Why I am Voting for Change
I care about the environment and I want more doctors and nurses.
I want Canada to get away from the neverending Conservative "War on Terror"
And I want Stephen Harper replaced tomorrow.
As Elizabeth May has said, Stephen Harper's "plan" to reduce greenhouse gases that cause global warming is a fraud. If Harper remains as Prime Minister, Canada will do nothing. Worse the Conservatives actually sabotage at international meetings the efforts of countries that want to do something about this crisis.
The Conservative response to global warming. A grease spot attack ad. Here is a spoof.
The Liberals Green Shift plan brings together scientists concerned about the environment with the brightest Canadian minds from the field of economics. All working together to develop the best long-term strategy to create a sustainable economy. Providing industry and individual voters the incentives and investments they need to really make a difference.
The Liberals also have an ambitious plan to decrease child poverty as well increase the number of doctors and nurses at a time when aging Baby Boomers will be putting the Canadian Health system under increasing stress. The Liberal platform.
And then there is the expensive and violent Conservative War on Terror.
Stephen Harper wanted Canada to invade Iraq.
He said so in a speech that he plagiarized from the right-wing Prime Minister of Australia.
Fortunately it was a Liberal government at the time who said, NO to George Bush's war of aggression.
We will get nothing we want if Harper gets re-elected. Nothing but more wars, more prisons, and more poverty.
It is time to replace Harper with a progressive Liberal government.
