Yelich, Lynne

Saskatchewan, Blackstrap, Conservative Party of Canada

Lynne Yelich is the Conservative Member of Parliament for Blackstrap, and was first elected in the General Election, November 27, 2000 with an overwhelming majority.

Born March 24, 1953, Lynne and Matt, her husband of 32 years, have made their home on a farm near Kenaston, Saskatchewan. They have two daughters, Elaina and Ivana.

Lynneís political involvement prior to her election was marked by her participation with the Reform Party in its formative years. She worked for seven years as the Executive Assistant for former Blackstrap Member of Parliament before deciding to seek election following his retirement from federal politics in 2000.

Since elected, Lynne has been a tireless worker in both her riding and parliamentary roles.

She looks forward to her annual winter tour where she is able to visit and host town halls in Saskatoon and rural communities throughout the riding of Blackstrap.

Lynneís constituents are her first priority. She involves herself with their specific needs and champions their causes through the presentation of petitions and by challenging Ministers through debate in the House of Commons.
