KANATA, ON, Oct. 6 /CNW Telbec/ - The Green Party of Canada has moved
into 2nd place in Carleton-Mississippi Mills in the most recent updates of
voter projections on Democraticspace.com, combined with local indicators of
support. Carleton-Mississippi Mills, located in west Ottawa, is one of the
first ridings nationally with a Green Party candidate becoming the leading
challenger to an incumbent Conservative.
Jake Cole, the Green Party candidate, is now focused on closing in on
incumbent Gordon O'Connor. "We have been overwhelmed by the support we have
received locally," says Jake Cole, a long time Kanata resident. "People are
starting to the see the Green Party as the best chance of unseating the
Conservatives in our riding."
Carleton-Mississippi Mills is a 'cross-over' riding with a mix of urban
and rural centers. At the debates last week in the communities of Almonte and
Kanata there was enthusiastic support for Cole from both rural and high tech
workers. "I used to think that the Green Party was a one-issue party" says
Bruce Calder, a successful business owner in the Kanata high tech district,
"but Elizabeth May has impressed me with her knowledge of the facts and
details, and I am voting Green this time."
