Melanie Joly to run again as Liberal candidate in 2019 federal election
With the next federal election just over one year away, the Liberal Party has put forward its first nomination in Quebec.
At an event in Ahuntsic-Cartierville, Melanie Joly was nominated as the Liberal candidate for that riding.
It’s a position she has held since 2015, on top of her role as Minister of Canadian Heritage.
Sunday’s announcement marks the first of many similar events expected in the coming months.
For Joly, it was a chance to reassert her commitment to helping middle-class families.
More than ever, the politician’s role is to defend our values and what unites us, rather than what divides us. That’s exactly what I will continue to do if the citizens of #Ahuntsic #Cartierville once again put their trust in me in 2019 #cdnpoli #TeamTrudeau pic.twitter.com/PAr9BYqFfY
