The Cambirdge Federal Liberals choose Bryan May
The Cambridge Federal Liberal Association is very proud to announce their candidate in the upcoming federal election, Bryan May. Cambridge Liberals braved some of the worst weather of the winter to choose Bryan as the candidate on March 9th at the Continental German Club on Main St in Cambridge. Cambridge Liberals were impressed with Bryan’s passion and dedication to help renew democracy in Canada.
Bryan May, his wife Kristin, and his son James, are long-time residents of Cambridge. In the past, Bryan helped many Cambridge residents in his role as Director of Membership/Facilities at the Chaplin Family YMCA. Bryan currently works for the Woodstock’s YMCA and recently spearheaded their multi-million dollar refurbishment.
THEMES & QUOTES FROM BRYAN MAY’S SPEECH:
On democracy and citizenship
“The Liberal Party is a party for all. We do not alienate, we do not ostracise, and we do not exclude.”
“It’s time to reach out, re-engage, and re-energize the citizens of Cambridge. I will let them know that it is time, once again, for them to stand up in support for a stronger Canada…citizenship is not a spectator sport.”
“I want a Canada where politics is synonymous with civility and respect.”
On the economy
“Our economy is still in trouble. Every day, families that once would have been considered middle class, are visiting our food banks.”
The recession may be over for the elite in this country but in every part of Canada. People are worried about paying the bills providing for their kids, and their vanishing retirement savings.”
“We deserve a government that has a credible plan for recovery—a vision for Canada’s future that includes everyone, not just the rich and those who vote for you.”
On the Conservative attack ads:
“We deserve a government that comes to the table with answers, not attack ads.”
“How many may have gone to school in another country, do business in another country, or God forbid live for a time in another country? Does this make you less Canadian? In “Harper’s Government” it does. What Stephen Harper doesn’t realize, is that a citizen of Canada is a citizen of the world.”
On the Harper record:
“We need to pull the curtain back on this government. In 2006 Harper said, “Bend the rules, you will be punished; break the law you will be charged; abuse the public trust, you will go to prison.” Stephen Harper spoke these very words while his party broke Elections Canada’s rules with the ‘In and Out’ scheme.
“I want a Canada that isn’t afraid to aim high, not one that lowers the bars so it looks like we are doing well. I want a Canada that leads rather than follows on the world stage.”Tags: Cambridge Residents, canada
