They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well the one above is worth 14,443 voices.
Yesterday morning, in the Aboriginal Room of Centre Block on Parliament Hill, Liberal MPs and Senators gathered for our weekly Caucus meeting.
And as you can see in the photo, your voice was heard.
Speaking on behalf of the 14,443 people who took our Caucus Wants to Know survey, I took my Caucus colleagues through a preliminary look at the opinions you shared with us.
But this is just the beginning. In the coming weeks, we’re going to follow up with respondents to drill further down into Liberals’ views on foreign ownership of Canada’s natural resources sector.
And we’re going to share the over 3,000 Question Period questions you submitted with our Parliamentary Critics so that your voices can be heard beyond the Caucus room, in the hallowed hall of the House of Commons.
But for now, let’s celebrate. This survey is proof we’re learning to exchange ideas as a movement. To collaborate electronically on a mass scale. And change how we do politics in Ottawa.
So please share this photo and let your friends know by posting “When Liberals speak, our voice is heard in the Liberal Caucus room on Parliament Hill.”
