The Côte St. Luc Senior Men’s Club hosted Côte St. Luc Mayor Anthony Housefather at its annual Florida luncheon. About 250 people, mainly club members and their wives, gathered at the Fresh Harvest Restaurant at nearby Seminole Casino for the event.
Because most club members spend their winters in Century Village, Deerfield Beach, Housefather opened by saying, “It’s a pleasure to be here in Cote St. Luc South.”
Housefather, the Liberal candidate in Mount Royal riding for the federal election in October, reviewed some of the highlights of his nine years as Mayor of Côte St. Luc.
He discussed the issue of growing anti-Semitism, the global threat of terrorism, and how governments need to balance effective action while respecting civil liberties.
Housefather also cited the importance of defending human rights at home and around the world.
Manny Young, who chaired the luncheon, thanked members of the organizing committee for their hard work in making the event a success.
