CORNWALL — Cornwall City Councillor, Bernadette Clement announced this morning her run for the federal Liberal Party of Canada nomination in the riding of Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry.
“I cannot stand by as we prepare to decide the future of Canada in the coming October 19, 2015 election. I’ve talked to voters throughout the riding. They tell me they want to see a government that truly brings people together instead of dividing our country, and one that addresses our needs, from infrastructure to health care to the environment,” stated Clement at a breakfast announcement Wednesday morning.
“I feel I can help make a positive contribution as a real voice for Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry in Parliament.”
This is Clement’s second run for the federal nomination in SD&SG. Clement secured the party’s nomination in 2011, placing second in that year’s General Election to Conservative candidate, Guy Lauzon.
There are two other declared candidates for the Liberal Party nomination in SD&SG, Patricia Pichette and Corey Kalsi.
