I support Lloyd because he has taken an interest in the wellbeing of our the Ball 4 All program since the moment he first graciously attended a session at Sacred Heart School. His impact on our program has been nothing short of a blessing. Without Mr Longfield's vision, awareness, and his ability to tap into resources previously unknown to us, twenty youth who have and are pursuing higher education would not have benefited from being paid to be coaches at my camp. With his help, these kids were able to enhance their communication and public speaking skills through performing paid developmental clinics in basketball. 

I,personally, have watched Lloyd interact with the youth in our program and have seen them come away from the experience as though they had actually been listened to. This is a rare and important thing. Youth often feel unheard. Lloyd Longfield always listens and then engages, sets a plan, and IMPLEMENTS the plan.

Thank you Mr Longfield for being a principled, honest, resourceful, hard working voice representing our citizens in parliament!

I support Lloyd because he engages with Guelphites and responds to concerns with a personal touch instead of responding with generic answers that conserative politicians do who I also have engaged with.

Under our current Liberal Government, Canada's Unemployment Rate is at a 40-plus year low. And Guelph has one of the lowest Unemployment Rate in the country. That alone should see MP Lloyd Longfield returned to Ottawa for another four years.

But there are many other reasons to support Mr. Longfield. He's steered countless federal investments into Guelph's research and manufacturing sectors, always with a goal of spurring on innovations with economic and environmental benefits for all citizens. He's the genuine article -- an highly approachable MP who genuinely loves the work of representing a thriving riding. Under his leadership on the federal level, Guelph has become a model for all small cities in Canada.

Over recent years, internationally, it's been said that "The world needs more Canada." Well, based on all measurable metrics, Canada needs more Guelph. And Guelph needs more Lloyd Longfield."

I support Lloyd because he balances social issues with economic issues. I got to know Lloyd while in Ottawa participating in the Daughters of the Vote program. It was awesome to get to talk with him and connect on our common interest of supporting people in the Guelph community. While I was with Lloyd in Ottawa, he took the time to give us a tour of Parliament and made sure that we got the pictures that we wanted. This simple act demonstrates his ability to quietly tend to the needs of others and to recognize ways in which he can make people's experiences better. Lloyd genuinely cares about Guelphites and has been working hard to bring Guelph concerns to Ottawa. If you have a conversation with Lloyd, you will be able to see clearly his passion for our community and his vast knowledge of the intricacies of the socio-economic situation in Guelph. He knows Guelph and is proud to share how amazing Guelph is with the rest of Canada. Lloyd has my vote because of his experience has a business owner in Guelph, his strong belief in supporting those in our community, and his eagerness to learn about our community members. I hope you, too, will consider voting for Lloyd Longfield on October 21st."
