It's been an eventful summer.

Kenora MP Bob Nault has been keeping busy over the summer, visiting with communities, and speaking to his constituents about what issues are important to them.

“In the summer, you get back into the communities and re-connect. I've had a great opportunity to do that this summer. I've spent my entire summer in the riding connecting with communities. I'm excited about the fact that I was able to do so, and renew those relationships, and I was able to build new ones. Overall, I'm very pleased with this summer, and I hope to repeat it for a number of years,” he said.

One of Nault's highlights over the summer, was a number of high-priority funding announcements for housing, safe water, electricity access, and infrastructure improvements for communities.

“The infrastructure dollars that are coming into the Kenora riding, over $5 million, those are going to make a difference in people's lives. Sewer, water, roads, those are the basics that people expect,” he said.

Nault noted that he will be in Ottawa next week for the return of Parliament.

“I'm going to head back to Ottawa with a lot of work to do, and a lot of files that people have given me that we're going to start working on,” he said.

Nault says that Canada's economic growth has been strong recently. Statistics Canada recently revealed the economy exceeded second-quarter expectations, growing at an annual rate of 4.5 per cent. Nault says that it's an accomplishment not seen in the last 15 years.
