Newly Elected Sarah Campbell Attends First Caucus Meeting


KENORA – Newly elected Kenora MPP Sarah Campbell says she “Has wasted no time getting down to business”. After spending the early part of her week getting her constituency offices in Dryden, Fort Frances and Kenora up and running, the newly elected MPP for Kenora-Rainy River attended her first caucus meeting Thursday, Oct. 13 in Toronto.

“It was a great meeting. I think we accomplished a lot and set a clear direction for the upcoming legislative session,” Campbell enthused. “Voters sent us to Queen’s Park with a clear mandate to work for positive change that will make life more affordable and that’s the agenda we plan to put forward in the coming months.”

Campbell says “Her caucus remains focused on their promises to remove the HST off of home heating and hydro and take other key steps to reduce the cost of living across the province, but particularly in the north”.

“I was sent to Queen’s Park with a very clear mandate from the voters of Kenora-Rainy River,” states Campbell. “The cost of living is far too high, especially in the north, and voters want a real plan of action for bringing jobs back to our communities and we want to see access to essential services like healthcare improved.”

With a minority government Campbell says all parties will have to work together to make parliament work. “The mandate all of us were given is to come back to Queen’s Park and work together to make government work for all of the people of this province. The NDP is committed to doing that and we’re committed to improving people’s lives by bringing positive change to Queen’s Park,” she states.

With her first caucus meeting under her belt Campbell’s next big step will be her swearing in ceremony, which is scheduled for Oct. 27 in Toronto. A date for the Legislative Assembly to commence sitting has not yet been set.

In the riding, Campbell’s constituency offices are now up and running. Currently the offices are located at 32B Princess St. in Dryden (223-6456), Kenora 300 McClellan Ave in Kenora (467-2415) and 140 Fourth St. West in Fort Frances (274-7619) and are open Monday to Friday from 1-5:00 p.m.
