Last week DCMTL had the pleasure of welcoming federal Heritage Minister, Mélanie Joly into the DCMTL office. During her visit, she and DCMTL President Annika Panzini, discussed the revitalization of the Central District and the benefits such a project would have in the community.
Since her drop-in visit, the honourable Joly, has been awarded further ministerial duties as Prime Minister Trudeau has appointed her to chair the committee on environment, climate change and energy alongside Science Minister Kirsty Duncan.
“And in a change not mentioned in the accompanying news release from the Prime Minster’s Office, Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly and Science Minister Kirsty Duncan have been named chair and vice-chair, respectively, of the committee on environment, climate change and energy, replacing Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion and International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland.”
“I’m happy to learn that she [Joly] is going to be taking on more responsibilities, I only met her briefly but I have to say she is an inspiring person. I’m excited to see what she can do for our borough and the country.”
