TILSON RE-ELECTED AS PRESIDENT OF THE CANADA-EUROPE PARLIAMENTARY ASSOCIATION FOR SEVENTH TIME
OTTAWA, ON – David Tilson, Member of Parliament for Dufferin-Caledon, was re-elected as President of the all-Party Canada-Europe Parliamentary Association for the seventh consecutive time on Tuesday, February 23, 2015, at the Association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Ottawa.
“I’m very pleased to be President of the Canada-Europe Parliamentary Association once again. The role performed by the Association on behalf of the Canadian Parliament is considerable and given the many global economic and security issues we face today, working with our European counterparts will become more and more important.”
Mr. Tilson has served as President of the Canada-Europe Parliamentary Association since March 2008 and has also been a member of the Executive Committee since 2004. The Association aims to facilitate exchanges between parliamentarians in Canada, and representatives from various European institutions with the objectives of promoting Canadian interests and fostering mutual cooperation.
In his role as President of the Association, Mr. Tilson leads Canadian delegations traveling to Europe, as he did last week when he and members of the Association travelled to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) in Vienna, Austria.
