Local MP supports Mulcair campaign in Estrie
The co- presidents of the Quebec campaign of Thomas Mulcair, Francois Lapointe (deputy of Montmagny – L’islet – Kamouraska – Riviere du Loup) and Marie-claude Morin (deputy of SaintHyacinthe – Bagot) will be in the Estrie region tomorrow, January 19th, to encourage Townshippers to become members of the NDP and to vote for the next leader of the party.
Mr. Lapointe and Ms. Morin will be accompanied by many deputies from the region, notably Jean Rousseau from the Compton-stanstead riding.
In order to be able to vote for the next leader of the NDP on March 24th, 2012, Quebecers must become members of the NDP before February 18th, 2012.
“I support Thomas Mulcair and I believe that he is the man with the experience and potential to bring the new Democratic Party to power,” commented Mr. Rousseau. “Therefore I encourage the citizens of the Compton-stanstead riding to become members of the NDP and also to help choose the next leader of the party,” he added.
