“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.

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su

THE SIDEWINDER: MacDUFF'S NAIVE CALL

I have just struggled through Cheryl Ashlie's column ( MacDuff’s Call: A political novice with a sizeable ego ), in the Sept. 22 edition of The Maple Ridge News. To say the least, Ashlie's comments are naive and show just how totally out of touch she has become with political reality. Ashlie lauds the decision of Darryl Plecas to accept John Horgan's invitation to become the Speaker of the House, a move described by almost everyone else as self-serving and a betrayal of the trust of the constituents who voted for him. Ashlie claims Plecas' turncoat move will help provide good governance but in making this claim, she fails to explain how he will achieve this lofty goal.
