While parliament has been on a break, Souris-Moose Mountain MP Dr. Robert Kitchen has been busy in the riding.

"I've managed to get out into Moosomin and out into the western parts as well as the eastern parts of the riding."

Kitchen said that he has taken the time to hear from his constituents, and he says the issues that are brought up to him are always varied.

"Topics sometimes are all over the map, because they are issues that are important to those individuals, and I like to meet with people as best I can."

Parliament will resume its next sitting on Monday, January 30th, in Ottawa.
