The Foothills Conservative EDA

The CPC Foothills EDA represents the grassroots efforts of the Conservative Party of Canada in the Alberta Foothills. “EDA” stands for Electoral District Association, defined by Elections Canada as an association of members of a political party in an electoral district. As the CPC Foothills EDA, we work with voters and Conservative members in the Foothills to ensure that their voices are heard by the Conservative Party of Canada and represented in the House of Commons.

Meet John Barlow

During his tenure as the Member of Parliament for Foothills, John has served his constituents as the Shadow Minister for Interprovincial Trade, Workforce Development and Labour, Agriculture and Agriculture-Food and most recently as a member of the Standing Committee on Health where he played a critical role in the debate over the Federal pandemic response, vaccine procurement and impact on our mental health. Locally, John established the Foothills Business Recovery Taskforce to provide resources, business planning, networking and a one-stop shop for federal and provincial information.

Through hard work and determination Conservative MPs pushed for important changes to the wage subsidy, emergency business support and passed vital legislation to exempt the carbon tax from farm fuels and tax changes to make it easier for business owners and farmers to pass their legacy onto their children. John’s own Private Members Bill C-205, which passed through committee, will establish punitive fines for protestors and organizations who break onto private property endangering livestock and the mental health of farm families.

First and foremost, John’s top priority is being the voice of Foothills. His voting record and interventions in the House of Commons clearly demonstrates his commitment and dedication to his constituents, his support for rural and Southern Albertan way of life, businesses and industries without compromise.

“Having the confidence and trust of the constituents of Foothills is something of which I am extremely proud and earning that trust and support every day is of the utmost importance to myself and my team.”
