Battle River — Crowfoot MP Damien Kurek has been appointed to the standing committee on Public Safety and National Security (SECU).
“I am very excited to work on this committee and to address the issues impacting Battle River – Crowfoot and the concerns affecting rural Albertans,” Kurek said in a news release.
“In addition to the public safety and law enforcement oversight role the committee plays, there are a number of issues that will be a priority in the coming weeks and months including rural crime, the Liberal gun grab, and issues at our borders.”
Kurek says he’s eager to work with the Shadow Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Shannon Stubbs, to “address the risks of foreign influence in Canada and the smuggling of illegal weapons at the border.”
“I am looking forward to working with MP Damien Kurek to address and examine safety issues that affect all Canadians; from the firearms ban, border security, and first responders — including rural crime which hits home for each of us as representatives of rural ridings,” said Stubbs.
“Canada’s Conservatives will stand with Canadians, propose common-sense solutions to the challenges we face, stand up for the rights of all Canadians, and ensure border issues are addressed responsibly,” stated the release.
