Lawrence Millar Your Island New Democratic representative for District 5 - Mermaid-Stratford
Lawrence was an elected member of the Valleyfield Community Council. His family comes from rural roots and eventually studied Agriculture in post-secondary school. He worked for the Ministry of Agriculture in BC and eventually moved to PEI. He also spent 2 years as an agricultural consultant in three colleges in Kenya, Africa. He connected with the Southeast Environmental Association. He enjoys and appreciates what the PEI environment has to offer and continues to serve the community by continuing to volunteer his time.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that the NDP is the party that best represents my values and in my opinion, the values of most Islanders,” says Millar. “I can’t sit back and see what’s happening in our province, more and more people are falling further behind and with nothing to help them. Something has to give. I’m sure people will see our campaign and see that Michelle Neill is the only leader fighting for them to make life better.”

Fighting for you
Life is getting harder for everyday Islanders. Our health care system is on the brink – hospitals are understaffed and closing, and vital health services are at risk of being sold off to private companies. The cost of living is growing far more rapidly than families’ paycheques, leaving many worried about paying for gas, food and housing.
Things have gotten worse under Conservative and Liberal governments. Underfunding of our health care system has resulted in ER closures, hallway medicine, and unacceptable emergency and long-term care wait times. It’s not good enough for the government to stand by while Islanders are stressed about affording medical prescriptions and dental care.
People are tired of promising one thing during an election and doing the opposite after. It’s time to stop that.
If we want a future, we have to make different choices. Islanders deserve a better deal, and New Democrats are prepared to deliver it. Together, we can make practical changes that make life more affordable for everyone – no matter where you live.
New Democrats will fight for improved health care services and for us, cuts are not on the table. We’ll make sure that government works for all Islanders, making our province a more attractive place to live, work and raise a family.
When it comes to better jobs, protecting the environment and investing in strong public health care and education, New Democrats are fighting for you.
