OPEN LETTER TO LIBERAL PARTY MEMBERS FROM SUPPORTERS OF ANTHONY HOUSEFATHER:

Dear members of the Liberal party of Canada in Mount Royal riding:

This Sunday is a very important day in the future of the Mount Royal riding and indeed of our country. You are being called upon to select the candidate for the Federal Liberal party in next year’s General Election.

We, the undersigned, active members of the community in which we live – along with thousands of others – stand united in full support of Anthony Housefather, and here is why:

Anthony is from and lives in the Mount Royal riding. He understands its diverse population that includes a multitude of religious and ethnic groups, from Jews to Filipinos, from Armenians to Italians, from Lebanese to Greeks, some native to Canada and some newcomers – all who help make up the multicultural Canada of which we can be proud.

Anthony’s commitment, dedication, and accomplishments on your behalf are exemplary and beyond compare. He is well respected amongst the other Mayors and councillors on the island for his honesty, integrity, and his leadership on island-wide issues.

Anthony Housefather is known far and wide, not only for having excelled as a political leader in the civic arena for some 20 years, but as a well-thought-out and outspoken leader on such national issues as Canadian unity, minority language rights, transport policy and emergency preparedness.

Anthony was a leader against municipal mergers to the benefit of Cote Saint-Luc, Hampstead and the Town of Mount Royal. He successfully led the province-wide coalition of municipalities against the PQ’s attempt to remove bilingual status from municipalities and against the PQ’s so-called Charter of Values.

As a graduate of the Jewish Day School system in Montreal, and recent 7-medal winner at the Maccabiah Games in Israel, his staunch support for Israel is without question and he will continue to advocate for and stand shoulder to shoulder with the State of Israel in pursuit of an enduring peaceful coexistence with its neighbours.

Articulate, outspoken, honest, ethical and a man of integrity: all describe Anthony.

As a senior executive of a multi-national company, Anthony also has a wealth of international business experience, and has great familiarity in dealing with people from all over the world from various backgrounds and cultures.

Combined with two law degrees and an M.B. A., he has an enviable record of achievement that he hopes to build on as our representative in the House of Commons next year.

So we ask you to join us this coming Sunday in voting for Anthony Housefather and thus take part in shaping the future of the Mount Royal riding and our country.

Voting takes place between 12:30 and 4 pm at either the CSL gym at 7500 Mackle or the Montreal sports complex at 4880 Van Horne, just west of Victoria.  We hope to see you there!

Chers membres du Parti Libéral du Canada dans la circonscription de Mont-Royal:

Ce dimanche est un jour déterminant dans l’avenir de la circonscription de Mont-Royal et voir même de notre pays. Vous êtes appelés à choisir le candidat du parti libéral fédéral lors des élections générales de l’année prochaine.

Nous, les soussignés, membres actifs de la communauté dans laquelle nous vivons – avec des milliers d’autres – sommes unis dans notre appui indéfectible pour Anthony Housefather, et voici pourquoi:

Anthony est  de la circonscription de Mont-Royal  où il vit actuellement; Il comprend sa population diversifiée qui inclut une multitude de groupes ethniques et religieux: Juifs, Philippins, Arméniens, Italiens, Grecs, Libanais, etc…certains nés au Canada et d’autres nouveaux arrivants – tous qui contribuent à rendre notre Canada multiculturel dont nous sommes fiers.

L’engagement d’Anthony, son dévouement, ses réalisations en votre nom sont exemplaires et incomparables. Il est respecté parmi les autres maires et conseillers de l’île pour son honnêteté, intégrité, et son leadership sur les questions de l’île.

Anthony Housefather est très bien connu et apprécié de tous, non seulement pour avoir excellé en tant que leader politique dans l’arène civique au cours des 20 dernières années, mais aussi en tant que leader réfléchi avec un franc-parlé sur des questions nationales comme l’unité canadienne, les droits linguistiques de la minorité, politique de transport, et les préparations en cas d’urgence.

Anthony était un leader contre les fusions municipales au profit de Côte Saint-Luc, Hampstead et la Ville de Mont-Royal. Il a dirigé, à l’échelle provinciale, avec succès la coalition des municipalités contre la tentative du PQ de retirer le statut bilingue des municipalités et contre la Charte des valeurs.

Il est diplômé du système scolaire juif à Montréal et récent vainqueur de 7 médailles aux Maccabiades en Israël. Son soutien à Israël est inébranlable et il continuera à défendre l’État d’Israël dans la poursuite d’une coexistence pacifique durable avec ses voisins.

Articulé, franc, honnête, éthique et intègre: adjectifs qui décrivent parfaitement Anthony.

En tant que dirigeant d’une société multi-nationale, Anthony a aussi une vaste expérience du commerce international, il est à l’aise dans ses interactions avec des gens de partout dans le monde ayant diverses origines et cultures.

Titulaire de deux diplômes en droit et un M.B. A., il a à son actif un bilan enviable de réussites qu’il espère continuer d’accumuler en tant que notre représentant à la Chambre des communes l’an prochain.

Donc, nous vous demandons de vous joindre à nous ce dimanche en votant pour Anthony Housefather et ainsi être partie prenante du façonnement de l’avenir de Mont-Royal  et notre pays.

Le vote aura lieu de 12:30 à 16:00 au gymnase de CSL situé au 7500 chemin Mackle ou au complexe sportif de Montréal situé au 4880 Van Horne, juste à l’ouest de Victoria. Nous espérons vous y voir!
