Thank you so much for having provided such great coverage of the candidates debates in NDG and Westmount. However, David Girard, former candidate for the Conservative Party of Quebec, withdrew from the race and was replaced by Souhail Ftouh at the last minute. In fact, on the day of the debate, Mr. Ftouh was busy obtaining the 100 signatures needed for his nomination.

It is unfortunate that NDGers did not have a chance to meet this most extraordinary man, a lawyer who had to flee the Islamist regime in Tunisia due to his staunch support of Israel and women's rights. He was attacked several times in the streets and eventually imprisoned for "treason" and "troublemaking". The CPQ, and all NDGers, are fortunate to gave this excellent candidate.
