Lauzon to make ‘announcement’ tomorrow about upcoming federal election

MP Guy Lauzon listens to the public in his last federal finances-related consultation at The Ramada Inn, in October 2017. At the time, local business owners vented considerable fury at plans by Liberal Finance Minister Bill Morneau to increase taxes on small corporations — part of a national backlash. The Trudeau government significantly watered down its plans as a result.

BONVILLE – Local MP Guy Lauzon will make an announcement tomorrow “regarding the 2019 federal election,” says his office in a press release issued today.

Lauzon, who turns 75 in April, is slated to address the media at the conclusion of Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry Conservative Association’s Annual General Meeting at the Lions’ Hall in Bonville.

The St. Andrews West resident has served as the riding’s member of parliament since 2004.

He holds his party’s nomination for this fall’s federal election and has previously said he intends to seek re-election. Canadians will head to the polls no later than Oct. 21 this year.
