Okanagan Shuswap NDP - For Immediate Release

Paul Dewar in Vernon Tuesday
Paul Dewar, one of eight candidates running for leader of the Federal NDP, is in Vernon Tuesday to build grass roots support for his campaign. The federal NDP will choose a new leader March 24th by a one-member, one-vote balloting system.

Paul Dewar is a three-time MP for Ottawa Centre. As the son of a former Ottawa Mayor Marion Dewar, he grew up in progressive and community based politics. His previous experience comes from a combination of time as an international aid worker in Nicaragua, his work as a public school teacher (specializing in kids with special needs), and as a teacher union Vice-President. Before running for leadership he served as the NDP critic for Foreign Affairs - focusing particularly on advocating for women's equality in war zones. Since 2009 he has served as the Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Prevention of Genocide and Other Crimes Against Humanity.

“At this low moment in our political life, Dewar reminds us what public affairs should be all about.”

I have been a resident of Coldstream since 1976. I have had 15 years of experience on Council, 3 years as Mayor. As a current Councillor I am working to achieve fair water and sewer rates and to ensure that taxpayers get fair treatment. The current direction regarding water supply is unsustainable and I am doing all I can to get the most cost effective water supply possible.
