North Island Tory MP Duncan has been hard-working, decent

Dear editor,
I believe that the voters of Vancouver Island North will recognize the importance of returning John Duncan as their Member of Parliament.

Dear editor,

I believe that the voters of Vancouver Island North will recognize the importance of returning John Duncan as their Member of Parliament.

For the first time in history this riding has a cabinet minister sitting at the seat of power communicating the needs and wishes of this area to the men and women who can make things happen.

In Duncan we also have a hard-working representative who has shown his ability to work with all local governments and organizations.

His many years as our representative in Ottawa have made him acutely aware of all the intricacies of politics and possibilities in the entire reaches of Vancouver Island North. In the 40 some years that I have lived in this area I have not experienced a more hard-working and dedicated MP.

What I really appreciate about John Duncan is his honesty, his concern for individuals, his thoughtfulness, and his basic decency. He has the ear and the confidence of the prime minister and as the Conservative Party moves toward majority stable government such a man as John Duncan deserves to be part of that majority faithfully representing this area.

Delbert Doll,
