CORNWALL — Local MP Guy Lauzon officially launches his autobiography today, a life story that candidly acknowledges his troubled past.

From Lawbreaker to Lawmaker “sheds light on my personal life, my early struggles with alcohol addiction, the gift I received in overcoming my addiction, and ultimately receiving the honour of being elected to the House of Commons,” Lauzon says in Facebook post reminding residents of their invitation to the 3:30 p.m. launch at the Community Addiction and Mental Health Centre at the Cornwall Community Hospital — recipient of all proceeds from sales of the title.

The book jacket promises the “true story of Guy Lauzon, who went from alcoholic high school dropout to one of the longest serving members of Parliament in the Conservative Party of Canada.”

The 73-year-old St. Andrews West resident was first elected MP for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry in 2004.
