Nora was my campaign manager for the 2019 federal election. Nora was highly qualified for this, as she had previously run in the federal elections in 2011 and 2008 gaining 7% of the vote, the highest ever achieved by a Green Party candidate in Brantford-Brant.
During the 2019 campaign Nora was indefatigable. She came along on all the door-to-door trips, every debate, filled in my gaps during media interviews, and greeted everyone at every festival and fair. Nora knew everyone, and everyone knew Nora.
Nora was not only a good political mentor, but a fashion consultant as well. Early in the campaign she said “You’ll never win the election with those baggy pants”, and I had to update my wardrobe. Whether it was Nora’s political acumen or good fashion sense, it resulted in a good election campaign.
The funeral service will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, 20 January 2024 at at First United Church, 16 William Street West, Waterloo Map
