Windsor Tecumseh —
There is change in the air—change that you, and Canadians like you, have set in motion. Last week your support helped us save the gun registry. Yesterday, Liberal MPs put Parliament on course to reinstate the long form census.
And right now, with one of the most critical fundraising milestones of 2010 less than 24 hours away, I’m inviting you to take a big step forward.
All across the country, Canadians are demanding that the government focus on the issues that matter—pensions, health care, learning and jobs. Your voices and support this summer powered the Liberal Express over 57000 kilometers and through more than a hundred communities in ten provinces and three territories. And at Monday’s Open mike town hall, hundreds more of you echoed that refrain once again, both online and in person.
We’re listening. And we’re here working for you.
But Stephen Harper isn’t listening to anyone. With a $17-million war chest from funds raised in 2009, the Conservatives can buy TV ads to push their agenda or attack opponents whenever they like.
Every week the stakes go up.
The Conservatives are spending billions of dollars of your money on a bad deal for stealth fighters and American-style mega-prisons, pushing us further into debt. Jack Layton’s NDP can’t figure out what they stand for anymore. Michael Ignatieff and the Liberal Party of Canada are the only ones standing up for you.
Together, we can effect the change you’re asking for and make real headway for Canadians. Demonstrate just what this country can achieve with a progressive, compassionate and responsible alternative to the Harper government.
You can make all the difference – Be part of the change.
Whatever the amount, please make your contribution before midnight tonight, for the maximum possible impact. And remember that since political donations are tax creditable, you’ll get as much as three-quarters of that back at tax time.
PS. Monday’s Open mike event in Outremont was the first in a series of unscripted and unfiltered conversations Michael Ignatieff is having with Canadians across the country.
