Volunteers and supporters cheered the Liberal candidate in the new Bay of Quinte riding Wednesday at the formal opening of the party’s campaign office in Picton. He, in turn, thanked them, emphasizing that it’s through their hard work and commitment that they’ve been successful in knocking on more than 20,000 doors, and learning about the concerns of voters across the riding.

The office opening capped a busy week for Ellis and the team. Monday they welcomed Liberal leader Justin Trudeau at a national campaign stop in Belleville where the party’s Veterans plank was unveiled.

It included investing $100 million annually to expand support for the families of veterans through education, counselling and training for families who are providing care and support for veterans living with physical or mental health issues as a result of their service.
The plan will also ending the time limit for surviving spouses to apply for vocational rehabilitation and assistance services and increase the veteran survivor’s pension amount from 50 per cent to 70 per cent. It will also double the funding to the Last Post Fund to help ensure veterans receive a dignified burial.

Thursday he introduced a new Teacher and Early Childhood Educator School Supply Tax Benefit accessible to all teachers and educators to apply to the purchase of up to $1,000 worth of school supplies per year for their students – providing a cash benefit of up to $150 annually as a refundable tax credit.
