Same Ol' Threat
Earlier this month, I wrote about Sam Bulte and her conflict of interest. She's the MP in my riding who has backed U.S.-style copyright laws while the Canadian Recording Industry Association and the Canadian Motion Pictures Distributors Association filled her coffers. I admitted in that entry that I was giving Peggy Nash, our NDP candidate, serious consideration.
Last week I wrote about Sam Bulte's "pro-user zealot" statement. I pointed out that in 2004, Bulte won by less than 3,500 votes over Nash. I called upon my neighbours to send a clear message that this kind of behaviour is not acceptable. I had made up my mind.
It's deja-vu all over again. Apparently, I had these same thoughts last time. Here it is in black and white. At that time, only a few weeks before the last federal election, I confessed "I've been considering the possibility I might cast my vote for Jack Layton's NDP."
This will be the fifth federal election I've voted in. The previous four times I cast my vote for the Liberal candidate. The streak will be broken Monday night.
