Building the Orange Wave
Book Launch with Brad Lavigne

The Grad Club at Western University
Middlesex College Building, Main Campus at Western University
My friend Brad Lavigne, is coming to London to launch his new book “Building the Orange Wave”. This book takes an insider’s look at how Jack Layton and his team took the NDP from fourth place in the House of Commons to the nation’s Official Opposition between 2003-2011.
As a member of Jack Layton’s inner circle, Brad Lavigne was among the most influential people in Canada in raising the relevance and success of the New Democratic Party and was instrumental in changing the political landscape forever in Canada in the 2011 general election.
I know that you will enjoy the chance to meet Brad and talk with him about his experiences.
As the deputy Heritage Critic, I always welcome new Canadian content hitting our book store and library shelves, and I know when Canadians look back on the 2011 Federal Election, it will be viewed as an important watershed in Canada's political history.
Western’s bookstore will have staff present selling the book, if you would like to get a copy, but the event is free and open for anyone wishing to attend.
