Kind of always better to be hopeful. I think it is important that people (yes, all Canadians) be aware of what is at stake here. I've been alive quite a few years, and never had so much directly to win or lose at election time.
There are many arrayed directly in opposition, and their job is much easier as long as polls point toward Conservatives, which they do right now. Harpo has a lot of money behind him.
What can a person do? Practice a short talk asking for support. Get confirmation of whether the person is listening, supportive, etc., before wasting your time trying to convert the nonconvertible. Talk on the phone, to people you know. Ask for their help. Tell them why they stand to benefit if the Liberals form a majority. Tell them how pwCCSVI will benefit. Send them a link to Kirsty Duncan's speech in Poland. Suggestions, anyone? I figure I'll talk to friends, people I know with 'MS'/CCSVI, relatives, PSW, medicos.
If I think I have a chance, I'll ask them to help by doing the same.
We have to try.
I'm thinking May the 5th is too late. We might need a rally before the election. How about May 1? Maybe get some Morris men in on it. Maybe I should ask Dr. Duncan for help.
