NDP Enters the Federal Election Race
New Democrats have nominated a familiar face to carry the party’s banner in the current federal election in Cumberland/Colchester.
Larry Duchesne of River Philip was nominated last night at a meeting in Masstown.
Duchesne was the NDP candidate in the last two elections in Cumberland South.
A retired teacher and journalist, Duchesne was formerly the NDP provincial leader in PEI.
Following the meeting in Masstown he said, “I’m proud to support Jagmeet Singh's progressive program of expanding medicare, a real commitment to climate change, progressive labour legislation, affordable housing, and a big investment in Child Care.”
Duchesne added, “The liberal commitment to switching to green energy is weak, and the Conservative ‘plan’ is foolhardy.”
