I realize asking a person to think green while this beautiful island is a sea of white might be somewhat difficult. However, look at it like this, it is the time of winter that wears us down and makes us feel Blue. When we look out the window and see the plow has plugged our driveway again we might see Red. So really, colours are not so difficult, when you think about it, we are all longing for the green fields and rolling hills to reappear. This year as the snow declines and new growth spouts the two colours we are most likely to see is the Liberal Red or PC Blue as they once again come to your door with promises of great things to come. I caution you to think about what great things came the last time you saw these Red and Blue candidates at your door. I would respectfully remind you of the fact we now have the largest deficit in our long history. We have the harsh and unavoidable Harmonized sale tax that neither Red or Blue mentioned or promised when they last came to your door. Neither of these two Party’s talk about the environment, about clean water, clean air or healthy soil. They do make lots of promises, they are usually empty promises. Seriously, we have to think in much broader terms when we once again go to vote. We talk about change, the Liberals talk about change, the PC’s talk about change yet nothing but the colour changes. I urge the people of district 17 to consider voting for Peter Bevan Baker leader of the Provincial Green party of PEI. That would not only be a change of colour it would be a real change for island politics. It is surely worth a try, a Green party member could not possibly do any worse than those who have gone before him, he could even do better!!!. Instead of talking change actually make a change by voting other than Red or Blue in the next Provincial election. Its our choice, if we reelect the usual Red/Blue party’s we will only have ourselves to blame and no right to complain. I’m not asking a lot, just that we can and should elect a excellent-honest Green candidate in Peter Bevan Baker at the next provincial election. An election which I believe is not too far off.
God Bless and keep reading
