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.

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!

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.

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 (www.conservativesbc.com).

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 marcmcpherson@conservativesbc.com or by phone at 604-727-5273. Both the BC Conservative Party and I can also be followed on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/bcconservatives for the BC Conservative Party or http://twitter.com/marcmcpherson for myself.

Kind Regards,

Marc McPherson

British Columbia Conservative Party Candidate, Delta North

Get informed, its your country, your province and your process

For anyone that may have seen the Rick Mercer Report on Tuesday, January 13, 2009, you have likely already seen this. It is “Rick’s Rant” from that episode and it pretty much says, as a population, we don’t know what is going on. So with a little entertainment value, I am joining Rick Mercer in encouraging all of you to inform yourselves of our electoral processes, both federally and provincially.You can get much information at Elections Canada and Elections BC.

Are you a Conservative? Take the test!

I think that there is a misconception out there that all Conservatives are right wing religious wing-nuts. I suggest that, while there are going to be extremists in every realm of the political spectrum, that ultimately the majority of people both left and right fall far closer together than you would think. Here is a quick test from theadvocate.com to help you figure out where you fall.

On that same thought process, check out the article “Too Conservative For Canada?” from 24 Hours Vancouver Edition by Bill Tieleman. Some rather interesting commentary on the supposed liberal political viewpoint of US President-Elect Barack Obama. Food for thought.

Volunteer Opportunities in North Delta

So since many people keep asking me how they can help on our quest for MLA- Delta North, I thought it a good idea to throw out some ideas on what you can do if you if you want to help.

1. Join us! Joining the BC Conservative Party is an inexpensive and easy way to help. You can join HERE. Membership costs $10 per year, or 5 years for $35.

2. Donate. You can donate to the party on the same link from #1 for membership. You can also contact me directly if you would prefer to donate to my campaign rather than the party. Keep in mind that you get a tax credit for political donations!  You can see the full schedule for the credits at the link, but as an example,  for a donation of $100, you would get a tax credit for $75. That makes your net cost (after the tax credit) is only $25.

3. Volunteer your time. Over the coming months we are going to need a lot of help in many areas.

  • We currently need help getting the final signatures for the Nomination Booklet. If anyone wants to sign, or help collect signatures, let us know ASAP.
  • We will need people to make phone calls to constituents on behalf of the campaign.
  • We will need people to help organize fund raisers.
  • We will need people interested in doing some busy work like putting up signs and such.

4. Start, or participate in a Constituency Association. For more information on Constituency Associations, check out some of the links at ELECTIONS BC.

5. Tell people about us. Talk to your friends, family and coworkers. Let them know what we are trying to do here in North Delta. This is truly a grass roots effort and everyone’s help in promoting the party and my campaign in North Delta is extremely helpful.

These are a few of the things that I can think of that you can do if you want to help. If you have other ideas or would like to be a part of the process in any way, leave a comment, drop me an email, or give me a call. I’d love to hear from you.

Merry Christmas North Delta and Friends

I just wanted to take a moment to pop in briefly and wish everyone out there a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope that everyone finds themselves happy and healthy this season as we enjoy our family and friends and think back to those we lost since last year. We miss you dad.

And for those who missed it this year, here is part of one of my favorites. The “Genuine Fragile” lamp from “A Christmas Story.”

Christmas Spirit and Lights, Lights, Lights!

For those of you brave enough to get out over the next few days, there are apparently some pretty spectacular light displays around Surrey and Delta. The Surrey Leader has a list of many of the brightest displays HERE.

If you take a stroll by any of them, let everyone know how they were!

And if you aren’t in the mood yet, check this one out. How would you like to be that neighbour?
