Soucy says he looks forward to trying to fill Foote’s ‘big shoes’
in his bid.
“In short, I’m ready to move forward with great energy and optimism on this adventure … I am ready to be the next member of parliament for Bonavista-Burin-Trinity.”
When asked about the fate of his alter-ego — comedic character “Snook” — Soucy joked that Snook reached out to him and told him “he would happily retire.”
As for what’s next, Soucy doesn’t know when the nomination date might be, but in the meantime, he plans to continue talking to constituents and travelling around the district.
“It’s a different process for the nomination. It’s a matter of seeking the federal Liberal members and, of course, encouraging more to become federal Liberal members.”
Soucy shakes hands with local supporters.
