So everyone's campaigns are up and running! Supporters are calling from all over, asking if we have candidates in their ridings. I wish I could tell them that we have more than four since it's becoming more clear that voters are eager to make changes. Perhaps next time some of you might consider being a candidate -- don't be shy! The animals need as many voices as possible speaking out on their behalf.
Simon will be at 1900 Davenport tonight -- the debate starts at 7 pm.
This Saturday in the National Post's "Toronto" section, there will be a story on Liz and the party. Liz has done several interviews, with mainstream, alternative and student media about animal cruelty and made sure the importance of legislative change and participating in politics was raised.
Politicians keep saying animals must be protected from cruelty, but so far, it's a whole lot of talk and no action. We must take action! Please, attend candidates' meetings and press the importance of honouring a principle of just and equitable human progress -- progress that respects, protects, and enhances the environment and the lives of the animals with whom we share the world. Please speak up for those with no voice.
