MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 7  2011-  The English Montreal School Board (EMSB) will proudly welcome back newly elected NDP Member of Parliament  Laurin Liu to her former school, Royal West Academy (189 Easton) in Montreal West, on Wednesday November 9 (10 am).

Ms. Liu, 20, represents the riding of  Rivière des-Mille-Îles. She now in fact resides in St. Eustache, which is part of her  constituency. When she elected last May as part of the NDP wave she was in  her second year of a joint-honours program in history and cultural studies at McGill University.

Principal Tony Pita, who was the vice-principal when Ms. Liu was a student, will welcome everyone to the auditorium. One of Ms. Liu’s former teachers,  Xavier Desilets, will introduce her.

Fluent in Cantonese, English and French, Liu was a contributor and director at McGill's community radio station. She graduated from Royal West Academy in  2006-2007. Royal West  offers an enriched CEGEP preparatory program. Hundreds of  students take a qualifying entrance exam each year.
