Slowly, very slowly, people are starting to see the value that the Green Party brings to the world. As you can see from the result in BC, Andrew Weaver has now been elected as the first Green MLA in BC. In the mean time, the old first past the post electoral system has provided the BC Liberals with less then that majority of the votes. That Province had a chance some time ago to change to a form of Proportional Representation but the NDP sided on the no side. It worked against them in this election.

A large crowd showed up in front of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture building in Guelph, many with fantastic placards (zoom in to see them better), to protest the proposed introduction of GM alfalfa.
This was part of a day of action involving 38 communities across the country. The event was sponsored by National Farmers Union Local 340, Council of Canadians Guelph Chapter, Canadian Biotechnology Action Network, OPIRG-Guelph and the Guelph Wellington Coalition for Social Justice.

I would like you to take time to consider what you value in the government. If you are not sure, consider the following:

Everyday, you get up in the morning and turn on the light or listen to the radio. That takes electricity. In Ontario, while there are private hydro producers, electricity was largely brought to you by a government agency somewhere along the way or heavily affected
by government policy.

Sitting at lunch reflecting on the last two nights of all candidates meets which were agriculture focused. There is a lot of concern about terminator seeds and GE crops. It was good to hear people saying they like our policies. They also are glad they I talked about it in my speeches. The other candidates did not mention it in theirs.

In the last couple of days, I have been reminded of the fact that I really enjoy meeting and speaking with people and building relationships. The people I met seem to be so concerned and in tune with the election events. It is very inspiring and encouraging. Thanks. Brent.

Hi Everyone:
We are now in an election. I will be coming around door to door to get nomination signatures very shortly. If you can help out or donate money, we would really appreciate it.
We will need people to staff the office when we secure it. We will need people to go door to door with pamphlets.
We will need funds to purchase signs, pamphlets, and media advertisements.
Please get out to vote.
Thanks.

Brent
