As has become traditional, the Kingston and the Islands Federal and Provincial Liberal associations invited Kingston’s Liberal community to a joint festive holiday gathering at the lovely Renaissance Event Venue.
Our newly-election MP Mark Gerretsen, our MPP Sophie Kiwala and our past MPs Peter Milliken and Ted Hsu were all on hand to lead the celebration. It wasn’t just Liberals who are in a celebratory mood this holiday season. As Sophie pointed out when she spoke to the crowd, it was like a dark cloud had lifted over Canada. Almost everyone, regardless of political affiliation responded to the change in government with new hope, smiles on their faces and a renewed spring in their steps.
