The federal Liberal Party caucus will meet on P.E.I. this week to discuss issues that may arise in the fall session of Parliament.
Seventy-one MPs and senators will meet over three days at the Brudenell River Resort, starting Tuesday.
"We spend our summer out in the constituency, dealing with constituents, finding out the issues, and then we meet as a caucus, and put a program in place in order to bring the problems that are facing constituents to the floor of the House of Commons," said Cardigan MP Lawrence MacAulay.
MacAulay expects those issues will include employment insurance changes, cuts to public service jobs, the lobster fishery and the economy.
"Of course, the fishery is an ongoing issue. EI getting slashed, and all the public service jobs going. When you take hundreds of jobs out of the economy, people realize that it's going to hurt the economy, and I think anybody that's running a business of any kind is quite concerned," he said.
