Mel Arnold is now on the job.
Arnold was sworn in as Conservative MP for North Okanagan-Shuswap during a ceremony in Ottawa Monday.
“I am looking forward to getting down to the serious work of representing the constituents of the North Okanagan-Shuswap,” he said.
“I am happy to report that my constituency office staff have already been able to assist with calls regarding seniors access to a Old Age Security payments, permanent resident status and training visas. Other priorities include forwarding the many concerns of local constituents regarding the diligent screening of all Canadian-bound refugees to ensure the security of all Canadians.”
Arnold has yet to secure a permanent riding office in Vernon.
