Against a government which has intimidated and fired public servants for doing their job, and whose numbers on public service cuts simply cannot be trusted, Anita has worked hard to listen to Canadian families that rely on the civil service for economy security. She has said she will protect the interests of the thousands of families who work in the public service and who form a huge part of the Ottawa West-Nepean community.

Now, the Public Service Alliance of Canada is recognizing Anita's efforts, endorsing her earlier today:

The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) is urging its members and the general public to support Liberal candidate Anita Vandenbeld in Ottawa West Nepean when they go out to vote on Monday May 2. The endorsement is the recommendation of the Ottawa Area Council (OAC) of the PSAC.

"Anita supports the union's call for a national childcare program and if elected she is committed to reestablishing pay equity in the public service," said Maria Fitzpatrick, Regional Executive Vice-President of the PSAC for the National Capital Region. "She has promised to protect the public service from cuts, as well as to respect the role that public service workers play across the country."

Vandenbeld wants to stop further corporate tax giveaways to the richest and most profitable corporations and instead wants to use the savings to strengthen our public pension system and our health care system.

There are approximately 59,000 PSAC members in the National Capital Region with over 3,000 living in Ottawa West Nepean

With just days left in the campaign, the PSAC endorsement shows Anita has momentum and is the progressive choice in Ottawa West-Nepean
