Thinking of Strategic Voting?
Think Again! It won't work in Simcoe North

 
 

 

The Catch 22 website targets ridings that should use strategic voting to help defeat Harper. Simcoe North is NOT considered a target. This frees Green voters to vote with good conscience.

This strategy is backed up by data collected by Project Democracy, a non-profit organization that educates voters about voting strategically.

"Vision Green"


 
 

After two years of speculation, threats, and false starts, we are going to the polls. We were promised a fixed election date every four years, yet we have had numerous elections in the past five years at a high cost to Canadians, with very little or no benefit.

 

Another broken election promise by the current government is 'accountability". The recent scandals, cover-ups, arrogance and contempt of parliament make me embarrassed of our country's leadership and even more committed to working for a True Democracy.

 

A true democracy will be reached when we achieve proportional representation. In the meantime our goal is to elect Green MPs within our current system.

 

I encourage everyone to look at the Values and Vision of political parties and choose the party that reflects your values and vision for a future Canada. What do you want Canada to look like in ten, twenty or fifty years? The only choice for me is the Green Party. And now that I am a grandmother, I know I cannot leave this country or this planet in the hands of people who are looking to the present economy without consideration for the future.

 

Our economy has survived some difficult times. This is mainly due to the fact that Canada is rich in resources. We need to plan for a sustainable economy which cannot be separated from a sustainable environment. This is a Smart Economy.

 

And during my campaign I will focus on the third major goal of the Green Party - Strong Commmunities.

 

Say get involved. Watch the issues and most of all be prepared to vote in May.
