Get out and vote

Retired logger says time is ripe for change, and every vote will count on Nov. 15.

To the Editor,

Some time ago I decided that I would not write any more letters to the editor until there is something positive to write about in the Alberni Valley. I attended the memorial service at the old drill hall on Tuesday, Nov. 11 where I saw the largest attendance honoring the world dead and surviving veterans. There was one veteran who, after laying a wreath, turned to face his fellow veterans and public. He stood at attention and delivered a salute that should make any Canadian proud.

And now we are facing our civic elections where there is a full slate of candidates seeking various positions.  After so many years of poor leadership and bad decisions at City Hall, voter apathy seems to be over, positive attitudes seem to be developing and  our valley is now waking up—hopefully we will get a large turnout at the polls.

So, people: please get out and vote!

I am just a dumb old logger who has been here a lifetime and see the wonderful possibilities that exist in our valley. I believe that the only way to realize these possibilities and  move our Valley forward will be a total clean sweep at city hall. Some fresh ideas and faces.

So please get out and vote!

You have heard it before, if you don’t vote you get what you deserve and have no right to complain.

One more positive which is happening in our valley is our Bulldogs’ Jr. A  hockey team, which looks like a winner this season.

Go Dogs Go!
