Well, these past two weeks have been a whirlwind of activity.

Working in the legislature, heading up to Sudbury to talk
about the North, and participating at the leader’s debate
hosted by the Ontario New Democratic Youth at this weekend’s
Toronto conference.




And many thanks to the workers at the Hamilton and District
Labour Council for their endorsement.

Next we continue on the campaign trail to Kingston, Cornwall
and Dundas.

Below, I share with you some articles of our media coverage.

Andrea, great work in politics! I found your site after visiting Wilf's site.

I noticed you have an interest in Long-Term Care. I have blogged extensively about this. If you want any info or resources, I have put some research in in that area. I worked on the Aging at Home strategy in Muskoka. With the recent big news items (Dec., 2008) I have been trying post comments that tell the real story about home care.
