My Open Letter to Jack Layton
Dear Mr. Layton,
As you and other Canadian MPs return to Parliament, you will be faced with many tough choices.
However, I believe that there is no choice when it comes to dealing with Stephen Harper. In fact, I beg that you do not.
Instead, please realize that small concessions and short-term gains do nothing for the long-term credibility of this once-great nation that has been eroded to apathy and exhaustion by the scheming and corrupt Conservatives.
The Conservative Party of Canada has created a level of embarrassment and shame for all Canadians. Whether you look at environmental issues or the ongoing (and potential Constitutional) crisis related to the torture of Afghani detainees, it’s abundantly clear that these people care not for the future pride and dignity of all Canadians. They only care about clutching the reins of power as long as they can and you’re an enabler.
Do your job and make us proud again: NOW is the time for you and your peers to demand responsibility and accountability from the Harper regime.
Supporting this government is akin to turning your back on all Canadians that are craving leadership.
We yearn for someone to finally take a stand a say enough is enough. No more deals. No more promises. No more concessions.
We desperately need someone who will stand up for the voices of all Canadians that believe in progressive attitudes.
We all stand at the precipice and you and a select few others have the option of pushing us into the abyss or throwing us a life-line. Either way, we will not forget your actions. The choices you and your fellow opposition MPs make today will spell success or failure for not only the NDP, but our country as a whole. Which would you rather have?
I’ll vote for you when you when you help bring this government down.
