To update and help reassure you we are on the move I submit the following:
It was a busy week starting Saturday, August 17 when I attended the pancake breakfast and Parade in Picture Butte to help get to know the electorate and what’s on their minds. It’s also an opportunity for them to get to know what I stand for and to share their concerns and suggestions.
On Monday, 19th and each day of ‘Whoop-up Week’ Senator Fairbairn and I attended two and three breakfasts daily and met many people. It appears like everyone recognizes her and she knows so many. She’s quite the lady as we all know and keeps a pace I'm sure most people don't realize.
We were up at 6 each day, even earlier one day. The experience brought home to me the need to get known and broadcast the Liberal message including why people should be, or vote Liberal.
Soon I hope to feel comfortable enough with broadcasting wherever I get the opportunity and Mr. Goodale's presentation is a super example of what needs to be published. Looks like it went down well with everyone.
The reception we received on the circuit was very positive. Also, it was a great week of liberal activities. 80 plus attended the Regional Annual BBQ and heard Kevin Taft, Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition in Alberta on Tuesday. Approximately the same number attended Mr. Goodale’s sessions on Thursday. I trust his message, words of wisdom and encouragement was as inspiring for you as for me.
Mr. Goodale reminded us of the proud record and healthy condition the Liberal Government left the country in but alas how quickly it has been changed by Mr. Harper and his team. Thanks to all who attended and a special thanks to Mr. Goodale for giving us his valuable time, words of wisdom and encouragement. If you would like to view his speech, please contact me. We look forward in great anticipation to future visits and that of others. On September 13, Mr. Garth Turner MP from Ontario, will be here to speak on ‘needs of investors and homeowners’.
If you have great ideas or suggestions we should be aware of, or you would like to accompany me on the campaign trail, please phone me at 381-7635. Thanks for your continuing support; it’s vital for all of us and I look forward to hearing from you.
