A message from Jim David, Provincial Director, PC Party of Nova Scotia:
Here is a “Letter to the Editor” from Scott Armstrong, President of the PC Party of Nova Scotia
The Conservatives were recently elected, with a strengthened minority, to lead Canada through a difficult economic situation. The Liberals presented an alternative government, focused on a carbon tax plan, but were rejected. In fact, Dion’s Liberals achieved the worst showing by the Liberal Party in Canadian history. The NDP and Bloc never were serious contenders to form government.
But here we are, with the loser and the also-rans joining together to topple the Conservative government and take over the reins of power in Ottawa . With no platform. With no plan. With uncertain leadership. With not one single vote cast for a Liberal-Bloc-NDP coalition government.
I urge all citizens, regardless of their political affiliation, to take action and contact their political representatives. Canadians clearly elected a Conservative minority government just six weeks ago. The leaders of the other political parties must respect that and not override the will of the people and change the outcome of an election to their liking.
While this coalition may be within the limits of the Constitution, it challenges all sensibility when a failed leader, rejected by his own party, can become Prime Minister by forging a secretive pact with a party that wishes to destroy the nation. No one voted for this. If the opposition want to bring down the government they should do so only on the expectation of a new election.
Scott Armstrong, President
Progressive Conservative Association of Nova Scotia
