The federal election has started and Ottawa West-Nepean NDP is pleased to announce its candidate will be Yavar Hameed.

Yavar was unopposed for the nomination and was acclaimed as our candidate on Friday. Yavar has worked in Ottawa as a human rights lawyer for the last 20 years fighting for basic rights for people to live free from discrimination, to enjoy fair terms of work and to organize for justice in their communities.

Though COVID protocols prevent us from gathering physically for a big kick-off event where we could all meet Yavar, there will be online opportunities to connect with him and lots of small open-air events.

Jagmeet has done a terrific job fighting for Canadians during the pandemic. Let’s send him back to Parliament with an even stronger team. Yavar would be an astounding addition to our caucus. Let’s elect Yavar in OWN!!

This will be a short campaign, run under unusual circumstances. However, some things will stay the same. The campaign will need volunteers, sign locations and donations. If you can help in any way; if you can put a sign on your lawn; if you can donate, visit the Campaign Website.

In 2018, Chandra came within 175 votes of winning Ottawa West-Nepean. Unfortunately, the riding has not been well served by the Ford government and residents are eager for change.

Special guest and Leader of the Ontario NDP, Andrea Horwath, praised Chandra Pasma for her energy, her innovative ideas and commitment to the community. “She's an amazing candidate. And with your help, she’s going to be the next MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean. “
