SEPTEMBER 16th, 2011 



OTTAWA – Enthusiastic about Roméo Saganash’s announcement to enter the NDP leadership race, MP for Abitibi-Témiscamingue Christine Moore gives her full support for her colleague.   

“It was not an easy choice. High quality people are thinking about entering the race and they all deserve a particular attention. Nevertheless, as for me Roméo Saganash distinguishes himself by his experience, his positive leadership, his humanity as well as his capacity to rally Canadians from everywhere”, declared the MP. “From the very beginning of the leadership race, I was hoping that Roméo would be running. Now that he enters the race, I will support him right to the end.”    

Roméo Saganash is the MP for Abitibi-Baie-James-Nunavik-Eeyou from the federal election last May.  He was the First Cree graduate to obtain a law degree in Canada; he was a Deputy Grand Chief of the Grand Council of Crees in Québec as well as holding the position of vice-chairman of the Cree Regional Authority. His important role in the negotiations that led to the Paix des Braves has been highlighted by many others. 

“I am extremely proud to give my support to Roméo Saganash as he takes this step. He is a hard working man, determined, human and engaged in his community. I am convinced he will be an excellent leader for the NDP and he will be able to represent New Democratic values for Canadians,” said Christine Moore.

“The stand I take today is first and foremost as a member of the party. Members are free to give their support to any candidate of their choice. I above all want candidates to have the opportunity to debate and exchange their views about the party and about the country,” points out Christine Moore.     

The new leader will be elected at a leadership convention in Toronto on March 24, 2012. The leader will be chosen by every members of the party as of February 18, 2012. The rules stipulate a one-member, one-vote election.
