The right candidate for Ottawa Centre...
Emrys Graefe is running to be the Conservative Party candidate for Ottawa Centre. I've know and worked with Emrys for a number of years, and I not only think that Emrys would make a fine candidate - he'd make a terrific MP.
Emrys knows the value of hard work. He's always worked hard - whether it's to support his family, or put himself through school. Emrys has a very compelling personal story, and I am sure he will connect with voters.
More importantly, I believe candidates like Emrys are the future of the Conservative Party. While I don't want to put words in his mouth, Emrys is very much a libertarian, and a firm believer in free enterprise - he knows first-hand the dangers of welfare dependency.
Ottawa Centre needs to challenge Paul Dewar. While Paul is a nice guy - his party is among the most reactionary around. The NDP would happily sit down and negotiate with the Taliban! They think George Galloway is a peace activist. They hate Israel....and we almost had Jack Layton as a Minister in a coalition government. So, nice guys like Paul Dewar should be sent packing, and Emrys Graefe is right person to do that.
