I want to sincerely thank everyone who joined us at the Toronto Centre nomination meeting yesterday – we’ve taken the first, important step in our fight to win in 2015. Now the real work begins.
I am deeply honoured to be your candidate. Thank you for entrusting me with this important challenge. And thanks to my nominators – Angela Zhu, Fred Hahn, and Pam McConnell – and to special guest speaker, Peter Tabuns.
For those unable to attend, you missed a packed room, amazing energy, and an entertaining performance by Toronto Councillors Joe Cressy and Mike Layton, who demonstrated how painless fundraising can be.
In fact, as Joe pointed out, a recent academic study shows that if you volunteer on an election campaign, you add three years to your life; if you volunteer AND donate to a campaign, you can add five years to your life.
If you have not yet done so, I hope you will consider donating, and joining our campaign to win Toronto Centre for the NDP. Think of what you can do with those extra five years.
Donations can be made securely online
or you can mail your cheque to "Toronto Centre Federal NDP" to Box 494, 31 Adelaide St E, Toronto ON M5C 2J6.
Best wishes, Linda McQuaig
