ORFORD TOWNSHIP, QC, Oct. 4 /CNW Telbec/ - The Liberal candidate in Brome
- Missisquoi, Denis Paradis, today showed his support for tomorrow's artistic
"We don't recognize ourselves in the Harper government's cultural policy.
We have the privilege, in Brome - Missisquoi, of having a dynamic arts and
culture community that showcases all the talent we have in our region",
Mr Paradis said.
Mr Paradis associated himself with artists of the region gathered at the
Lion d'Or, in Orford Township, to auction a collective work entitled REFUS
TOTAL in order to gather funds to support up-and-coming local artists.
"I want to congratulate these engaged artists, such as Daniel Pilon,
Véronique Dubois, Pierre Cormier and Nicole O'Connor, who are mobilizing today
to support the artists of tomorrow. They show true vision by helping these
budding talents to bloom", Mr Paradis said.
Mr Paradis highlighted the fact that the Liberal platform includes a
commitment to restore and improve the arts and culture support programs which
have been cut by the Conservative government. He also pointed out that, as
advance polling begins today, the Conservatives still have no platform to
submit to the thousands of citizens who will vote in the next few days because
it would be impossible for them to do so on October 14th.
"Stephen Harper is asking voters to give him power without letting them
know what he intends to do with it. Liberals, on the other hand, offer a
complete, fully costed, and realistic platform. Harper wants a blank cheque.
In the name of those who will vote by advance polling, I demand that he come
clean immediately, in order for citizens to be in a position to make an
informed choice", Mr Paradis concluded.
