The Parkview News would like to congratulate the successful candidates in the resent Federal Election who represent areas the Parkview News distributes in. Darrell Samson (Member of Parliament for Sackville-Preston-Chezzetcook) and Lena Metlege Diab (Member of Parliament for Halifax West) along with Andy Fillmore (MP for Halifax) and Rick Perkins (MP for South Shore St. Margaret’s) which takes in a very small portion of our distribution area. We are proud to say two of the winners have been contributing to the Parkview News for many years.
In addition to congratulating these successful candidates, I would like to congratulate and thank all the candidates who put their names on the ballet in the resent Federal election. While election campaigns can and often are bitterly contested at the national level, here in HRM, the campaigns were conducted with a great deal of decorum and respect.
As a past-candidate I know how grueling and time-consuming campaigns are. Both during the campaign and in the months leading up to the call of the election when a lot of the organizing and fundraising is done. To all those who ran, to their supporters and volunteers, I take my hat off and salute you for putting your name on the ballot and for helping candidates with their campaigns!
