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.
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.”
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!
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.
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.
For anyone that is paying attention to the local election calendar, there are a few events coming up in North Delta. Here is a list of the upcoming events in which I have been invited to participate:
April 22, 2009, 7-9pm – Delta Chamber of Commerce hosts the Delta North All Candidates Meeting at the North Delta Inn.
April 23, 2009, 7-9pm – Delta Teachers’ Association, The Delta Parents’ Advisory Committee and CUPE 1091 host the Delta North All Candidates Meeting at North Delta Secondary School library.
April 29, 2009 , 730-1030am – Lighthouse Sustainable Building Centre hosts Market Insights: Pre Election Green Building Special at ICBC Concourse, Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue (SFU), 580 West Hastings Street
There will also be an upcoming piece on Delta Cable Channel 4. The taping will take place April 27, 2009.
So that is what is coming up over the next few weeks. It is great to start being noticed and mentioned in the local press as well as being invited to all of these great events.
ELECT MARC MCPHERSON
It is Monday night right now, April 13. The writ drops tomorrow to officially kick off the election period building up to May 12. Starting tomorrow you will be seeing lawn signs pretty much everywhere. If you, or your lawn, wants to show your support grab an “Elect Marc McPherson” lawn sign.
