QUEEN’S PARK – In the Ontario Legislature this afternoon, Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli encouraged families across Ontario to open their hearts and give to local food drives and charities this Christmas season. Text of Fedeli’s statement is below:

“Speaker, if the weather is any indication, the Christmas season is upon us.

Last weekend Patty and I had the pleasure of joining Santa and Mrs. Claus on their float in the annual North Bay Santa Claus Parade.

And let me tell you, this year’s parade was the best, but also one of the coldest we’ve seen.

Yet the families of North Bay bundled up, as they always do, and came together in a celebration of friendship, love, and community. 

I rise today to encourage families across Ontario to celebrate with that same spirit this holiday season.

This is a busy time of year for everyone, but now, more than ever, it is important for us to remember the importance of community.

As we plan our Christmas parties, family dinners, and gift giving, I ask all Ontarians to open your hearts and give to your local food drives and charities. 

In celebrating the family and the warmth that surrounds us all, please take the time to share that same warmth with those less fortunate in your communities.

Together we can ensure that everyone in our province can stay warm and healthy this holiday season.

If we all dig a little deeper and give a little more, we can all celebrate a merry Christmas.
