I believe in one Canada for all Canadians. I believe we can and must do politics differently by engaging citizens in our democracy. We all need to work together to build our great country. No one should feel left behind. That's why I'm seeking the Liberal Party of Canada nomination in Ottawa West-Nepean.

2012-11-14-LIBERALBANNER.jpg Canadians urgently need the Liberal Party to step up to the plate, and provide the bold national leadership so glaringly absent today. It's an ambitious vision, but I have never been one to back away from a challenge. I have seen first-hand the power Canadians can have when we come together for One Canada. Join me in building a better Canada.
