Give Harper majority to avoid another unnecessary election

Dear editor,
The confused musings of Stephen Harvey in your April 15 edition, stating that the Conservative Party’s record is shocking, warrants a reply.

Dear editor,

The confused musings of Stephen Harvey in your April 15 edition, stating that the Conservative Party’s record is shocking, warrants a reply.

Mr. Harvey’s postulating that, on the one hand, anyone who has not been paying attention to the actions of the Conservative government, or the Opposition parties, etc., “shouldn’t” vote in the upcoming election, is, to say the least, shocking advice — followed by his good advice, and mine, to “look” at the total record of the Stephen Harper government over the past five years.

Mr. Harvey and others will find that of all the G20 counties, Canada is rated No. 1 economy-wise, and our Stephen Harper Conservative government is also credited with leading Canada through the onerous task of emerging from the recent worldwide recession that has had such a debilitating effect on so many countries.

It is also blatantly obvious that to avoid another unwarranted and costly election in the future, that our only option is to elect a majority Stephen Harper Conservative government on May 2.
