Press Release: Francophones Matter & NOP’s New Deputy Leader

For immediate release.

Due to the neglect the Ford government has put upon the Francophone community, the Northern Ontario Party Executive Board has appointed Shawn P. Poirier (Interim Vice President and 2018 Timiskaming-Cochrane Candidate) as the Deputy League of the Party.

Shawn Poirier’s passion for Norhtern Ontario and ALL people of Northern Ontario has been proven time and again. He has already assisted the party in becoming a fully bilingual party and continues to assist or lead any questions and interviews as needed.

Ford has taken aim at the Francophone community, which Northern Ontario holds close as it is part of what makes Northern Ontario so amazing. Northern Ontarians attend French school all the way through, and then at university they are forced to attend English courses. This is discrimination and the middle finger to Northern Ontario’s Francophone community. (Learn more)

Many new changes and adaptations will be coming in 2019 for the Northern Ontario Party to ensure the party is ready for the next election which is about ALL Northern Ontarians First!
