Ask questions before you vote
When I woke up Nov. 6, I saw the poll results, as did a lot of other people here in this province.
As a lifelong Progressive Conservative I’m disappointed at the results - 47 points behind is a huge hill to climb, even though the campaign is only days old.
I could write this letter and tell everyone why you shouldn’t vote Liberal and why you should vote PC, but I won’t do that. People are educated enough to make up their own minds as to how to vote.
Still, there is one thing I’ll ask of the people who read this letter. I ask you not to vote because of the polling numbers or because of change for the sake of change, as we’ve seen all too often in this province. Educate yourself, ask questions of your candidates. Ask them the questions that matter to you and your family, and vote based upon that.
Whatever happens in the election, on Dec. 1 I’ll respect that, because the voters are never wrong. But I just hope that whatever happens in this province on Nov. 30, that when we wake up on Dec. 1 this province will still be the best place in this country to work and live and that the environment will exist for people to be the best they can be.
Also, whatever happens I’ll still raise the issues of this province in my letters and I won’t criticize for the sake of criticizing and will give credit where credit is due.
It’s going to be a fun ride. Good luck to all candidates and all parties.
