NDP Leader proud of Sudbury campaign

Toronto:  NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said she is proud the campaign the NDP ran in Sudbury and will continue to work hard for the Northeast.

“We ran a great campaign based on honesty, integrity and hard work.  While we didn’t get the result we would have liked, New Democrats have good reason to be proud,” said Horwath.  “Suzanne Shawbonquit showed grit and determination and she impressed all of Sudbury with her intelligence, her heart, and her integrity.  Suzanne is role model for women and First Nations people across our province.  She’s a rare talent, a class act, and a friend.”

Horwath said New Democrats will keep the promise they made during the campaign by making sure that Sudbury and the North aren’t taken for granted. 

“We will continue to fight for better healthcare and a PET scanner for the Northeast, work hard for good-paying jobs, fight against gas price gouging, and proper winter road maintenance on our highways.  New Democrats will continue to be there for the people of Sudbury,” said Horwath.
