Local Breakfast Series - October
On October 3, the Ottawa Board of Trade and Ottawa Business Journal will host its Local Breakfast Series event at the Shenkman Arts Centre with a Federal Election Candidate Forum for Ottawa-Orléans.
David Bertschi, Candidate, Conservative Party of Canada, Orléans
David is a trial lawyer, and a small business owner who has represented the people of Orléans for over 30 years. He has also had the privilege of serving the province of Ontario as an Assistant Crown Attorney and as a Human Rights Prosecutor.
His active involvement in Orléans has provided him with a unique perspective on the challenges facing those who live, work and play in the community. By working for and with neighbours, middle-class families, business owners, new Canadians, victims of crime, marginalized individuals, and veterans, he is humbled and excited to run in the next Federal Election under the Conservative Party of Canada's banner.
Jacqui Wiens, Candidate, New Democratic Party of Canada, Orléans
Jacqui is a community organizer, queer woman, and activist who grew up in Orleans. She's driven to build a Canada that's build on justice - not one where the top 1 percent get all the breaks. She's a voice for healthy communities built on good public transit, quality jobs, and education and healthcare that everyone can access.
Jacqui has fought against Doug Ford's reckless cuts to education - and managed Erica Braunovan's successful and progressive campaign for school board trustee in Ottawa. She's worked hard to improve the lives of working Canadians together with groups like ACORN, the Fight for $15 and Fairness campaign, Fair Vote Canada, and Our Time.
Jacqui is fighting to make life more affordable for Canadian families while tackling climate change. She's standing with Jagmeet Singh and the NDP to deliver real solutions - like universal pharmacare and affordable housing - and create a low carbon future with 300,000 good jobs.
