ince my appointment as Parliamentary Assistant to Advanced Education and Technology, I havebeen honoured to be a keynote speaker at different educational events around the province.Promoting education and literacy, especially adult literacy, is a cause I am very committed to. Iam excited to continue to raise awareness while promoting the importance of Education through my speaking engagements and pieces of legislation such as Bill 4.Last sitting, I introduced Bill 30, my second piece of legislation. Bill 30, the Evidence Amendment Act, promotes alternative dispute resolution so that an apology can be made without fear of legalliability in the context of civil litigation. Thislegislation was received very positively even amongst the opposition parties, withone Member saying, “My congratulationsto the sponsor of the bill, who is steeringthis through in his first year as an MLA.That’s good work.” Another oppositionmember stated that “this is just one of those good ideas that as soon as you lookat it, you think: yep, that’s where we needto go.” I am proud that this legislation wasso readily supported and am equally proudthat Bill 4, my third piece of legislation, hasbeen introduced in the Legislature.
ransportation concerns have been a key issue affecting our constituency and I have been workinghard to get results. I am very proud that the SE leg of the Ring Road will be the next portionof the Ring Road to be completed. In addition I am pleased that I was able to get the Ministerof Transportation to re-open negotiations with land owners so the residents of Chateau Estates havebetter access to the new Ring Road.I aim to use Question Period as a tool to bring forward constituent concerns. Recently I asked theMinister of Seniors and Community Supports what the government is doing to recognize the varyingabilities of AISH clients. And it was through contact with agencies in east Calgary about changes totheir client base that I was able to ask the Minister of Housing and Urban Affairs some questions abouthomelessness in Calgary.I am always glad to meet constituents and hear your concerns directly. As always, please feel free tocontact me to discuss your concerns.Yours truly,
Manmeet S. Bhullar
