KAMLOOPS — With the House of Commons resuming at the end of the month, Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod is gathering comments and concerns from her constituents. 

McLeod is currently on her annual winter rural tour, attempting to visit each community before returning to Ottawa.

"I really enjoy the opportunity to connect with people throughout the riding, and connect with our mayors and councils," McLeod said. "It really sort of sets my path as I go back to Ottawa, understanding what people are thinking on the ground."

McLeod was in 100 Mile House on Friday, and while she says there are still some wildfire issues to be addressed, there are also concerns about increasing debt. 

"At a number of my meetings people were concerned about the fiscal situation, the fact that our debt is growing at a rate they're uncomfortable with." 

The House resumes sitting on January 29th.
