Ottawa-Vanier By-Election: Green Party offers moderate alternative to Liberals

November 16, 2016
Dear Ottawa-Vanier Voters, 
Tomorrow is your chance to send a clear message to Queen's Park about the need for CHANGE. 
Despite many scandals, the Liberals have continued to abuse their privilege and the good will Ontario voters granted Kathleen Wynne two years ago. If the cancellation of the gas plants, Ornge and the many other scandals the Ontario Liberals have been embroiled in wasn't enough, nothing compares to privatizing Ontario Hydro without a mandate, and selling access to government through cabinet ministers. Nothing--because its corruption personified. 
But, a vote for the Conservative candidate won't send the right message. The Conservatives are well known for their extreme right-wing policies. Everyone remembers just how bad they were under Mike Harris' leadership. It was the Conservatives who first recommended privatizing Ontario Hydro, something Ontarians have never supported. Privatized hydro always leads to higher electricity prices because the companies have a monopoly. This isn't something the Conservatives will tell you.
The Green Party offers Ottawa-Vanier voters a moderate alternative to the Liberal Party. One that is grounded in honesty, grassroots democracy and the promise of long-term prosperity through sustainability. Only the Green Party has a plan to make Ontario sustainable--to balance the needs of all Ontarians in a way that builds strong, safe communities, and which emphasizes local governance, food and jobs.
Only the Green Party will ensure you have local food free of GMOs to feed your families. And, only the Green Party will invest in retraining and re-education programs to help everyone participate in the new green economy of the 21st Century. 
On November 17, I urge you to send a strong message of CHANGE to Queen's Park by voting for Raphael Morin, the Green Party candidate in Ottawa-Vanier, because there's only one Green Party if you want real change!
