Blood Donation Challenge

December 12, 2017

Mr. Speaker, as many of the members of the House may be aware, a blood donation is known to be a lifesaving gift. That is why I am thrilled to share that just recently I gave my 100th blood donation at Canadian Blood Services in Guelph. I was honoured to be joined by members of the Guelph community who also gave blood and Ward 1 Studios that recorded the big day. Its fantastic video is on my Facebook page, and I encourage everyone to check it out. Members may have noticed I rose in the House with a new red lapel pin to mark my 100th donation. I challenge my hon. members to get one too. In this season of charity, I encourage all Canadians to consider donating blood and giving the gift of life. It is easy. Simply call 1-888-to donate, or visit blood.ca to book an appointment. Remember, it is in us to give, and we have the power to save a life.
