CAW President Visits London to Rally Members for Election, Endorses Candidates
October 6, 2008, 2:41 PM EST
CAW President Ken Lewenza will be in London on Monday, October 6 for the first time as the union's national president, laying out the CAW's platform of strategic voting. This includes targeted support for specific candidates, with the goal of preventing a Stephen Harper Conservative majority.
"If Stephen Harper gets the majority government that he's looking for, years from now we won't be able to recognize this country," said Lewenza.
On behalf of the union, Lewenza will be throwing his support behind NDP MP Irene Mathyssen in the London-Fanshawe riding, Liberal MP Glen Pearson in the London North Centre and Liberal MP Sue Barnes in the London West riding. CAW will be endorsing an ABC strategic voting approach (Anyone But Conservative) in all other local ridings.
Today: Monday October 6, 2008 at 7:00 p.m.
Location: CAW Local 27 Union Hall

The meeting is part of a leadership election tour by Lewenza to various communities across Ontario over the last two weeks. For more information on the tour or the CAW federal election campaign, please visit: http://www.caw.ca/
