Reid to run again

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

More than ever con­vinced of the enor­mous po­ten­tial of the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC, whether in the eco­nomic, so­cial or tourist sec­tor, MNA Pierre Reid has con­firmed his in­ten­tion to de­fend, once again, the colours of the Que­bec Lib­eral Party in the Or­ford rid­ing dur­ing the next elec­tion.

“I am still mo­ti­vated by the same de­sire to serve the cit­i­zens of the Or­ford rid­ing at the Na­tional As­sem­bly,” said Mr. Reid. “I sin­cerely be­lieve that the pop­u­la­tion de­serves more than what the gov­ern­ment of the Parti Que­be­cois is of­fer­ing since Septem­ber of 2012 and this is an ad­di­tional mo­ti­va­tion for me to re­main in­volved.”

As he has demon­strated in the past with files such as the ex­pan­sion of the Ma­gog hos­pi­tal, the new sport cen­tre at La Ruche, the re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion of Stanstead and the de­vel­op­ment of sport tourism, Pierre Reid be­lieves that the Or­ford rid­ing de­serves more than the im­mo­bil­ity pro­posed by the Parti Que­be­cois.

“The clumsy gov­er­nance of the PQ for the last year has made us lose 40,000 jobs in Que­bec and hasn’t helped us here in this rid­ing. The re­cent an­nounce­ments of the PQ gov­ern­ment are not re­as­sur­ing be­cause they are far-off prom­ises made with money that doesn’t ex­ist,” con­tin­ued Mr. Reid. “The Or­ford pop­u­la­tion has a right to a gov­ern­ment that will put the econ­omy back on track, and that’s what our Lib­eral team is propos­ing with Philippe Couil­lard.”

Elected as the Lib­eral MNA of Or­ford in 2003, and re-elected in 2007, 2008 and 2012, Mr. Reid is ready to de­fend his ideas and val­ues if the gov­ern­ment of Pauline Marois pro­vokes elec­tions in the com­ing weeks.
