NDP PRO­MISE CAN­DI­DATE FOR GPR

Vision (Canada) - - Actualites - News -

A se­nior of­fi­cial for On­ta­rio’s NDP pro­mises the par­ty will have a can­di­date’s name on the June elec­tion bal­lot for Glen­gar­ry-Prescott-Russell.

Kar­la Web­ber- Gal­la­gher, exe­cu­tive di­rec­tor for NDP On­ta­rio, confir­med, in a phone in­ter­view March 22, that the par­ty ex­pects to have can­di­dates confir­med in eve­ry ri­ding, be­fore the of­fi­cial writ drops for the pro­vin­cial elec­tion sche­du­led for June.

“Yes, there ab­so­lu­te­ly will be a can­di­date,” Web­ber-Gal­la­gher said, re­gar­ding NDP plans for the Glen­gar­ry-Press­cottRus­sell ri­ding. “We’re ex­pec­ting to field a ve­ry strong can­di­date.”

At present there is no confir­med NDp can­di­date for the GPR. Web­ber-Gal­la­gher said the par­ty is wor­king “on a case by case ba­sis” to confirm can­di­dates for all ri­dings not al­rea­dy co­ve­red by an in­cumbent NDP MPP.

The of­fi­cial start for the pro­vin­cial elec­tion cam­pai­gn per­iod is May 9. The elec­tion it­self is June 7.—Gregg Chamberlain
