Jean and Zeni for Nanaimo
A federal election has been called for Tuesday, October 14, 2008, and our local New Democratic Party candidates are Jean Crowder in Nanaimo-Cowichan and Zeni Maartman in Nanaimo-Alberni. Jean Crowder has done a splendid job representing Nanaimo-Cowichan during the last two parliaments while Zeni Maartman will be a fresh new voice in the next. It's important that Nanaimo be represented in Ottawa by MPs who really care about issues such as the environment, health care, education, economic security, confronting povery, continental integration, equality for women, seniors, Aboriginal Canadians, and electoral reform. Stephen Harper wants a majority so he can push through his dangerous far right agenda, wounding the Canada we know and love. Jean and Zeni can beat the well-financed Conservative machine in the Nanaimo ridings if we all come together and work to make it happen. ¡No pasarán!
