Civility to all is Canada I love

It takes a lot of courage to stand up for your values in all-candidates forums

A big thank-you goes to Dr. Martin Barker who is heroically representing the Conservative banner in this election. It takes a lot of courage to stand up for your values in all-candidates forums that have become nothing more than an opportunity to bully those you disagree with.

What has happened to civil discourse where respect is given to all whether we agree with their positions or not? How civil are those nasty anti-Harper negative billboards?

Today I witnessed a true act of civility, kindness, and fair-play. I stopped by the roadside in Mill Bay to thank a gentleman who was repairing a Conservative sign. He remarked, “I’ve been an NDPer all my life, but I don’t accept these tactics of vandalizing or disrespecting opposing teams”. This really touched my heart — thank you, Jim. This is the side of Canada I love and want to see prosper well into the future.
