of Saskatoon-Humboldt are my bosses.  Whether you agree with my votes or disagree with my votes, you need to let me know because I really do work for you.

I’m Brad Trost, your Member of Parliament in Saskatoon-Humboldt. You can reach my office in Saskatoon at 975-6133. Feel free to drop by my two offices for a visit: Saskatoon (Monday to Friday) or Humboldt (Tuesday and Wednesday). I always appreciate your feedback.
