'These are values that New Democrats are proud to share'

Thomas Mulcair’s statement on the re-election of U.S. President Barack Obama.

On behalf of Canada’s New Democrats I extend heartfelt congratulations to Barack Obama, for his re-election as President of the United States of America.

President Obama knows that a nation can achieve more when its citizens work together to lift each other up. He also recognizes that sustainable development is crucial to ensuring a brighter future for our children and grandchildren.

These are values that New Democrats are proud to share.

Our countries are true neighbours and our peoples are true friends. I look forward to working more closely with the President to build a fairer, greener and more prosperous World for all.
