It would appear that some individuals have a fear of a Liberal
government even coming close to upsetting Mr. Harper's quest for a
majority government and, thereby, his agenda.
In Toronto this past week, signs were destroyed, graffiti painted on
homes where Liberal signs appeared and, the most abhorrent of all, brake

Now, according to sources, it would appear that this same mentality has

a cowardly method of intimidation. We can only hope that, instead of
being intimidated, people will stand up for their individual rights.
Everyone must get out and vote to preserve the right and freedom to do
so. Anyone who does not vote is not contributing to the 'betterment' of
his or her community or, indeed, to his or her country and the system we
know as democracy.
