I am part of the 62% majority

Hello friends and supporters,

Thank you once again for all your help and support on the campaign trail. For the first time ever, Rob Moir and the New Democrats finished 2nd in Fundy Royal. We all share a part in this breakthrough. We are humbled by your support, and remain committed to getting results for Fundy Royal throughout the next parliament.

On the trail, we spoke to people of all political stripes across the riding. We had the support of life long Liberals, Progressive Conservatives, and even the former Green Party candidate. All of us realize the challenges we face, and it was through this cooperation that we were able to run a strong campaign that had not been seen in this riding's history.

It is in this spirit of cooperation that we respond to the efforts of our leader, Jack Layton, and his counterpart Stephane Dion of the Liberals to form a government that truly represents the voice of Canadians. Mr. Harper and his Conservatives have failed Canada. They failed to put forward an economic plan for Canada.

Canada has a growing movement to replace the Harper Conservatives. On October 14, 62% of Canadians voted against Mr. Harper's agenda. As part of the 62%, we feel compelled to support any option that will better represent the majority of Canadians. We can put aside our partisan differences, just as the Rob Moir campaign did in October of this year, and work together as Canadians with progressive political views to give us the governance we deserve.

The next week promises to be interesting, but we are optimistic that change is coming. We need your help and support to make this positive change a reality.

The Fundy Royal NDP Team
