Open house an excellent opportunity to hear from residents
I would like to begin by thanking the members of the Centennial community who joined my team and me for our annual Fall Open House. Our open house is an excellent opportunity for us to hear from local residents about government programs, policies and services. I look forward to sharing the comments and suggestions made during our open house with my colleagues in Ottawa.
On Saturday, November 17, my team and I welcomed a number of Scarborough- Rouge Park’s newest citizens to my constituency office for a special Canadian citizenship celebration. During the celebration, my office was filled laughter, warmth and the incredible stories of a number of Canada’s newest citizens! Speaking with these proud Canadians reminded of my own journey to Canada 35 years ago. I am honoured to be part of a government that has committed itself to ensuring that all Canadians feel safe, welcome, and have an opportunity to achieve their true potential. Congratulations to those of you who attained your citizenship this year! Canada is lucky to have you!
Christmas Pancake Breakfast and Toy Drive

Team Gary will be hosting a free Pancake Breakfast for the Scarborough-Rouge Park community on Saturday, December 8 at St. Mother Teresa Catholic Academy, 40 Sewells Rd., from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. In addition to pancakes, we will have holiday crafts and activities for all those in attendance. Our Christmas Pancake Breakfast will also feature a Toy Drive to benefit children and youth in our community. Those interested in donating to our Toy Drive are asked to please bring a new, unwrapped toy.
