TABLE OF CONTENTS

Justin Trudeau is the hope. We are the hard work.
Over a year ago when we elected Justin Trudeau as
our leader, Liberals adopted a new slogan, “Hope and Hard
Work”. Liberals are now assembling a team of candidates all
across Canada. In NDG-Westmount, we are working hard
with our very own star candidate, Marc Garneau.
So far this summer: we’ve knocked on thousands of
doors, called hundreds of people, held a BBQ for youth and
participated in Canada Day celebrations in Montreal West.
We have a brand new logo, which you can see above.
Thank you Jiasi Liu for the design.
There’s still time to get involved before the leaves
change colour. On August 17
th
, Liberals will be marching in
the Montreal Pride Parade with Marc Garneau and Justin
Trudeau. This is one of the most exciting and most colourful
events of the year.
If that’s not your type of activity, why not join a
committee? Why not host a fundraiser? Why not canvass
with our candidate? Why not fill out our survey?
Justin Trudeau is the hope. We are the hard work.

As a journalist, I have attended hundreds
of press conferences and political events. I have
conducted dozens of interviews with people
suffering and hungry for change.
I really thought that journalism was not
only the most beautiful job in the world, but
principally the most useful... that by delivering
news to people, I was helping them.
But after several years behind my
computer keyboard, it is with humility that I
acknowledge the fact that I was wrong. I realize
today that political engagement is the basis of
change.
I recently decided to join the ranks of the
Liberal Party of Canada. I chose to support and
assist Marc Garneau in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce—
Westmount. This riding is what Canada is all
about: the presence of an undeniable ethnic
plurality.
Why the Liberal Party of Canada?
Primarily because the LPC is the only party that
seems to have understood what politics is all
about. It’s not about how much power you have
or how much money you can spend to solve your
problem. It’s about meeting people and
demonstrating respect by listening to them.
Like any young man my age, I am very
active on social media. As is Justin Trudeau who
has totally inspired me. He is everywhere, all the
time. He is not afraid to listen to people, to
shake their hands, to go discover the different
regions that comprise Canada.
If journalism has taught me anything, it
is our patchwork of people that form Canada is
the world of tomorrow, a world without borders
or racial divides. The LPC is the only party on
the federal political scene that understands this.
I can’t wait to meet every one of you,
residents of the NDG-Westmount riding, while
working with Marc Garneau in the upcoming
months!


Why I joined the Liberal Party of Canada

"There's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation."
Who can forget this iconic statement in Canadian politics? These words, uttered not even 50
years ago by none other than Pierre Elliott Trudeau, have laid the groundwork for a drastic change in
the relationship between elected officials and Canadians.
In 1967, then Justice Minister Pierre Trudeau stood up for the defence of sexual minorities. This
was a risky initiative at the time. This declaration caused a tidal wave of controversy that rippled across
the entire nation. Trudeau's Omnibus Bill, brought issues like abortion and sexual diversity to the table,
changing the political and social landscape in Canada forever.
In 1969, Liberals amended the Criminal Code of Canada to decriminalize 'homosexual acts'
performed in private between consenting parties. Only in 2005, not even a decade ago, equal marriage
was legalized.
