STATEMENT OF SUPPORT FOR FEDERAL NDP LEADER JAGMEET SINGH
A letter circulated by the Green Party of Canada falsely reported former provincial New Brunswick NDP candidates leaving the NDP and joining the Green Party. Four NB NDP 2018 candidates who were added to this list without their consent Jean-Maurice Landry, Hailey Duffy, Madison Duffy, Betty Weir made the following statement:
“We are disappointed that our names were added to this letter without our consent.
We were proud to represent the New Brunswick NDP in the last election as candidates, and continue to be proud to support the NB NDP – both provincially and federally.
We were shocked that news report stated otherwise. And shocked at statements that the people of New Brunswick would have a hard time voting for Jagmeet for who he is. We don’t believe that to be true. We think the people of New Brunswick deserve more credit and know them to be open and loving people.
We fully support the New Brusnwick NDP, the Federal NDP, and our Federal Leader Jagmeet Singh.”
In addition please find attached a statement issued by former NB NDP 2018 candidate Francis Duguay.
Interim leader Mackenzie Thomason will be available today for comment at our office 108-924 Prospect Street at 6:30pm
