THUNDER BAY – Conservative candidate Richard Harvey has started the process of getting into campaign mode over the holiday season. The Thunder Bay Superior North Conservative is opening his campaign office and hosting an event in Thunder Bay.
Campaign Co-ordinator Scott Hobbs states, “I hope your holiday season has been good to you. I am just passing on a note that the Richard Harvey campaign will be having a volunteer signup/recruitment meeting on Tuesday January 4, 2011 at 7:00 pm at our new campaign office. The office is located at 115 Johnson Avenue (just off of Bay Street). Please come out and sign up for what will be the largest, most dynamic campaign team the conservatives have ever assembled in Northwestern Ontario!”
The note shared on Facebook by Hobbs, who was the co-campaign manager of his father’s successful campaign for Mayor of Thunder Bay.
Harvey states, “Only a strong economy makes it possible to care for those who cannot care for themselves. Stephen Harper has done a masterful job with Canadian economy during this recent global downturn. Canada is the envy of the world with the strongest economy, and fastest recovery of any nation in the world”.
The Conservatives in kicking their campaign into higher gear may be signalling that a spring election could be in the works. With a fall election already in the works for Ontario, many people are figuring that a spring federal election could be coming.
Liberal candidate Yves Fricot has invested time in door knocking and getting the word out about what the Liberal Party stands for in the region.
NDP MP Bruce Hyer will likely be standing on his record, which includes several private members bills.
All federal candidates are invited to share their thoughts and ideas with you on NNL with Candidate’s Ledgers which offer you the opportunity to find out more about the candidates, and their parties.
