Why Draper thinks he is the best candidate

  • Apr. 28, 2011 3:00 p.m.

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.
