NDP and Liberals in power too long

Restore our failing democracy and economy and borders by voting for Conservative values

NDP and Liberals in power too long

Like most Canadians, we’re concerned about collapsing economies, changing demographics, loss of personal freedom, loss of freedom of speech, increasing homelessness and increasing violence. Clearly, we are lacking leadership both federally and locally. Justin has proven an incompetent, disastrous embarrassment and is dragging Canada toward the dictatorship he admires.

Closer to home, local NDP leftists, the so called ‘workers party’ is consumed with self interest, imagining they merit 30 per cent salary increase while plotting to work only four days per week! How entitled, privileged and shameful! They mindlessly waste our hard-earned tax dollars and create dangerous neighbourhoods. Over decades, NDP leftists have wasted millions on the worsening homelessness crises. Every park and hotel where homeless were relocated has been degraded, costing millions more to repair. The once lovely city of Victoria is filled with random tents degrading public spaces, parks and ever dangerous downtown streets. Apparently, the left believes the right of homeless to squat where they please, supersedes your right to safe drug free, crime free neighbourhoods.

Even more grievous is the tragic, apparently random murder of Martin Payne, father of two, by criminals released from Willian Head Institution in 2019. If you live in this vicinity, be aware that the rights of criminals supersedes yours. While criminals are free to wander, you must remain on guard for your life and property. Again, it appears NDP leftist elected officials care more about the rights of criminals and homeless than decent hard-working, law abiding citizens.

Like old communists, the NDP and Liberals have grown fat, lazy and complacent from being in power too long. ‘Sunny ways and transparency’ has long proven a lie, yet NDP still support them. Fortunately, we still have democracy in Canada. We each hold the power to restore our failing democracy and economy and borders by voting for Conservative values. The next election can’t come soon enough!
