PS Lightbound visits Niagara Centre

Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance, MP Joel Lightbound, travelled to Niagara Centre on a post-Budget 2018 tour. MP Badawey had the opportunity to showcase our innovative post-secondary institutions. At Brock University, MP Badawey and PS Lightbound met with the Brock women’s wrestling team, who recently won multiple medals in competition. The wrestlers demonstrated various moves, and spoke with PS Lightbound about women in sport and why they chose Brock University. Speaking about Budget 2018, PS Lightbound highlighted how women in sport will be supported with funding!

PS Lightbound also had the opportunity to visit Niagara College’s Welland Campus. At the Walker Advanced Manufacturing Centre, PS Lightbound and MP Badawey had a discussion with women enrolled in the trade programs. This was an opportunity for these students to identify what barriers they face as women in a male dominated career.

PS Lightbound and MP Badawey also toured the welding labs to see these young women in action. Clearly talented, one student was able to show MP Badawey how to weld! Some of the tricks of the trade.

Thank you PS Lightbound for coming to Niagara Centre, and hearing first hand how Budget 2018 will help us right here at home!
