Hamilton Youth "Take Back Canada"
The Hamilton Young Liberals started Canada Day by going to the heart of Tory country, the rural area's of our riding. We marched with our candidate, Arlene MacFarland Vanderbeek, in the Lynden Canada Day Parade. Expecting to find a frosty reception, we found the town lining the roads welcoming us to their community.
"Harper lied about income trusts," one resident told me. "I'm not going to get fooled again. You've got my vote next time around".
"We need to get serious about cleaning up the environment," another resident told me.
"We shouldn't be in Afghanistan anymore," another person said.
We finally knew that we had made an impact when a older gentleman yelled from the sides of the parade route, "Go Grits!".
