The homeless. Instead of wasting taxpayers’ money shoving them away, fix the problems, so it’s not a reoccurring problem as it’s been for many years.

Don’t succumb to the political system, be brave, be a maverick, do what’s right, be the rational, forward, and free-thinking leader this country needs.

LC KENT

DONNA KENNEDY

Don’t just hear. Listen.

Re-open mental health facilities. Do not cut back on health and education, because our children, our health, and the homeless need attention.

What exactly does our federal tax do for Mission? Highways, education and health care have all been loaded on to provincial responsibility, with some federal contribution. Canada Post is a corporation. Federal Department of Fisheries have little say over Fraser River resource management. Can there be federal grants to aid business development?

Please don’t make promises you can’t possibly keep. Please stop destroying our country chasing dollars from oil, gas and non-renewable resources.

GREEN BLOC QUEBÉCOIS

And the Green Party won its first-ever seat in Ottawa, with party leader Elizabeth May taking her riding in Saanich– Gulf Islands.

VOTER TURN OUT

Meanwhile, the Liberal Party tumbled from 77 seats (in 2008) to just 34, and leader Michael Ignatieff left his post after the election. The Bloc Quebecois and Gilles Duceppe – who has returned to his position for 2015 – crashed from 49 seats won in 2008 to just four, losing its official party status.

CANADA

NDP

Elizabeth May is the leader of the Green Party and the MP for Saanich-Gulf Islands in B.C. May became just the party’s second-ever Member of Parliament, winning her riding in the 2011 federal election (even though she was not invited to that year’s national TV debates). She won the Green Party’s leadership in 2006, replacing Jim Harris.

Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party won its third consecutive federal election, this time increasing its seat count to 166 to grab a majority government. The NDP, under the late Jack Layton, surged into the official opposition’s chair with 103 seats – the largest total in the party’s history.

Leader, Green Party of Canada

The 2011 federal election resulted in a major power shuffle in Ottawa – the incumbents increased their lead while others rose to prominence and relevance, and a once-dynastic party left in defeat, forced to rebuild.
