Gord Landriault has been known as Mr. NDP over the years and has dedicated over 40 years to the party. Last Friday was Landriault’s last day in office working as the Constituency Assistant for MP Niki Ashton and the start of his retirement.
“I got involved with the NDP by helping a friend of mine put up signs back in 1969,” said Landriault. “Then in 1974, I got more involved when I moved into The Pas area and began working with Ron McBryde as the MLA.
“My involvement in labour and labour’s affiliation with the party is what drew me in. The NDP’s support for labour, how they represented the everyday working people and their policies were all things I firmly believe in.”
Landriault started out working on candidates’ election campaigns back in the 70s. He loved getting out, meeting the people and hearing their concerns. This led to him being a part of several successful election campaigns for the NDP, not just in Manitoba, but other provinces as well.
