Arnold also expressed gratitude for the support he received in the House of Commons for his Private Member Bill (PMB) C-291, which advocates for changing the term “child pornography” to “child sexual abuse and exploitation material” in the Criminal Code. This change is an important step in recognizing and combating sexual abuse and exploitation of children.
Looking ahead, Arnold acknowledges that it is impossible to know what the future holds. However, some predictable changes have already taken place, such as inflation, rising interest rates, and a growing cost of living. These are the effects of significant government spending over the past several years. While relief may seem like a distant hope for those affected by rising costs, Arnold remains committed to working towards solutions.
In conclusion, Arnold emphasizes the importance of community support and resilience during challenging times. The outpouring of support in the face of the wildfires and the ongoing efforts to protect against abuse and exploitation are what define our communities. As we move forward, let us continue to work together, support one another, and strive for a brighter future.
