I am writing with the faint hope that Cortes and other North Islanders will avoid the mistake made during last election that saw the return to power of the Harper minority government. As you will remember, the center-left-progressive vote was effectively split giving the seat to John Duncan, member of the anti-Green, anti-democratic, pro-corporate Harper Tories. The majority that Harper is hoping for would be a tragedy on many fronts. See Murray Dobbin's blog at www.murraydobbin.ca for more about the dangers we are facing including information about M.P. Duncan. To learn more about ways to avoid vote splitting, particularly in such key swing ridings as our own, see www.catch22campaign.ca. Let's not inadvertentaly contribute to the demise of all that we love.
