New MPPs must act on arms

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

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
