A quick shout out here to a friend in Victoria, Liberal candidate Paul Summerville, who is exactly the type of person we need in the House of Commons. I hope everyone in Victoria gets to meet him. They've hit the ground running...
Here is his nomination statement, "Our Campaign," to give a sense of Paul's approach to politics:
The Liberal point of view is that ‘we’re all in this together’ is much better than ‘you’re on your own’ and that liberalism is not an ideology, it is not a book of campaign promises, liberalism is a movement based on the trust in others to do the right thing, building efficient government to ensure a prosperous, fair, and clean country.Follow his blog for regular updates from the man himself, you will not be disappointed!
Liberal politics are the politics of inclusion and responsibility, of facts and evidence, of reason and dialogue over dogma and ideology.
