Good News Only

A Message from our President

Dear colleagues,

I think it’s time we shared some good news!

In an effort to keep former Parliamentarians connected and in good spirits, we have decided to write a newsletter where only good news is shared.  And so, we would like to hear from you and know of anything that is new in your life or career.

Have you started a new job, written a book, become a grand-parent, started a garden or have any other good new experiences to share with your colleagues?

If so, please make sure you let us know by sending your stories and/or photos and we will share them with your colleagues, in our next “Only Good News Newsletter”.


To Launch our sharing project, we begin with recent good news regarding three of our colleagues. 


  • Hon. Ralph Goodale – You may have heard that he has recently been appointed Canada’s new High Commissioner to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.  What a great honour. We wish Ralph every success in his new post.
  • Hon. Murray Sinclair – was chosen as the 15th Chancellor of Queen’s University and will begin his new role on July 1.  Congratulations Murray!
  • Hon. Eleni Bakopanos – received on Monday, May 10, the Quebec’s Medal of the National Assembly for her contributions toward the promotion of women in politics.  Congratulations Eleni, for a well deserved award!
