Supporting Progressive Candidates

In every election the people we elect are often more important than the party. We need people whom we can trust will actually stand up for us in the new Parliament. I live in Ottawa Centre and have a great MP, Paul Dewar who I support for re-election. And I am confident he will be re-elected. But regardless of the shape and configuration of the next Parliament, Paul will need strong and progressive people around him. If you already have a progessive MP then please work to re-elect them. But they will need help.

Here are a few candidates who have a track record of supporting social justice issues and deserve our support in any way that we can. I know there are others. Let me know your choices and we’ll keep adding to the list.

Peggy Nash Parkdale-High Park

Nycole Turmel Hull-Aylmer

Mark Rogers Kings-Hants

Jinny Sims Newton-North Delta

Dennis Lewycky Winnipeg South Centre

Robert Chisholm Darthmouth-Cole Harbour

Nettie Wiebe Saskatoon-Rosetown-Biggar

Tania Cameron Kenora
