Niagara MP fears confrontation with China in near future, calls on federal government to safeguard Canadian interests now

As Parliament prepares to recess for the summer months, there is one pervasive issue that is occupying much of the time and attention of house members: Chinese interference in Canadian elections. Dean Allison serves as Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for Niagara West.

“As we’ve looked at all the information, it has become clear that China has a lot more influence in our domestic affairs than we like to talk about,” Allison shared in a recent sit-down with The Niagara Independent. “And we’ve let it get way out of control.”

Mayors respond to Niagara Health reducing hours at urgent care centres in Fort Erie, Port Colborne

Local

Earlier this week, Niagara Health announced that, starting next month, operational hours at its Fort Erie and Port Colborne urgent care sites would be cut in half.

As president and CEO Lynn Guerriero described on Wednesday, Niagara Health is facing “unprecedented” staffing shortages and the region’s three emergency departments in St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, and Welland need additional support to maintain operational capacity.

“This decision was not easy, and I understand it is unwelcome news for some,” the CEO said.
