    I would like to thank everyone who volunteered during my campaign. Whether it be putting up signs, phone calls, being in the campaign office, scrutineers, drivers or moral support. From Revelstoke to Elkford, Nelson to Cranbrook and all points in between it has been inspiring to have so many people working toward October 19th. THANK YOU.

    So some of my thoughts as this election comes to a close. (1) We should stop televising Question Period. It does not depict how we as parliamentarians work in Ottawa. What they should show instead is one hour of committee work, where for the most part all parties work together in a cordial manner. (2) The most important work that a Parliamentarian does, is in his or her riding. What happens in Ottawa is important, but all parliamentarians are elected to represent ensure that his or her riding gets their fair share of funding or grants that become available. (3) You get absolutely no where as a parliamentarian without good staff. I am blessed to have great staff in Ottawa and Cranbrook. They are the ones that deal with EI issues, passports issues, immigration issues and on and on. Over the past 4 1/2 years my staff have dealt with over 7000 files, and have an amazing success rate. (4) I believe that in Ottawa you get way more done working behind the scenes, rather than pounding your desk and making a lot of noise. Patience is a virtue in federal politics. (5) I believe I have done a good job for the constituents of Kootenay-Columbia over the past 4 1/2 years, we have got a lot done. Affordable Housing projects have been completed throughout the riding Infrastructure funding has been secured for many communities and regional districts Community groups have benefited from programs such as New Horizons and Western Economic Development The National Parks have received record amounts of funding for a variety of projects. (6) I have been through enough elections both municipally and federally to know that people decide what your fate is. With that get out and vote, we live in the greatest country in the world, one we should be very proud of regardless of your political strip.

    I have watched over the past 77 days a spirit for political engagement which has ignited passion from all parties. It has been interested to view the posts on this wall some encouraging and some very negative. The posts that I personally put up did exactly what I wanted them to do. That was to encourage conversation between people who follow this page. Whether my 20 years with the RCMP, 9 years in Municipal Government or the last 4 1/2 in federal government my sole purpose was to serve the people of Canada to the best of my ability. I has also learned throughout the years that you cannot please everyone. Their are those who for whatever reason do not like me. Most have never met me, but it is their choice to make that determination. So today on the last day of the campaign I am going to provide my personal views on a number of topics. With the exception of one I will not talk about the other parties. I believe the decision that has to be made by people in Kootenay-Columbia is the person who can best represent them in Ottawa. Regardless of party or party leaders it is the local MP who gets things done in the riding. With that I congratulate everyone across Canada who has put their name forward to run for Member of Parliament. It is not for the faint of heart.

    To all my friends, neighbors, family and acquaintances: if you live in Canada, Monday is an extremely important day for all of us. You included. This election will determine the direction Canada will take over the next few years. Will we continue to move forward, developing our economy, growing jobs, and making Canada a better place to live? Or will we go backwards to a time of high taxes, weak foreign policy, and no clear direction? I'm voting Conservative. I know you all just fainted from the shock to hear that ... ;-) I believe that Stephen Harper is the right man at the right time for Canada. He's a steady hand on the tiller, a strong and capable leader and a brilliant thinker. Admittedly he's not flashy, but I want intelligence and competence in my leaders. Vote Conservative on October 19. For Canada and mostly for you and your future.

    Was honoured to attend the Cranbrook Legion this afternoon and present Lee Brown with a World War II Bomber Squad bar. Amazing man, 33 sorties flying the Lancaster bomber over Europe between 1943 and 1945. Then went to support my MLA Bill Bennett at a dinner with over 300 in attendance. Great to see so much support in the room.

    Think about this as you mark your ballot. The NDP is against free trade deals, they are against pipelines, they should rename themselves the No Development Party. The Liberals have promised a deficit for the next 4 years, racking up billions in spending with no way a paying it back. Our Conservative government will manage the economy with a low tax plan, putting money back in the pockets of everyday Canadians and ensuring we stay competitive in the world market.

    Every time Tom Mulcair opens his mouth in a French debate he digs the hole a little deeper. This is what he said tonight. An NDP government would allow Quebec — but no other province — to opt out of new federally funded social programs and receive its share of the money with no strings attached.

    So this is exactly what the leader of the NDP said on December 3rd, 2014 " it doesn't have to be a registry as it was before, but it does have to be a form that allows the governments, federal and provincial, to keep track. No matter what you call it, a registry is a registry is a registry. The Conservative Party got rid of the gun registry, Promise Made, Promise Kept.
