Update –Trudeau’s Pick Lost

Can you believe it?  The Federal Liberal Liberal Party favorite lost in that riding in Quebec ! A local High School  School Teacher beat the former Quebec Cabinet Minister,  a party favorite .  Emmanualla Lambropoulos beat Yolanda James.

I suspect the Liberal brass thought by denying former Mayor Alan De Sousa an opportunity  to run they had eliminated their main rival . Not so.

People obviously saw through the ruse and with a number of other candidates left in the race decided to vote for a local, bright , multi lingual 26 year old teacher. She says she knocked on doors and met people.

Forty five years ago I was a high school teacher and did exactly the same thing. And got elected ! I was twenty nine. But not multi lingual.

Congtrats to the liberals in St. Laurent for teaching their Party a good lesson.

Sadly , former Mayor De Sousa never got a fair chance but he must be finding some solace in the surprising outcome.
