I am pleased to announce that Lisa Gretzky was acclaimed as the NDP candidate for Windsor West in the next provincial election. This should surprise no one, as she’s been an incredibly active and capable MPP. (During his introduction, Windsor District Labour Council president Brian Hogan wondered, “Lisa, when do you sleep?”) Looking forward to campaigning for her re-election!
Some photos from the event:
Just realized I never posted my photos from the campaign party at Rock Bottom. For everyone who wasn’t there (or who was but is too exhausted from campaigning to remember) – it was a great party! Good food, great venue (if a little hard to photograph due to the intimate lighting) and of course Brian Masse really rallied us!
We also heard an inspiring, and just really lovely speech by our special guest outgoing MP Joe Comartin. I am very sorry to see him going – I’m a total Comartin fan! He just projects knowledgeable compassion and humility.
Brian Masse, our federal NDP MP for the last 12 years, was nominated as Windsor West’s NDP candidate in the upcoming federal election on Friday, September 5.

The Orange Crush event went off without a hitch last night – there were chicken wings, beer, wine, applause and cheering, and a hat. Attendance was good and we raised over $2000. Pictures below.
Just a reminder that advance voting has started. Anyone who wants to avoid voting-day lineups can go here to find out where their poll is and cast an early ballot – like your humble blogger did:
The Orange Bus brought Andrea Horwath and her gang to local pub Brews and Cues Thursday for a meet and greet with Lisa Gretzky. As well as chatting with locals and talking to reporters, Andrea served and sampled some local product and then gave Lisa an impromptu pool lesson. Pictures below.
We had a delightful evening at the Walkerville Brewery – it was an informal, friendly evening of beer, pizza and animated discussion. (And a little subtle fundraising!) Pictures after the break.
