Garcia to attend Liberal Meeting in Canada

The Liberal Party leader Joseph Garcia has been invited to attend the Biennial Convention of the Liberal Party of Canada next month. Dr Garcia has been invited to attend with observer status through Liberal International.

The Liberal Party of Canada is in Government. About 3000 delegates from across Canada will gather in the capital Ottawa for the Congress. The agenda for the Convention will include the election of a National Executive, debates on policy matters and a keynote address by party leader and Prime Minister Paul Martin.

Dr Garcia said:

There have been regular contacts between members of the Liberal Parties of Gibraltar and Canada over the years. In 2002, two Senators from Canada came to Gibraltar to participate in the Executive Committee of Liberal International which took place on the Rock, and earlier, in 2000, Gibraltar delegates had also attended a Congress of Liberal International in Ottawa.
