Denesiuk offers thanks and congratulations

"Thank you to my fellow candidates for running respectful local campaigns that did not include personal attacks."

Thank you to all who voted on October 19th. Canadians came out in force to elect Justin Trudeau as our new Prime Minister. We can look forward to a kinder, more open and inclusive style of governance.

I would like to congratulate Richard Cannings on his election win – the responsibility of representing residents of the South Okanagan-West Kootenay is significant, and I know Richard will work very hard for his constituents.

Thank you to my fellow candidates for running respectful local campaigns that did not include personal attacks.

I would also like to thank everyone who gave their time, enthusiasm and support to strengthen our local Liberal campaign!  We started from scratch (6 per cent of the vote in 2011) and despite a shoestring budget, we more than quadrupled the Liberal numbers to a respectable 28 per cent!

My husband Bob and I are grateful for the incredible new friendships we have developed over the past 18 months. It has been hard work, but enjoyable work – and I have never been more proud to be a Canadian!
