Canada’s world stature lost under Harper

Local resident reflects on why Canada is not as respected as it once was.

Years ago when my brother-in-law returned from Cyprus with his blue United Nations peace-keeping bonnet, we were proud of him. He was proud of himself and what Canada was doing.

Today we are not the most respected country in the world as we were then.

Stephen Harper has continued this slide. We need a change.

A change to a caring kind of government. Conservatives are not those people.

I am voting Liberal this fall and I hope my vote and your vote can restore pride in our country. That’s why I’m voting for Connie Denesiuk, Liberal Candidate in South Okanagan-West Kootenay in October.
