With less than 70 days until the federal election, the Liberal incumbent is the first to lead the parade of South Shore candidates who will host campaign kick-off's and openings of headquarters.
A jubilant Bernadette Jordan, who serves as minister of Rural Economic Development in Justin Trudeau's cabinet, expressed appreciation to supporters, many of them dressed in traditional Liberal red, during the August 9 event at the corner of Aberdeen Road and Glen Allan Drive in Bridgewater.
Jordan, first elected in South Shore-St. Margaret's in 2015, is optimistic leading up to this October's vote.
However, politics hasn't always been fun for the governing grits. Some promises made in 2015, such as electoral reform and a commitment to a balanced budget this year, fell flat.
Liberals, instead, are bridging back to messaging related to the economy, employment figures, and the Canada Child Benefit.
