We publish a report on what will be open in the way of public services whenever there is a holiday weekend coming up.

This weekend there will be an additional twist – free parking, city hall closed, hours for the swimming pools and the splash pads – the usual – but this time you will see some people going door to door introducing their candidate – well not the candidate yet but the Burlington New Democrats are fully expecting Lenaee Dupuis to be vetted by the national office of the NDP and running as their candidate in the upcoming federal election in October.

That means that, except for the Greens – and perhaps a couple of fringe parties – the slate of candidates for Burlington are in place.

Karina Gould, the sitting member and the Minister for Democratic Institutions will be the Liberal candidate;

Jane Michaels will be the candidate for the Conservative Party and Lenaee Dupuis representing the NDP.

Dupuis 2 LARGER

A Rotarian, a hockey Mom with a crazy dog. Also about to become the NDP candidate in the October federal election.

What do we know about her? A Rotarian, a Human Resources Professional who has worked in a variety of industries including Technology, Consumer Packaged Goods, Freight Forwarding and Medical Devices. Her network is broad and her experience is tenured. She has recruited at all levels, developed training programs such as Change Management, lead candidate and team assessments.

Lenaee holds a Biology and English degree from Trent University and a Human Resources diploma from Sir Sandford Fleming College.

She is also a hockey and baseball mom to her son, Alton, and loves to travel with him and her husband Kevin.

She also has a crazy dog named Buddy that you should ask her about!

Local NDP types say they are going to be out canvassing this weekend, which will be the first time Burlington has seen an NDP candidate at the doors five months before an election.

The Gazette will be doing detailed interviews on all the candidates.  Material on Gould and Michaels can be found using our Search feature – upper right hand corner of the Front Page.
