Bernard Valcourt visits Yellowknife

Conservative MP Bernard Valcourt visited Yellowknife on August 12, and while he was there took time out to enjoy breakfast at the Explorer Hotel with a room full of NWT Conservative Association members and supporters.

He highlighted the successes the Conservative government has enjoyed in keeping the Canadian economy strong and the envy of the world during both the recession as well as the still fragile recovery. He also highlighted the fact that transfer payments to provinces and territories were not sacrificed to achieve these results and in fact had increased under Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s leadership.

Those in attendance enjoyed the opportunity to meet Mr. Valcourt and hear him speak about the government’s Northern Strategy and the importance placed on all three territories by the Prime Minister.
