Ministerial Statements are usually about matter of State.

Burlington’s Member of Parliament has broken new ground just about everywhere she has walked – so announcing the birth of her son shouldn’t be any different.

Today, Minister Karina Gould, Member of Parliament for Burlington, issued the following statement:

KarinaFamily + Oliver

Oliver, Karina and Alberto. The husband looks more tired than anyone else. Congratulations to all of them.

My husband, Alberto, and I were thrilled to finally meet our son, Oliver, earlier this week. We are grateful to be able to say that everyone is happy and healthy.

I would like to extend a special thank you to the Burlington & Area Midwives – particularly the amazing Lucia, Sarah, Diane and Paige – and the nursing staff at Jo Brant Hospital for their care and support during my pregnancy and delivery.

I will be spending time with my family now, but I look forward to returning to work when I am ready to resume my duties as Canada’s Minister of Democratic Institutions. The Democratic Institutions portfolio will be in the good hands of Minister Scott Brison, assisted by Parliamentary Secretary Andy Fillmore, while I am on leave. Burlington constituents should continue to contact my MP office for any assistance or services they require.

As we join so many other Canadian parents who juggle the responsibilities of career and family, Alberto and I want to thank everyone for their kind words and support.
