Laurie Hawn (Edmonton Centre, Conservative Party of Canada)

Hi Russell,

Sorry for the tardy reponse. As you might imagine, I'm geeting hundreds of e-mails and I try to get to them personally.

I'm afraid that you're asking questions in an area that I am unqualified to answer. I'm sure that this query has gone to other Conservative MPs or candidates who can offer a more qualified response.

Cheers,
Laurie Hawn

When I asked if I could post the above to the blog, she added:

Hi Russell,

I am open-minded and ready to be educated in any area where I lack expertise. You may post as you wish.

Cheers,
Laurie
