Letter to Editor Journal Pioneer 7th Aug 2018

Using the term “First Past the Post” is apparently ludicrous according to a gentleman by the name of Jeffery Warren Reynolds! See his post in todays (7th Aug) letters to editor Journal Pioneer)  Mr Reynolds goes on to explain at some length that an election is not a horse race and there is no “Post”. I’m not going to quote much else in his letter, he clearly belongs to either the Liberal or PC party. Or possibly he holds a lucrative patronage position within one of those party’s! Patronage is not a word he uses in his letter, nor does he mention the corporate monies the two major party’s receive from the Irving/McCain boys. He doesn’t mention the toxic spraying of the land, the pollution of our waterways, the fish kills, Geo Sweep, E Gaming, Wades brothers land and so much more. He refers to the Green Party as a fringe party and they only want PR to gain more control. He claims if we elect any of these fringe party’s we will end up with higher taxes! It wasn’t the Green Party that imposed the HST on islanders or approved higher electric rates. I fail to see the logic in Mr Reynolds statement. To suggest its correct to have a party elected with a majority while winning only approximately 40% of the vote!!! Now surely that is ludicrous! Why should 60% of the voting population have no say in who is in government. Proportional Representation will put and end to this lopsided two main party merry-go-round. In my conclusion, this is just another scare tactic/propaganda from the PCs or Liberals

Vote Green! or whoever!!!!

God Bless and keep reading
