Kenora MP Eric Melillo is looking forward to getting back to the riding. He talked about what he and his fellow conservatives have been working on since government resumed following the election.

"Our caucus has been calling on the government to reverse their cuts to military healthcare, we have been calling for a sensible market based climate plan, standing up for law abiding firearms owners," he said.

He talked about their priorities.

"Of course we've been fighting each and every day for Canadians, in order to have a government that operates with lower taxes and responsible government spending under these uncertain economic times," he said.

Melillo won a seat on Ottawa in October, and just last week Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer announced his resignation, jump-starting the race for a new party leader.
