Working in Mr. Lalonde’s office continues to be extremely exciting, busy and interesting! I have been spending a lot of time both attending meetings with him, working on publications and responding to constituents. I am truly enjoying all of the work that I have been able to do in his office. His staff, both in Toronto and in his riding continue to be extremely helpful and dedicated resources and I am learning a lot from all of them about political process, tact and diplomacy. I am continually amazed at all of the hard work Mr. Lalonde puts in every single day. Did you know that every single year he spends both Christmas and New Year ’s Day visiting every single person who is living in either a nursing home or retirement home in his riding? He is an extremely hard-working member with a devoted staff and I am extremely honoured to be a part of it.
