Some reasons for change
Myrtle Macdonald, MA
avid Suzuki posted the following comment recently and then Myrtle Macdonald, responded with ideas to vote.
"It's time for new Canadians to vote for the environment, exercising our democratic rights to vote for a better environment is the first step because we have now learned that without a vibrant environment, our economy, stability and jobs suffer."
I agree with Suzuki, especially his last paragraph: "As our population and industrial activities increase, more pressure is placed on the environment that sustains us. We must elect leaders who will ensure that development does not come at the expense of nature. As people who have survived extreme poor air quality daily and contaminated food sources, new Canadians should be the first to call for solutions to environmental degradation and climate change. Many pundits tell us this election is all about the economy, stability and jobs. Exercising our democratic rights to vote for a better environment is the first step because we have now learned that without a vibrant environment, our economy, stability and jobs suffer.
and the banks have long been been exploiters, pretending to be
benefactors, but keeping the interest they raise for themselves and
their shareholders. In the financial crisis of three years ago the
US government rescued a few financial institutions that were failing
and that appeared to end the crisis. This untrue. President
Roosevelt did better and for longer with the New Deal in 1930. Then
World War II began and he set the financial institutions and
industrialists free to become wealthy oppressors again. We need a
government to bring in a lasting new deal.
