The 43rd Canadian Federal Election is scheduled to take place on or before October 21. With less than four months to go, while the majority of Canadians are enjoying barbecue season and summer fun, political candidates and their parties are hard at work developing strategies, presenting platforms and promoting their ideas. Bruno Côté, Conservative party candidate for Brome Missisquoi held his first campaign launch evening at the Bistro La Chouette in Mansonville on Wednesday evening, July 17. The “5 a 7” was attended by over 85 guests. “We announced the event on Facebook the week prior,” explained a member of his Campaign Committee. “We were astonished that, mid-week, so many people showed up to offer their support.” Côté, a farrier by trade, founded Maréchalerie Côté in 2011, a company specializing in horseshoeing, which now collaborates with renowned equestrian competitions.
