MP REPORT: TAKING THE NORTH'S PUBLIC SAFETY CONCERNS TO OTTAWA

When you call the police during an emergency situation you shouldn’t pay, be put on hold or hung up on. But, that’s exactly what has been happening in our region.

As MP for our region, I have spoken out in support of local residents who have experienced exactly that. 

Imagine phoning to report a serious crime in progress and being put on hold for up to 20 minutes. 

That is why I asked that the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security Of the House of Commons to ask Geri Dixon and Alicia Bedford to speak directly about what happened to them.
