“New Democrats would like to congratulate all Canadian artists who were honoured at Sunday night’s Canadian Screen Awards” said Official Opposition Heritage critic Pierre Nantel (Longueuil – Pierre-Boucher)
Quebec artists once again took the spotlight, winning in some of the most prestigious categories. Congratulations to director Louise Archambault for her film Gabrielle, which won best feature film of the year; Gabrielle Marion-Rivard, who won the best actress award for her role in the film; and Denis Villeneuve who won five awards for his film Enemy.
Toronto filmmaker David Cronenberg was recognized with lifetime achievement award.
“Of course, New Democrats are also extremely proud of actors Rick Roberts and Sook-Yin Lee who won best actor awards for their roles in Jack—a film about the life of our friend and former leader Jack Layton”, said the NDP’s deputy Heritage Critic Irene Mathyssen.
The NDP would like to emphasize the importance of supporting Canada’s film and television industry which creates jobs in Canada and drives our identity and culture. We are proud of all Canadian artists who bring national and worldwide acclaim to our film and television industry.
