The new Democratic candidate in the Laurier-Saint-Marie ride in Montreal received last-minute support from Quebec songwriter Richard Desjardins.
‘A few separate voices [le libéral Steven Guilbeault] Candidate Nima Mashouf. A little help would give the Laurier-Saint-Marie ride a powerful Member of Parliament, an epidemiologist, a conscience, and a future for what the peoples of today expect: a breath of humanity,” Mr. Desjardins stated in a press release, just hours before the poll.
NSI Mashof ran a second time in this ride under the New Democratic Party (NDP) colors to try to take the spot currently held by liberal Stephen Gilbolt.
“I can only be extremely grateful for the support of Richard Desjardins,” the new Democrat said in an email sent to QMI. “I can assure Richard Desjardins, Andre Pelisle, Anne-Marie Saint Cerny and all the environmentally and climate-stricken people who have supported me during this campaign that they will see me fight back.”
Laurier – Sainte-Marie was also a New Democracy, from 2011 to 2019, under former member Helen Laverdere, who held the seat of former Caucus leader of Quebec, Gilles Ducebe, at the helm of this constituency for more than 20 years.
Naama Mashouf and Stephen Gilbolt are opposing the Conservative Party’s Ronan Reich of Canada candidates. Marie-Yves Lynn Michel, of the Quebecoa block; Jean-Michel Lavarin of the Canadian Green Party. and Daniel Tanguyi of the Canadian People’s Party during this race.
