HALIFAX, Oct. 8 /CNW/ - Les Holloway, CAW Atlantic Canada Area Director,
announced today that the union is throwing its support behind Green Party
leader Elizabeth May, in the Central Nova riding as a part of the CAW's
strategic voting approach.
"It is critical that we do not re-elect a Harper Conservative government
that will continue with its failed right-wing policies which have already cost
our country hundreds of thousands of good paying manufacturing jobs," said
Holloway stated, "This ideology that you give everybody their taxes back,
cut government spending to do it by deregulating everything and let the market
take care of itself has cost us dearly in both life and economic well being,
and it has indeed put us on the same course as the United States."
"Elizabeth May is an extremely intelligent and articulate woman and will
do us proud as a Member of Parliament for Central Nova. She cares about what
this unbalanced economy is doing to residents of Nova Scotia and elsewhere,"
The CAW is urging all eligible citizens to take part in the political
process by voting for a change of government and sending Stephen Harper a
message by not re-electing Peter McKay. The union believes the best way to do
this is by voting for Elizabeth May.
