Marc McPherson Endorsed by Enough is Enough

Thought you guys might find this interesting. I was recently endorsed by a group called Enough is Enough for the May 12 election. Enough is Enough is made up of citizens from across the Lower Mainland who want meaningful action on crime from our elected leaders.

Check out their endorsement piece here.

Three Issues for May 12?

Riding the SkyTrain downtown yesterday, I was reading 24 Hours newspaperand came across the “Rebel with a Clause” column by Alex Tsakumis titled “Take a cloer look”. For anyone that saw it, you will likely agree it was a pleasant sup rise to see. For those of you that didn’t, check out the link above. 

Mr. Tsakumis talks about the Green Party, STV, and the Recognition and Reconcilliation Act  that the BC Liberals tried to force through before the election.

Here is an excerpt of the final paragraph of the piece:

“On Tuesday May 12, vote B.C. Conservative in all the ridings where candidates are available. It’s the only answer. They are reasonable and honest and would hold the balance of power responsibly.”

Signs Across America

So I wanted to put a little something together, an ad of sorts, but TV is clearly out of the budget. What is in the budget? A couple of signs, some cooperative friends, some free software, and YouTube.

And Version 2. The extended Director’s Cut. Going global!

Getting Noticed in the Press

Hey Folks,

Here is a quick update for you about press mentions and articles. As many of you know, the all candidates forum hosted by the Delta Chamber of Commerce was on Wednesday. For anyone that gets the Surrey/North Delta Leader, there was an article in Friday’s (April 24, 2009) issue. Check it out, picture and all. 

There was also a piece in the Vancouver Sun this weekend in which I was pictured and featured. If you have Saturday, April 25, 2009, edition of the Vancouver Sun, check out page A12. You can see the article here too, but the picture is only in print.

And finally, for those of you that live in Delta and get Delta Cable, keep your eyes open for the televised candidates forum coming up on Delta Cable Channel 4. I am not sure of when it will be airing, but the taping will be this week.

Talk to me…word on the street

Hey folks,

We are going to start doing something a little different here. Going forward I will be doing some video blogging. Asking questions to the people of North Delta to find out what is important to them, what interests them and what are the biggest issues for them leading up to May 12.

So take a look and get your cameras and web cams ready. Let’s start people talking!

Sorry the audio and the video don’t quite synch up properly on this first video, I am still trying to figure it all out.

What is your issue?

As the election draws closer and we find ourselves in the final month leading up to May 12, I want to invite you all to join the discussion. What is your issue? What do you want some answers about? What do you think deserves discussion?

I am going to start here today talking about ethical and responsible government. It probably comes as no surprise to anyone that has followed our current government over the past few elections that responsible government has not been a major concern. The reversal of an election promise resulting in the sale of BC Rail is one example. More troubling yet is the apparent involvement of Mr. Patrick Kinsella, the Liberal’s campaign co-chair. Gary Mason explains the troubling situation in a recent Globe and Mail Article HERE.

The Liberal governments Gag Law  that was recently, in part,  struck down by the BC Supreme Court as unconstitutional  is another example. Sadly, the NDP was no better. Anyone rememberBingogate? Fast ferries?

A BC Conservative government will push for effective recall legislation, effectively allowing the voters a chance to recall any MLA that has been involved in unprofessional behaviour.

One of the greatest things about being a candidate for MLA for the BC Conservative Party is that I, as your MLA, if elected, can speak for YOU. The BC Conservative Party promotes FREE VOTES in the legislature for all of its MLAs. What does this mean to you? It means as your representative in Victoria I am encouraged to vote on behalf of my constituents, not to tow the party line. So what is more appealing to you? An MLA that speaks for your concerns, and votes accordingly or a few more years of being told what is best for you by the boys, and girls, in Victoria?

Talk to me friends, come May 12, what is your issue?

Open Letter to Local Papers – There is a Third Choice for MLA in Delta North

The following is a copy of the letter I have submitted to the local newspapers, The Now, The Leader and The Optimist. I will keep you all posted and share links when they print the announcement and share ALL of the options the voters of Delta North have come May 12, 2009.

Dear Sirs:

Recently I have seen announcements for both Guy Gentner and Jeannie Kanakos as candidates in Delta North for the NDP and Liberals respectively. I would like to make you, and your readers aware that they have a third choice in Delta North. I, Marc McPherson, am running in Delta North as the candidate representing the British Columbia Conservative Party (

I have followed politics since my youth and am well acquainted with the political scene in British Columbia. I am concerned about our revolving door justice system, and the lack of government services including Health Care and Education in our province. These concerns, coupled with continued deception, mismanagement, and lies from the Liberals and NDP over the past 18 years led me to come forth and run for the BC Conservative Party in 2009.

I graduated from North Delta Secondary School and have lived over 20 years of my life in North Delta where I have been involved in the community. I have participated in and worked as a volunteer in minor sports programs since my youth.

I have earned a Master of Business Administration Degree, a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics and Business, an Associate of Science Degree in Computer Information Systems and an Associate of Arts Degree in Criminology.

As you can see from my background, I am a lifelong learner with a desire to make my myself, my community, my province and my country a better place. I would encourage all of your readers to strongly consider their new choice in Delta North, Marc McPherson and the BC Conservative Party.

You would be doing your readers a great service by informing them of, and equally representing, all of their options and letting them know that they have a third choice in the May 12, 2009 Provincial Election. Marc McPherson of the BC Conservative Party. The people of British Columbia deserve a better choice. They deserve a party that is going to stand up for them and their interests and not for the Unions or Special Interest Groups. The people of BC deserve a voice for change. Change they can trust.

I have included a copy of the BC Conservative Party Press Release (see release in previous post) announcing my candidacy in the upcoming election and I would be happy to answer any questions you, or your readers may have regarding myself and my party. You can reach me at or by phone at 604-727-5273. Both the BC Conservative Party and I can also be followed on Twitter at: for the BC Conservative Party or for myself.

Kind Regards,

Marc McPherson

British Columbia Conservative Party Candidate, Delta North
