“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

Leslyn Lewis to seek Haldimand-Norfolk Conservative nomination – has support of current, and retiring, MP Diane Finley


Haldimand-Norfolk is a beautiful place with the most amazing, hard-working people. It would be an absolute honour to represent them and fight to make their lives better,” said Leslyn Lewis, former leadership candidate for the Conservative Party of Canada.

Leslyn Lewis proved to be a formidable competitor in the recent Conservative Leadership race, securing 30 per cent of points nationally on the second ballet and winning the popular vote. Support for Lewis in Haldimand-Norfolk was over 50% of the vote.

Leslyn has shown time and again that she is hardworking and passionate, just like the people here in Haldimand-Norfolk. Not only has she proven with each conversation that she is knowledgeable about the issues that matter most to our community, but the way that she connects with people makes me confident that she would represent us incredibly well.

I offer Leslyn my full support as she works toward becoming the Member of Parliament for Haldimand-Norfolk,” said current MP Diane Finley.

On August 17, 2020, Finley announced that she wouldn’t be running in the next federal election.

Recently, Finley and Lewis were seen touring around both Haldimand and Norfolk Counties, meeting prominent people in the community, and Lewis has now begun house hunting in the riding.

In the tired and polarized world of Canadian politics, there is an exciting, refreshing and positive new candidate in the mix. I had the privilege of being introduced to Leslyn Lewis for the first time, and Canada’s Conservative party can only be positively energized with Leslyn on board. She is engaging, optimistic and genuine”, said Steve Fenton, President of Battlefield International located in Cayuga, Ontario ... the county seat of Haldimand County.

He continued, “I don’t think it’s possible to spend time conversing with her regarding any topic and not leave the conversation with a fresh upbeat perspective about the subject. Leslyn Lewis is a highly intelligent and bright new light in Canada’s political world well worth considering regardless of the party you presently support.”

Leslyn Lewis is very straight-forward and I like that.  Her common sense approach on issues makes Leslyn a candidate I can trust.” said Murray Porteous, HN Conservative EDA Board Member and Norfolk County Farmer.

Leslyn Lewis is a mom to two children, who holds a PhD in law and a Masters in Environmental Studies and has her own law firm. She has been involved in grassroots politics for several years, and plans to use her professional experience to develop common sense policies that will improve the lives of Canadians.

When it comes to the environment, Lewis has consistently promoted a plan that includes incentives for green tech and tax credits for green home and business renovations over a carbon tax. 

To me, if you want to get things done and do them well, you need courage, compassion and common sense. This has always been my motto, whether it’s fighting injustice or raising my family, that’s what I will bring to the table as the Conservative candidate for Haldimand-Norfolk.

I hope that I can count on your support because, together, I know that we can do great things,” Lewis concluded.

It seems the call for blood donors is being responded to, however ... “This effort is a marathon, not a sprint” says Canadian Blood Services

A week and a half ago I wrote the commentary ... “ While the national inventory is currently strong, an increase in blood donor cancellations is a warning sign of potential challenges to maintaining a health inventory of blood ” It was written as a result of talk about a potential blood shortage that would occur if people stopped donating due to the COVID-19 virus. It seems the call to Canadians was responded to, however, as I was told this afternoon ... “ T his effort is a marathon, not a sprint ”. As it now stands now, donors are able to attend clinics which are held in Vancouver (2), Victoria, Surrey, and in Kelowna, so I asked if there any plans to re-establish traveling clinics to others communities - for example in Kamloops, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Revelstoke or Cranbrook, and perhaps further north at perhaps Ft. St. John? According to Communications Lead Regional Public Affairs Specialist Marcelo Dominguez, Canadian Blood Services is still on

FEDLSTED -- Rules will have to relax-- the question is how and when

The media has created a fervour over the mathematical models that allegedly help governments predict the future of Coronavirus infections in the general population. Mathematical modelling has limited use and value. We need to understand is that the data available on Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in Canada is far too small for statistical reliability. The data available for the whole world is useless due to variables in how nations responded to Coronavirus infections. There is no commonality in steps taken to combat virus spread and no similarity in the age demographics of world nations, so the numbers you see on the daily tracking of world infections are not useful in developing a model of infection rates that can be relied on. Mathematical models of the future spread of Coronavirus are better than nothing, but not a whole lot better.  Mathematical models must include assumptions on virus spreads, and various factors involved. As they are used in projections, a small erro

WUN FEATHER -- can we just put those two names to bed for a while? You can call me an ‘Indian’ and I won't mind. And let's not call the farmers and ranchers ‘Settlers’ anymore

Hey there # TeamCanada !   I can't take it any more! Well, I guess I can, but I don't want to. I want to talk about the names we call each other. My very best friends, and all my Elderly Aunts and Uncles call me an Indian. I have walked into the most magnificent dining hall at the Air Liquide Head office, Quai D'orsay in Paris, France, surrounded by the worlds top producing Cryogenics team, and Patrick Jozon, the President of Air Liquide, has seen me enter the room, and yelled: " Bonjour! There is Warren! He is my Indian friend from Canada! He and I chased Beavers together in Northern BC!" And over 400 people turned to look at me and then they all smiled, and nodded. To most European people, an Indian is an absolute ICON!   The ultimate symbol of North America. They love us. And then, one time I had just gotten married and took vacation days off to take my new wife to meet my Grandmother; I was so proud. But as soon a
