SEAN FRASER: Every vote will count

Every vote will make a difference 

All indications are that we are facing a close election in our community and across Canada on Monday. 

Recent reports suggest we are in a statistical tie with the Conservatives here in Central Nova. If current projections hold, we may be dealing with a margin of only a few hundred votes – and every vote will count. 

Exactly four years ago, I was elected to serve as your Member of Parliament. Since then, we have done some big things across Canada and here at home by working together. We have lifted over 300,000 children out of poverty, Canadians have added well over one million jobs to our economy, and we are advancing an ambitious plan to protect our environment and fight climate change. Locally, we are twinning the dangerous Highway 104, cleaning Boat Harbour, and constructing or repairing 14 local wharves, among many other projects.

I want to move forward so we can continue building on the progress we have made, all of which is at stake in this election. We have a Conservative Party that is campaigning on a commitment to dismantle our plan to fight climate change, give tax breaks to the wealthy, and make $53 Billion in cuts for the rest of us.

There’s a lot at stake. 

For those who are contemplating voting for another progressive party or doing what has become known as “splitting the left” – I have a message for you. You can vote for me AND you don’t have to compromise on what you are voting for. 

I am a community-oriented representative with a professional background in international and human rights law. Before entering politics, I dedicated a significant portion of my legal practice to volunteering with the Boys and Girls Club, the United Nations Association in Canada, and served as a research fellow with the Centre for International Sustainable Development Law. I have been a long-time climate activist and have been advocating for the need to combat hate and violence against women and minorities from the time I was a student.

But, when you are considering which party, you are voting for, I want you to ask yourself this question: Do you want to make a point, or do you want to make a difference?

On Monday, I am asking you to vote to make a difference. 

I am asking that you vote Sean Fraser.

We did made history four years ago today. Let’s do so again.
