Members in good standing of the Federal NDP as of April 23 and who live in the riding are eligible to vote at this meeting. All are welcome to attend.
The Ottawa West-Nepean NDP are excited that Angella MacEwen has agreed to stand as their candidate for the upcoming federal election. Angella is the senior economist for the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and a policy fellow with the Broadbent Institute.
