British Columbia voters in newly configured ridings like Central Okanagan Similkameen-Nicola will almost certainly cast the final and deciding votes when the federal polls open on Oct. 19.
Though I do not “belong” to any political party, I urge voters in the riding to closely examine federal NDP candidate Angelique Wood and her party’s socially compassionate policies.
As noted in the Keremeos Review some years ago, Ms. Wood, a volunteer firefighter and pump truck operator in Hedley, assisted in hauling six “kicking and squealing” runaway pigs from a neighbour’s garden; and, then, helped return and properly imprison the porcine thieves.
Apparently, the NDP’s Angelique Wood already has the prerequisite skills and a clear understanding of exactly how Ottawa should truly work.
It’s time to kick the pigs out of our gardens, folks. It’s time for change in Ottawa.
