I have been so astounded, listening to people about the upcoming election. and saddened by so many people’s lack of being informed.
After speaking with many people here in Cornwall here are some examples of what I hear. “Don’t listen to what they say about Harper on the news and in the papers, it’s all made up and all lies” or “I have always voted Conservative, why should I change now?”
My first reaction is that Canadians should have to pass a test to prove they have informed themselves but then, we have so much voter apathy as it is, that would defiantly not help.
I hear many reason’s also why not to vote Conservative but one thing I never hear about is Bill C-474 which was rejected by the Conservative government on October 2nd.
This bill would of protected Canadian farmer’s from their seed being germinated by Monsanto seed (seed that has been genetically engineered) and protected us from eating GM produce. Buying local would not matter in the future. All NDP and Bloq and some Liberals voted for this bill while Conservatives unanimously voted against it.
Goes to show how the Conservatives do not have our best interest at heart nor the farmer’s who have been fighting long to keep their seed clean. This will effect our economy and put farmer’s and our health both at risk.
Vote Conservative and you vote for unsafe food and for our farmers to continue struggling to make ends meet. Vote for Conservatives and you vote for our freedoms being taken away from us when it comes to the simple choice of what we eat.
Please think before you vote but most of all PLEASE VOTE!
