OTTAWA, April 29 /CNW/ - The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) is urging its members and
the general public to support Liberal candidate Anita Vandenbeld in
Ottawa West Nepean when they go out to vote on Monday May 2. The
endorsement is the recommendation of the Ottawa Area Council (OAC) of
"Anita supports the union's call for a national childcare program and if
elected she is committed to reestablishing pay equity in the public
service," said Maria Fitzpatrick, Regional Executive Vice-President of
the PSAC for the National Capital Region. "She has promised to protect
the public service from cuts, as well as to respect the role that
public service workers play across the country."
Vandenbeld wants to stop further corporate tax giveaways to the richest
and most profitable corporations and instead wants to use the savings
to strengthen our public pension system and our health care system.
There are approximately 59,000 PSAC members in the National Capital
Region with over 3,000 living in Ottawa West Nepean.
