Current MP opens Cowichan-Malahat-Langford campaign office

MacGregor vowing to return to Ottawa for another four years

NDP MP and candidate Alistair MacGregor’s Duncan campaign office opened Sunday amid much fanfare.

MacGregor is vying for a return to his post as the Cowichan-Malahat-Langford representative for another four years.

“My friend Alistair represents the best of our party,” said special guest Doug Routley, MLA for Nanaimo-North Cowichan. “He fights for the rights of everyday Canadians. He understands the importance of a fair and just economy. As a farmer, he knows only too well the fight against climate change.”

Routley also spoke about the NDP’s lengthy history as champions for social justice and rights that have benefited Canadians through the labour movement and universal health care.

“If you think that climate change is the defining issue of 21st century, you have a place in this campaign,” said MacGregor. “The NDP’s bold climate change and jobs creation plan Power to Change will take on big polluters, reduce our emissions and make sure that working people have more opportunities for good jobs and an affordable life.”

MacGregor outlined the NDP’s commitments to create a better Canada for everyday people through a national pharmacare plan, investments in housing, post-secondary education, childcare and services all Canadians can reply upon.

He’s taking nothing for granted in this election and has promised to keep knocking on doors until he’s gone through a pair of shoes and has a callus on his knuckle.

MacGregor won the Cowichan-Mahalat-Langford riding in 2015 with 35 per cent of the vote. He hopes his strong track record in the House of Commons last four years will speak for itself.

MacGregor’s campaign office, located at 295 Trunk Rd. in Duncan, is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from noon-5 p.m.
