Congratulations to Jagmeet Singh! And a heartfelt thank you to everyone who ran, everyone who shared their ideas, everyone who volunteered on behalf of one of the leadership campaigns or helped the whole thing go off so smoothly.
Lisa Gretzky was sworn in as our MPP on Wednesday, along with the rest of the Legislature. She and our other two local MPPs will play a prominent role in the NDP shadow cabinet. Lisa’s been given the portfolio of community safety and correctional services, while Percy Hatfield and Taras Natyshak get infrastructure plus environment, and labour, respectively. Congratulations all!
Lisa Gretzky is projected to take Windsor West, as part of an NDP sweep of southwestern Ontario – Percy Hatfield and Taras Natyshak are also projected to win. CBC story here.
Congratulations, Lisa! And congratulations to all the hardworking volunteers in Windsor West – WE DID IT!
Riding election projections have been all over the place, but a Forum poll that surveyed 18 key ridings directly, using candidate names, showed Lisa edging ahead of Teresa in Windsor West. We are doing it – don’t let up!

A local elected official will announce they are seeking the provincial nomination for the NDP in Windsor West. The announcement will be made at Brews & Cues located at: 5663 Ojibway Pkwy, Windsor, ON – the site of the (now former) Windsor Raceway.
We have chosen this location in order to support a small business impacted by a terrible public policy decision from the current Liberal Government. We hope to see you all in attendance.
