Well said Matthew. I really can't expand on what Matthew said about why the greens are the best choice. What I will try to do is outline what each of your choices will mean in this election.
When you go to the polls today consider these following points before you place your vote:
1. A vote for either the conservatives or the liberals is a vote for 139 years of status-quo government and as Albert Einstein said, "The significant problems of our time are not going to be solved by the same level of thinking that got us into them."
2. In Burnaby-New Westminster we've already had the NDP in for a term, so voting NDP will also be a vote for the status-quo.
3. You have three choices left; don't vote, spoil your ballot or vote Green.
Not voting is again a vote for status-quo because it does nothing.
Spoiling your ballot is an effective vote if you truly believe that there is no other option for you.
Voting Green will bring the party $1.75 (very small donation) plus raise awareness of sustainability in Canadian politics. If a Green is elected, then your riding will be noticed on a national and potentially international scale as the first riding to elect a Green MP.
Voting for the old-line parties will get you the same old people in the same old government.
Voting Green is an historic event that you can be proud of.
Cheers and please get out to vote.
