Joanne Belanger

For almost four decades, Joanne has been a defiant social justice advocate keen on representing the Bay of Quinte community with Ontario New Democrats at Queen’s Park.

She has been a counselor for over 25 years, currently serving her 12th year as the Chaplaincy Leader at Nicholson Catholic College.

She is an active member of the Quinte Arts Council and former chair of the Quinte Coordinating Committee Against Violence.

Cindy Davidson

Cindy Davidson grew up in Napanee, ON, raised by parents that were hard working small business owners who taught her both the value of a dollar, and the reward of hard work. She is a 24 year aviation and commercial transportation industry professional and adult educator, whose career has taken her to the most remote locations across Canada.

I want to represent the people of the Bay of Quinte constituency in the provincial legislature, as a Libertarian candidate, because I believe that government should be working for the people, absent of power, scandal, or corruption.

I plan to adhere to an open door policy, where the people will always have access to me, to voice their concerns and opinions on the direction of government.
