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!
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.
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.

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?
