Third Li­be­ral Party can­di­date clea­red

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

The Li­be­ral Party of Canada is get­ting rea­dy for its No­mi­na­tion Conven­tion in the new federal ri­ding of Vau­dreuil- Sou­langes and has clea­red a third can­di­date’s bid to re­present the ri­ding.

Vau­dreuil-Do­rion na­tive Ma­rio Bis­son­nette was au­tho­ri­zed by the party to run for the Li­be­ral no­mi­na­tion in Vau­dreuil-Sou­langes.

Bis­son­nette joins fel­low can­di­dates Louis-Charles Roy and Ri­chard Beau­mier who are al­so see­king to re­present the party in the next federal elec­tion cam­pai­gn, sche­du­led for fall 2015. A no­mi­na­tion conven­tion, ex­pec­ted to take place any time bet­ween now and the elec­tion call, will be cal­led so as to al­low mem­bers to vote for the ri­ding’s Li­be­ral can­di­date.

Bis­son­nette says his ac­cep­tance coin­ci­ded with his par­ti­ci­pa­tion in the Li­be­ral Party’s Bien­nial Conven­tion of the Que­bec Wing, which took place on May 24 and 25 in Victoriaville.

Bis­son­nette took part in the de­li­be­ra­tions and mee­tings with party of­fi­cials, mem­bers of the Li­be­ral cau­cus, other fu­ture can­di­dates and grass­roots de­le­gates.

Bis­son­nette gra­dua­ted from UQAM and Uni­ver­si­té de Sher­brooke and has wor­ked in edu­ca­tion for near­ly 25 years as a tea­cher and vice-prin­ci­pal. He was the vice-pre­sident of la So­cié­té des pro­fes­seurs d’his­toire du Qué­bec, and ser­ved as pre­sident of the Go­ver­ning Board at l’école se­con­daire de la Cité-desJeunes. Bis­son­nette was ad­di­tio­nal­ly a ju­ry mem­ber for se­ven years of the Go­ver­nor Ge­ne­ral’s Award for Ex­cel­lence in Tea­ching His­to­ry, and a mem­ber of the Li­bra­ry of Par­lia­ment’s Tea­cher Ad­vi­so­ry Com­mit­tee in Ot­ta­wa.

Du­ring the last se­ve­ral years Bis­son­nette’s po­li­ti­cal views and com­men­ta­ry have been re­gu­lar fea­tures in op-ed sec­tions of some of Mon­treal’s dai­ly news­pa­pers. He can be rea­ched at ma­rio­biss@hot­mail.fr or on is Fa­ce­book page.
