Thank you Mississippi Mills

I’d like to personally thank you, the residents of Mississippi Mills, for your support in the recent provincial election. Thanks to you, we more than doubled the Green Party vote from 2011.

Elections Ontario recently released the results from all the polls across the riding. Our greatest support came from Clayton and Almonte. We also did very well in Pakenham. Overall the Green Party had the highest percentage gains than any other party since the 2011 election. The Progressive Conservatives’ voting share decreased by 6% and the Liberals’ decreased by 7%. The Greens’ voting share increased by 117%! Mississippi Mills helped make that happen.

I know a lot of people in Mississippi Mills know the true importance of our land, food and water. I want to do everything I can to protect and grow our heritage, our agriculture industry and our natural environment. I need your help to make this happen. I’m happy with the election results, but they need to be a lot better for the Green Party to win. There are tens of thousands more Green Party votes in this riding. Many voters want to vote Green but talk themselves out of it. Your help is needed in getting the word out. If everyone who talked themselves out of voting Green because they thought their vote wouldn’t count actually voted Green, their vote WOULD count and there WOULD be a Green victory.

I need your help to build on the momentum we all created together. Please contact me if you would like me to come to an event or to discuss local issues. You can contact me directly via e-mail at andrewwest@gpo.ca or through twitter at @greenandrewwest.

I’m very grateful I had the chance to run in this amazing riding. It is one of the most beautiful places on earth and with many amazing people. Thank you again to everyone that voted Green, and for your continued support.
