Glen Motz, MP for the Medicine Hat–Cardston-Warner and the deputy shadow minister for public safety of the Conservative party, will be making a couple of stops in the South Okanagan on Aug. 12 together with Helena Konanz.
Konanz is running as the Conservative candidate for the South Okanagan – West Kootenay district.
The shadow minister plans to highlight the issue of crime in the region as a major election issue, a topic which is part of candidate Helena Konanz’ platform in the upcoming election.
In a released statement Konzanz said, “Justin Trudeau’s irresponsible approach has tied the hands of both our local municipalities and the hardworking RCMP. … A Conservative government will enact tough new measures against the gangs who are behind the drug trade. The drug trade which is driving the local epidemics of addiction and property crime.”
Konanz and MP Motz will hold an open session with coffee and donuts at Konanz’ campaign office at 483 Main St. from 9 until 10:30 a.m. ￼From 2 to 3 p.m. Konanz and MP Motz will be at Midici’s Gelataria and Coffee Shop, in Oliver, located at 522 Fairview Rd.
