Dear Friends and Foes
I just returned home after a long day campaigning in the riding.
Yes, I was surprised how disillusioned people are about politics and politicians in general.
I also begin to realize that driving around and talking to people in the riding about the upcoming nomination for the PC party in Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound is harder than plowing a field. It is very difficult for many to understand that the process of electing the next MPP begins now ,not tomorrow and not next month.
My intention to be nominated has visibly shaken those who belong to the other parties.
“Traitor, Traitor, Traitor; how can you with a clean consciousness join the Progressive Conservatives????
Pardon me, what are you saying? I thought that those who “claim to know better than every one else” could come to a rational solution beyond party lines and social divisions on their own. Where is the common will to find solutions and move forward together.Do not shoot the messenger.
Yes I am who I am. And I will continue to be the one who does not wait for change.
I want to get dirty by taking part in the process of reshaping politics. No problem, you can have your little political party and platform and color. But do not expect to get anywhere unless you understand, that the system itself has not yet a provision to accommodate change which allows the expansion to more parties at Queens Park or Ottawa.
Get real, Get back to basics
I do know that even some of our local die-hard conservatives are afraid and upset, that I dared to walk into their territory with new ideas, and a track record of unshaken determination to question our current path of complacency.
Bill Murdoch admitted that he is tired of the current structure of power, which limits every MPP to work for the people in the riding.
He is tired and we are lulled into the illusion that we cannot change anything.
That has to change.
That will change.
That must change
I could not wait longer for change.
That’s why I am entering politics, it is a MUST for me now.
