Biography

from their website
Dan Campbell and Justin Trudeau are the only team with a real plan to grow our economy, protect people’s health, protect a clean environment, and make life better for families right here in our community.

Dan Campbell and Justin Trudeau are the only team with a real plan to grow our economy, protect people’s health, protect a clean environment, and make life better for families right here in our community.

While Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives are focused on going backward with cuts to vital services that families rely on, Liberals will keep moving forward with bold action to create good new jobs, invest in the middle class and the most vulnerable, and ensure that everyone has a real and fair chance at success.

Together, we can elect a dedicated Liberal Member of Parliament to work with Justin Trudeau to build a better future for everyone.
