NEWMARKET – The Green Party in Newmarket-Aurora is pleased to announce that our election night party will be at local restaurant, Tom & Jerry’s (Yonge and Millard), starting at 8 p.m.
Local Candidate Vanessa Long said, “We are looking forward to celebrating at Tom & Jerry’s. It took some effort to find a restaurant that was truly accessible so that all of our volunteers and supporters can join us after an intense local campaign. I was assured by one local restaurant that they were 100% accessible but when I visited them, there was a 2″ lip at the entryway and the washrooms were unreachable by someone in a chair. If it was this hard for me to find a location, imagine how hard it would be if I were in a wheelchair. Universal accessibility needs to be a priority in a fair and equitable society.”
Vanessa has emphasized the importance of quality of life throughout this campaign, championing the right of every resident in Newmarket and Aurora to live with dignity.
“Hopefully on election night, we’ll see the results of our hard work and Vanessa’s excellent showings at the local debates. However it turns out, we’ll be celebrating our most successful campaign to date and planning to build momentum in 2011,” said local Green CEO Carter Apps.
Everyone is welcome to drop by on Monday, May 2nd, and enjoy some Green company.
