LETTERS: Keep Canada safe and economically sound

If you want to keep Canada economically sound, safe and prosperous, vote for Marshall Neufeld and Stephen Harper.

On Sept.  15 Stephen Lewis, former Ontario  NDP leader, elder statesman of the NDP party, and eulogist at Jack Layton’s funeral,  signed  The Leap Manifesto.

This document plans to overthrow capitalism in Canada. It defines austerity,  i.e., balanced budget, etc. as a threat to life on earth. It recommends abandoning the vast wheat fields of the prairies in favour of local organic farms. Canada must implement a universal annual income. Any and all fossil fuel production must be forced out of business within a generation. And, all trade deals that interfere with local economy must be ended. High speed rail must be powered by renewable resources, i.e. wind, solar. Lewis said the document is essentially NDP policy and is endorsed by the Canadian  Labour Congress. The real nature of the NDP is pure unadulterated socialism.

Even the term manifesto was borrowed from Karl Marx. If you want high spending, high taxes, job killing policies and a broken treasury, vote NDP. If you want to keep Canada economically sound, safe and prosperous, vote for Marshall Neufeld and Stephen Harper.
