       The delegates unanimously endorsed the election of Hargrove and O'Neil along with the endorsement of Luc Desnoyers as the Quebec Director, who was elected earlier by the Quebec delegates.
       Also elected by acclamation were three new trustees; Bill King of the Retail Workers sector local 597, Anne Davidson of local 1990 and Marilyn Crook of local 1944.

Buzz Hargrove
CAW National President

       "It is a very emotional day for me, to get the support of the delegates at this convention. I can't tell you how I feel. The idea that so many people from so many different walks of life, from so many parts of our grand country and this great union of ours, can come together and give this kind of endorsement to myself for the national President and also for the leadership team that we have put together. It gives me an enormous amount of pride and I want to commit to you that we are going to work even harder over the next couple of years on your behalf and on behalf of the people that you represent back in the workplace."
