Place Speak: Real Time Polling Results

Check this out: Federal Election Polls Live! I am determined to vote ABC, this time around, again. That means “Anything But Conservative.” As a writer, a humanitarian and someone who is passionate about the environment and believes in a Sustainable Economy, I have little choice but to ensure Canada does not remain in the hands of Stephen Harper and his henchmen. They are out to destroy everything Canada is built on.

I came across this poll at Place Speak, that asks the simple question: “Which Party will you support in the upcoming Federal Election?  Of course, as election day approaches, pollsters across Canada want to know how the answer to this. The amazing thing about this poll is that it shows REAL TIME polling results that are neighbourhood specific in six cities across Canada! This means that I can make an instant judgment based on their polling results about which candidate is the most likely to take down Stephen Harper in my hood! This I love.

Of course, it will only be effective if all of you go there and vote and then spread the word around to your friends, family and workmates. I know I have not come across a Real Time Poll like this one. If you’re like me, you won’t be able to take your eyes off the Place Speak Live Map!  

Anyway, have fun with this. I am.

Joyce Murray’s Stand on Off Shore Drilling

More about the BP Oil Gush.

This is the email I received from my Member of Parliament, Joyce Murray after contacting her re: Offshore Drilling in Canada:
I am recording this here in case the Liberals ever get back in power (I would like that), so that we can hold them to their word. I do have friends who know this MP and they tell me she is quite sincere, which is a good thing in a politician!

To Ms. Burtinshaw,

Thank you for writing to me about the urgent need for a ban on crude oil tankers along BC’s Pacific North Coast waterways. I share your concern about the vulnerability of our coasts and ocean if the moratorium on crude oil tanker traffic is lifted by the Conservative government, and am happy to report that on Monday, the 21st of June, Michael Ignatieff has announced formalization of the existing BC crude oil tanker moratorium.

In May, I traveled to New Orleans to see firsthand the ecological tragedy currently unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico. The world has now seen how vulnerable our coasts and oceans are to offshore oil spills. Seeing the risk to BC ‘s marine ecosystems, I have been actively campaigning in the House of Commons for Stephen Harper’s Conservative government to respect the moratorium banning oil tanker traffic from B.C’s Pacific north coast, instituted in 1972 by Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. The Conservative party refuses to give a clear answer on whether they will help prevent another environmental and economic catastrophe by keeping this moratorium in place. Please visit my website, www. joycemurray.liberal.ca, to see transcripts and video clips of the action I have taken in Parliament.

I will continue to be a dedicated and passionate defender of B.C.’s coastlines, and will fight for effective government leadership on this very important issue.
