New MPPs must act on arms
The Editor, An Ontario Legislature chapter of the Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (PNND) should start up now that Joel Harden was elected MPP for Ottawa Centre. Harden said in April he would join PNND if elected.
Ontario Green Party leader Mike Schreiner elected MPP for Guelph, could join PNND as Ottawa MP Elizabeth May is already a member.
Jim McDonell re-elected MPP for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry was asked to join PNND while attending Ecofarm Day in Cornwall on Feb. 24. Now his constituents should urge him to join.
If one of the six Liberals, three from the Ottawa area, just elected MPP will join, the Ontario PNND could launch with all four parties represented working together for the survival of the planet.
Our North Glengarry-Prescott-Russell newly-elected MPP did not attend the meet and greet in Alexandria on June 5, but three candidates who did said they would further inform themselves about PNND. They now remain constituents of our new MPP and should urge her to join an Ontario PNND.
The Ontario PNND could then work with the 25 member, all-party PNND at Ottawa. Together they might do enough so that at least we all survive the nuclear arms threat to vote federally in 2019 and again provincially in 2022. Gerard Daechsel, Alexandria
