December – MLA Graham Sucha’s Report

Calgary Shaw

A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I want to take this opportunity to wish all residents of Calgary Shaw a wonderful holiday season. Christmas is a reminder to be thankful for our families, friends, and the great communities we live in. I personally am so grateful to serve as your provincial representative in the Legislature. This past year I’ve had the honour of meeting with hundreds of individuals and community organizations in order to bring their concerns to the government. It has been my pleasure to do so and I look forward to 2018 when we can continue to work together to strengthen our province.

In the Legislature

The Government of Alberta continues to work hard drafting legislation in preparation for the legalization of cannabis. When the federal government introduced legislation to legalize cannabis next summer across the country, it left many decisions about adapting to the federal legislation to provinces and territories. I want to reassure all constituents that I share Alberta’s priorities of keeping cannabis out of the hands of youth, protecting safety on roads, in workplaces, and in public spaces, and protecting public health. As a father of 3 small children this is extremely important to me and I want to thank all of you who shared your opinions and expertise on the issue. Public consultation has closed and is now being reviewed in order to introduce legislation early next year. However, if you have any further feedback or questions, contact my office and I will be happy to communicate it to the Ministry of Justice.

As always my office can provide Notary Public and Commissioner for Oaths services, but it’s a good idea to make an appointment well ahead of when you need the document signed. If you need a few provincial pins just connect with my constituency assistants, Michelle and Katharina. They are happy to help you with any issues you may have and can be reached at 403-256-8969.
