Dear Editor:

I sincerely hope that everyone in our district is planning to vote in the federal election.

In many places in this war-torn world people are dying for the freedom to vote, and in attempts to achieve democracy. Here we only have to go to the voting station with our Elections Canada card and ID to have the privilege of voting (call 1-866-545-0618 for more information).

If you do not want another minority government with Pinocchio Harper and his minions, vote for anyone other than Conservative.

My preference is Mark Shmigelsky a proven local politician who has the Columbia Basin constituency knowledge. I urge you to support this man and his skills for us, and our future.

Shirley Campbell
