Flyer a useful tool for MP

Editor:

I thank Paul Johnston for asking about information, which I circulated to households in the riding in December (Coast Reporter letters, Dec. 27).

The flyer(“Community Sectors: Building Our Future” conveyed my commitment to work not only with individuals, but also with community sectors, which are key components in building and maintaining a successful democratic structure in our riding.

The community sectors are groups of people linked by some common theme, such as region, culture, demography or interest. My ability effectively to represent our vast, diverse riding depends to a large degree on the passion and commitment of our people, who day after day step up to communicate their needs, needs which may be for the benefit not only of themselves or their communities but also of the riding, the province or the country.

My style of representation focuses on constant interaction with such groups and dedicated staff and volunteers who assist me in the necessary two-way communication involved.

The results have been recognized nationally, most recently by Samara, a non-partisan charitable organization that works to improve political participation in Canada, which ranked our website number one among Conservative MP sites, out of 162, and one of the top 17 in the country: www.samaracanada.com/fun-stuff/members-of-
parliament-websites-infographic/top-mp-websites
.

The website, where you can see the flyer on Community Sectors and other things (www.johnweston.ca) focuses in text, photos and video on the people we represent, which is, I believe, a major reason for its high rating.

While I’m proud of our website’s national ranking, the key is the focus on the people I represent: it’s you — not just the scenery — that make us “The Most Beautiful Place on Earth.”

John Weston, member of Parliament, West Vancouver - Sunshine Coast - Sea to Sky Country
