PETERBOROUGH, June 2: Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke NDP candidate Ethel LaValley met with NDP leader Andrea Horwath here, along with local NDP candidate Sean Conway.
LaValley went to lend support to Conway, who is no relation to the former Renfrew North MPP and who is in a very tight race in Peterborough-Kawartha, a riding that has historically predicted the winners of Ontario elections repeatedly.
“Only Andrea Horwath and the NDP can stop Doug Ford’s cuts and privatization,” said LaValley, in the wake of Kathleen Wynne’s desperate plea for former Liberal voters to return to the fold. “Votes for Liberals DO NOT result in a minority – they result in a Ford majority,” she said.
Andrea Horwath said that,
“By asking for a minority, Kathleen Wynne is asking to hold onto power. People have already said they do not want that.”
Ethel LaValley has been excited by the feedback she gets on the campaign trail.
“Something special is happening in Ontario,” she said. “Andrea is inviting everyone to be a part of it. Better health care. More affordability for everyday people. She’s saying: join us. Let’s get it done. I’m with her.”
