Cornwall - Aug. 30, 2011 - Over 200 people including a Provincial Minister were in attendance Tuesday night for the grand opening of SDSG Provincial Liberal Candidate Mark A MacDonald's campaign office.
People in the crowd were energetic, and many were holding MacDonald signs, and some were wearing Liberal t-shirts. Before the speeches commenced, people in the crowd were enjoying live music and a barbeque.
Daniel F. Donati who is the President of the SDSG Provincial Liberal Riding association was pleased with the turnout, and how well MacDonald's campaign is going. “It's moving forward. Mark is doing a lot of out of town appearances, meeting constituents in rural areas”.
When Mark MacDonald addressed the crowd he made it clear, “It's not about me. Its about what we can do together”. Mark is proud of the Liberal record on health care, the environment, and the economy. “Ontario is the economic engine that drives Canada”.
MPP Bob Chiarelli, who was appointed Minister of Infrastructure in 2010, was on hand to address the crowd. “This is a winning campaign”, he said, and the crowd erupted in cheers and clapping.
Chiarelli also talked about the Ontario Liberal's economic record. “We are leading the world in economic recovery”. He also talked about the HST. According to Chiarelli, “We decreased corporate tax, decreased small business tax, and the HST is a boom for small businesses in Ontario”.
Chiarelli also talked about the importance of stimulus funding to restore jobs in the province. He said, “Tim Hudak voted no to stimulus funding”. He made a parallel to Hudak voting no to stimulus funding, to him voting no for stimulus money that went into St. Lawrence College and into the multi-sports complex in Cornwall.
Chiarelli is confident of MacDonald's chance of winning. “Mark is of this community and he can speak to this community from his heart”.
