Residents in Rosetown got a chance to chat with local MP Kelly Block yesterday. 

Block, MP for the Carton Trail and Eagle Creek constituency and Shadow Minister for Transportation, has been making the rounds through local towns for her spring tour. To kick off the tour this week she stopped in Vanscoy, Harris, Rosetown and Herschel yesterday. 

During her visits, Block met with local residents to hear some of their concerns.

She said some of the main things she's heard so far in the tour have concerned rural crime and what more can be done to protect rural citizens. 

"You know I think more can always be done and I think that's what we're hearing right now," Block said. "more needs to be done to ensure the safety of rural Canadians. It's up to us as elected representatives to create that opportunity to have those conversations. That's really what I'm asking folks now who are saying they are concerned is, 'so what can they do?', just starting that conversation."

She talked about some of the other concerns that have been brought up to her so far. 

"Certainly the carbon tax continues to be a concern for folks," Block said. "and we actually talked a fair amount about veterans affairs and the issues that are facing veterans right now."

Block said looking back on the last year, she's happy with what her party has managed to accomplish.

"Certainly from the perspective of a conservative caucus," Block said. "there was some legislation that we were able to keep from being passed and I think we are being an effective opposition when it comes to making sure that are constituents and Canadians understand what's at stake when certain initiatives are undertaken in the house of commons."

MP Block will continue her tour throughout the week, with a stop in Biggar today from 10:30 to 11:30.
