Don’t vote for the status quo

The future direction of this country could indeed hinge on this by-election for if Donald Galloway

Re: Victoria centre of political map, Nov. 16. It’s a good editorial but I must disagree with one phrase, “the future direction of the country does not hinge on the results of this by-election”.

The future direction of this country could indeed hinge on this by-election for if Donald Galloway, the Green Party candidate is elected he will be able to double the Green caucus and their resources in Parliament.

There is absolutely no doubt about the effectiveness of MP Elizabeth May as she was the first to alert the whole country about the dangers of FIPPA, the Chinese trade deal, as just one example.

I, for one, do not want Canada to become a colony of China. I hope that all voters are paying attention to what is at risk here and vote for common sense. And don’t forget the Robocall cases which are coming up in court on December 10.

Because this is a by-election, electing anyone except Donald Galloway is a vote for the status quo.
