Alta Vista amputee among War Amps volunteer award recipients

Posted on July 15, 2014

McGuinty told the young recipients that the work they are doing through The War Amps is very important.

His own mother and father established a summer camp for children for 14 years, and reserved complimentary spots every year for children with developmental and physical disabilities.

“My parents always insisted that we were not going to just have a summer camp where the kids who were coming to the camp were not representative of all of society,” said McGuinty.

“You’re making an incredible contribution,” he said before presenting the young people with certificates to mark the occasion.

“People look to this kind of effort because it makes us a better place. It makes us a better community. It makes us a better society.”

MPs call for stiffer rail safety rules

Posted on July 4, 2014

Periodic flurries of federal regulation, rule-making and reassurance followed the rail disaster last July that killed 47 people, destroyed dozens of buildings and contaminated waterways in a small Quebec town.

“We built the railway to unite the country and we built a lot of our cities and towns and municipalities around the railway,” said Liberal transport critic David McGuinty.

“If we were redesigning it today, we wouldn’t be running a lot of these materials through our urban and suburban centres.”
