An enthsiastic crowd of party faithful were at the W. G. Johnson Centre to choose thier candidate for the May 2nd Federal Election. Donna Reid, who sits on Cambridge Council, gave a rousing speech about democracy being under attack by Harper.
The audience was split between supporters of the two contenders, but, in a suprise move, candidate Joe Silva withdrew from the race and threw his support behind Susan Galvao.
Here is Susan’s bio from the municipl election.
A love of people and the environment led me to study geography at university. A healthy environment and economics can go hand in hand.
I ran my own successful business while retaining interest in public issues, only leaving it to focus more attention on family and community.
I have been happily married for 10 years and have two beautiful children.
I also have a long list of humanitarian and community achievements.
