Letter to the Editor – Stéphane Groulx of Cornwall Ontario on Mario Leclerc & Jack Layton’s Strong Campaign

I would like to take the time to say that Mario Leclerc ran a hard, strong campaign and I am proud to have had the opportunity to work alongside Mario at the grassroots level here in Stormont, Dundas, and South Glengarry.

I will not forget the lessons I’ve learned, and the experiences I have gained during this campaign. I look forward to continued work with the NDP here in my hometown and wherever I end up residing depending on what my future holds.

Each and every New Democrat should be proud to have been a part of our best showing in Canadian history and although such gains are bitter-sweet in a Conservative majority, I am confident that as Official opposition we’ll be able to keep the government in check and working in the best interests of all Canadians; not just the 40% of those that voted for them.  Hopefully the Conservatives will not push a hard-right agenda out of respect to the roughly 60% of those who did not cast a ballot for the Conservative party.
At the local level a congratulations goes out to Mr. Lauzon, although I strongly disagree with your politics, the residents here in SD&SG have spoken. Please work in the best interests of all of your constituents, including those like myself who casted a ballot for a candidate of another party. Best wishes and good luck to you, may we all hold you accountable for your actions in the House of Commons.
