Nora Fueten, 1940-2024

Nora Fueten (close-up of Nora smiling into the camera)I was saddened to hear that Nora Fueten passed away on 10 January 2024.

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
