Ottawa – Last week MP Brad Vis ( Conservative MP for Mission—Matsqui—Fraser Canyon) and Abbotsford MP Ed Fast, blasted Ottawa media over questions on Conservative leadership and the expulsion of Sen. Denise Batters, and not asking about the local flood damage.

On Wednesday, Vis released a statement following the Emergency Debate regarding floods in British Columbia.

“Late last night, I stood in the House of Commons and called on the federal government to work with partners to rebuild the Village of Lytton, to fund critical infrastructure and to empower First Nations to have more control over disaster management.

“For the majority of my tenure as a Member of Parliament, my staff and I have been tackling and managing crisis after crisis. From a record summer of wildfires leading to the near destruction of Lytton to the current flood recovery efforts, there is a significant amount of work to be done.

“In a direct exchange with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, he provided assurance that the federal government will be there as a partner in rebuilding Lytton and fund other recovery efforts across the province from the recent disasters.

“I cannot be more thankful for the thousands of people, all across my riding and Canada who have come to aid and show their sympathy for our corner of this beautiful country. In a Team Canada approach, I will continue to work collaboratively with all members of the opposition to address these issues.

“I am squarely focused on getting the resources British Columbia needs.
