Angela, was a small business owner who has overcome so much, pregnant at 18 she raised a beautiful caring family, at age 35 she went back to school to become a lawyer. With her law degree, she fought for human rights and was on the front line of the land title dispute in Preston. I have had many conversations with Angela, this is not about her, it isn't about political parties, it is about Nova Scotian's, that is what drives her and that is what brought me to support her bid for Liberal Leadership. Some may call her the underdog, I call her a fighter. I am so proud to support her and call her a friend. LETS GO Brendan Maguire". Retrieved February 13, 2022 – via Instagram.
