Vote strategic

This year needs to be the election that puts Canada back on track to be the best country it can be.

Canada needs everyone to get out and vote this historic election. This year needs to be the election that puts Canada back on track to be the best country it can be and help us be the best citizens we can be.

I am voting strategically because I feel we have reached a tipping point concerning Canadian values. Do we embrace our traditional values and prove to the world we are humanitarians at home and abroad? Do we demand social justice for all? Do we better look after our land, water and air? Do we stop muzzling scientists and start rebuilding our national archives and invest in education for all?

We need change soon so that we can begin to heal the wounds created after a decade of rule by a divisive leader. Please everyone vote together for your Canada and encourage your family, friends, workmates and neighbours to do the same. We can do this!
