The CPC EDA WW Nomination Night event on June 9th was very exciting and interactive. Both nominees Rinku Shah and Henry Lau provided excellent answers to all of the panel’s nine pre-determined questions, and the several audience questions to follow. Their opening and closing speeches were dynamic and filled with applause from the Holiday Inn Conference room.
Members’ voting registration and verification was run by CPC regional organizer David Dillon, whom put together a team of out-of-riding neutral volunteers for such. Timelines were followed as advertised and which were posted on the website in advance. Ballots were counted 3 times in a separate room, with each nominee’s scrutineers as witnesses.
NOTE: Al Teshuba, President of the WW EDA, and Khassan Saka, Chair of the Nominating Committee, were moderators of the panel questions, declared neutrality and thus did not vote.
At 9:15pm, Al Teshuba had a special board of directors’ meeting, to add additional board members (including members of both nominees’ campaign team).
Minutes afterwards, David Dillon came into the conference room and declared that Henry Lau was to be the WW candidate, based on receiving most of the eligible ballot votes cast.
Shortly afterwards, Al Teshuba received a text from the Shah campaign that they were disappointed with the way the Election went, and would be filing an appeal within 24 hours (which is the right of any nominee to do so within 24 hours, to review the election process accordingly).
More information and updates to follow.

CPC EDA of WW believes that the best representation for our riding and region is with a Conservative Member of Parliament. An MP who will be part of the next Andrew Scheer Conservative government, and to have a seat at the governing table to best advocate for our region!
Third Party NDP local representation has proven to be ineffective, and Windsor cannot continue to be left behind!
Join us tomorrow -Friday, February 22nd, at 4:30 pm at the Holiday Inn -Main Floor Conference Room, for Public/Press Conference and Q&A.
The Following are approved Windsor West EDA local advocacy policies and positions for the 2019 federal election campaign:
1. Increased funding for security at the border, our local police, and the RCMP, due to new legalization of cannabis and the ever-growing border traffic in Windsor.
2. Stronger advocacy for the TIMELY construction of the Gordie Howe International crossing, to reduce international truck traffic on our city streets (getting to the Ambassador Bridge).
3. More CBSA officers at the border for more efficient trade flow, increased security and less traffic.
4. Greater emphasis (possibly through incentives and/or lower taxes) to attract manufacturing jobs to Windsor-Essex, recognizing that we have an excellent skilled trade workforce, and an intrinsic geographical location to distribute product around North America.
5. Legalization of Single Sports Betting. This would be to support Caesars Windsor which employees about 5000 workers and to to remain competitive as Michigan will soon legalize SSB. With all three casinos in Detroit planning on participating, legalization is imperative. In addition, this will decrease organized crime running illegal sports betting and decrease offshore wagering accounts. The legalization of SSB in Canada will increase tourism in Windsor.
6. Increased local funding for immigration, integration and other social services for newcomers. Windsor has one of the highest rates per capita of new Canadians. To allow this multi-cultural experience to flourish, Windsor requires more funding from Federal Government.
7. Advocacy for more Federal Government establishments such as offices and agencies to create more jobs in the region.
