St. Catharines federal NDP candidate Dennis Van Meer

A Message from Dennis Van Meer, Federal NDP Candidate for St. Catharines

Posted August 29th, 2019 on Niagara At Large

(A Brief Foreword from Niagara At Large publisher Doug Draper –

After Niagara At Large recently posted news from the Green Party of Canada, highlighting its plans to cut cell phone and internet costs for Canadians, I received this message from St. Catharines federal NDP candidate Dennis Van Meer, including a link to the federal NDP’s website that lists plans for making life more affordable for Canadians in this and a number of other areas.

In the spirit of fairness, with a federal election coming this October, Niagara At Large is posting Dennis Van Meer’s message here)


Your readers deserve to know that months ago the (federal) NDP declared their commitment to making cell phone service affordable for all.


Doug, we understand that cell phones are essential for work, for families and for emergencies.

Unlike the Liberals and Conservatives who have done nothing to contain cell phone costs for everyday folk, New Democrats will ensure that we follow through on our promises.  

Thank You,Dennis Van MeerNDP Candidate, St. Catharines
