What can you get for 90 cents? 

That’s what the Brant NDP asked when organizing their campaign dinner for Brant constituents. 

Brantford, ON – The Brant NDP is pleased to announce its campaign dinner at The Ring Caribbean Restaurant, 271 Colborne Street, on Wednesday, December 23, 2009 featuring NDP Leader Jack Layton and local candidate Marc Laferriere.  The first seating for this full Caribbean-style Christmas dinner will be at 6:00pm, with a second seating beginning at 8:00pm.

The suggested price is 90 cents for adults and 50 cents for students and children. For those interested in donating to the campaign above the cost of dinner, any donations above $20 will receive a tax receipt and are much appreciated to continue our work during the campaign. 

The Brant NDP is responding to other local parties expensive and elite campaign dinners which are often $90-$150 a plate.  It is no wonder apathy is increasing in this system of party politics.  “We were told by other parties that in order to be competitive we would have to organize expensive and exclusive events,” stated Marc Laferriere, “we kindly disagree. The Brant NDP believes that accessibility and engagement are more important.  This is what our movement in Brant is all about.” 

Federal NDP Leader Jack Layton will be attending and speaking at the event to support candidate Marc Laferriere and to listen to the needs of Brant constituents. “I am pleased to be a part of this event that demonstrates the growing movement in Brant for more sustainable and equitable action from the government on issues like the HST, economic development, affordability, climate change and retirement savings among other vital issues.”

According to Layton, “Marc Laferriere is a strong, vibrant and hard-working candidate who would be a great representative for a strong, vibrant and hard-working Brant in Parliament. I am happy to support him and this wonderful area for what promises to be a great event.”

The Ring’s Proprietor Eddie Wisdom adds “We believe in giving back to the community as does our candidate Marc Laferriere.  We need to move beyond politics as usual and are excited to host this new and exciting event while helping to feed the community during the holiday season.”  

Events in this community should be accessible not elitist. Join us on December 23 to celebrate what is possible when we all work towards a better future for Brant.
