Jason Draper

Why Draper thinks he is the best candidate

3. What qualifications do you possess that make you the best candidate to represent the people of Vancouver Island North in parliament?

My tenacity for seeking truth to organize a principle-based government has led me not only through Canadian and American history, but world history as well.  This knowledge gives me a base on which to seek out the laws and policies which offer Canadians life, liberty, and property, or in other words freedom.  I am extremely thorough in researching issues until the answer becomes clear.  Once it is clear I will never give up.  I will fight for your rights.  I will not avoid the issues,  waste time, waste your money, or make hollow promises. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.  None of the other parties have any thing new to offer you.  I come to you with a fresh face and working ideas.  I will educate and use common sense in implementing proper government which offers equality to all Canadians.  I have been a small business owner for 15 years and, with my wife, a home educator of our children.  Both of these take patience, skill, and endurance, which I am prepared to put forth as a Member of Parliament. Not being aligned to any party will offer my constituents the best of all worlds – my strongest qualification is that I am Independent.
