On February 24 at 7 pm, we hosted a town hall on housing, with special guests Suze Morrison (MPP for Toronto Centre), Catherine McKenney (Ottawa city councillor), and Alison Trowbridge (founding member of ACORN Manor Village Tenant Union).

Our Ottawa West-Nepean NDP riding executive was kept busy Saturday night serving a spaghetti dinner to a packed hall of NDP supporters to raise funds for two by-elections in Ottawa-Vanier and Orléans. Those seats were vacated by their Liberal MPPs since the 2018 provincial election.
Both ONDP candidates, Manon Parrot in Orléans and Myriam Djilane in Ottawa-Vanier, were special guests at the event. We were also privileged to have Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath and Ottawa-Centre MPP Joel Harden on hand to address the many NDP supporters in the room.
