The endorsements

Hélène Laverdière and Hoang Mai pick Paul Dewar.

“Paul is best able to continue the work that began under Jack Layton, with hope, vision, intelligence, compassion and respect,” said Hélène Laverdière. “Paul’s French is improving quickly. I also know that he shares the values of Quebecers and that he is ready to defend their interests. I am convinced that the more Quebecers get to know him, the more they will appreciate him, as I’ve come to do by working with him.” …

“I support Paul because I believe in him. He has the qualities and the values I look for in a leader,” said Mai. “Paul works hard and his French is improving every day. He has always been in favour of the Sherbrooke Declaration and he voted in the House to recognize the Quebec nation. I am confident he will continue to work hard to defend Quebec’s interests.”
