Following her commanding win last night, newly elected Pontiac Liberal candidate Sophie Chatel spoke with CHIP 101.9 about the campaign and her next steps as the region’s representative. The former civil-servant stepped in to run in the summer after outgoing MP Will Amos announced that he would not be seeking re-election in August.

She thanked the electors of the Pontiac for their support.

When asked if she made any discoveries on the campaign trail, Chatel spoke about the numerous communities and people that she interacted with over the course of the race. She said that her priorities would be sustainable agriculture, protection of the environment and food security.

When asked what her first tasks as an elected official would be, she said that since she is new to the world of politics, she would be seeking the advice of her colleagues on how to be “as effective as possible” noting that there was a lot of work for the federal government to do.
