As per the January 20th, 2006 South Delta Leader coverage of the candidates available to Delta-Richmond East, I have held my tongue long enough.
Quite some time ago I gave the reporters of your paper a tremendous amount of information regarding the corruption of democracy within the Green Party of Canada (GPC).
After I reported violations to Elections Canada, I was subjected to GPC retaliation with an undemocratic expulsion from the party. Perhaps one could comment that it does not pay to be a whistleblower. I disagree.
Every person is responsible for ensuring that democracy is healthy in our society, if not, then the very fabric our nation is built upon, will be subject to unravelling. Other nations have been fighting for years to reap the benefits of a democratic society. We have a democracy, so let us enshrine it with due care, and vote wisely.
We have the right to vote, the right to access information before we vote and the media play a pivotal role in providing information to voters. I ask why then have the media not reported responsibly to voters on the corruption of democracy within the Green Party of Canada? Media has frothed at the mouth to report other party corruption.
Inform voters in the South Delta area of the Delta-Richmond East riding that the GPC candidate, Jean-Philippe Laflamme was not democratically nominated by the GPC members within the Electoral District Association that is registered with Elections Canada.
Jean-Philippe Laflamme was well informed prior to his decision to file his candidate papers, that his actions violated the GPC Constitution and democracy. Why would anyone vote for a candidate who does not support democracy? Imagine what other behaviour the voter may receive from such a candidate or the party that permits vicious retaliation tactics.
I believe in the Global Green Charter to preserve a balance between humanity, ecology and economy. However the GPC candidate has not abided by the fundamental principle of the GPC which is grassroots democracy. Due to my passion to enshrine the rights of individuals in our society, I will not be voting green on January 23, 2006.
Voters please assess the candidates as individuals versus their party affiliations. I suggest voting for a quality candidate that values human rights, a candidate that you can envision in parliament as an administrator over your $1.75 per vote. Our lives, family, friends and fellow Canadians will benefit from your thoughtful consideration.
