TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 16, 2013) - Fred Hahn, president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario, is spending part of his vacation going door-to-door with CUPE members in support of London West NDP Candidate Peggy Sattler.

"Peggy Sattler is the right person to represent London West," says Hahn. "She has strong links to this community, where she has been elected time after time as a school board trustee. She understands the importance of putting people first and standing up for fairness. She is filled with integrity, strength of character and a sincerity that will serve the people of London West well at Queen's Park."

Hahn was born in London, where much of his family resides. He was elected president of CUPE Ontario in 2009.

"In this election, I'm encouraging people to vote for what they want," said Hahn. "People in London West believe in fairness, and on August 1st they'll demonstrate that by electing Peggy Sattler."

Hahn will be canvassing together with CUPE members from noon to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday and from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday this week and is available for interviews.
