    MAGOG – The liberal mp for Orford, Pierre Reid, has officially announced Monday that he will not seek a new mandate next fall.

    “I want to see grow up my son, Louis, who is only 10 years old, and my three small children,” said the one who represents Orford, without interruption, since 2013. The politician is hoping to lighten his schedule to accompany his son in his academic development and staff.

    Mr. Reid will remain in office until the end of his term, which ends in seven months. He intends to enjoy the time he has remaining to move the folders close to her heart, including the construction of an athletics track at the sports Center of Magog.

    The mp considers also the sports centre as one of his greatest accomplishments. In return, he considers the attempt to privatize a part of Mont Orford as a faux pas. “In this case, I made mistakes and the liberal Party too,” admitted the deputy.
