CORNWALL – A retired astronaut and the first Canadian to go into space will be the main speaker for a local Liberal fundraising dinner.

Marc Garneau is the Liberal MP for Westmount-Ville-Marie and the current candidate for the riding of Notre-Dame-de-Grace-Westmount in the 2015 federal election.

He will be speaking at the 2014 annual Maple Leaf Dinner, a $125 a plate fundraising dinner for the SD&SG Federal Liberal Riding Association.

Garneau ran for the Liberal leadership in 2012 but withdrew his bid a month before the final vote and put his support behind Justin Trudeau in the spring of 2013.

The dinner is at 6 p.m. on Thursday Nov. 20 at the Best Western in Cornwall.
