Fellow Canadians, change was wished for and change has come. Good change? Bad change? Time will tell….
I chose to stand behind this government not because I voted them in, not because I fully agree with their position or beliefs, but because I am Canadian. I believe a country divided will fail, you need only look around to see that. Your vote has been cast.
Now please I urge, I beg, I plead, let’s stop the hate and pointing fingers.
Let’s thank Harper for taking on a job few of us would be adequate for (if we were truly honest).
Thank him for the time spent away from his family (that will not be returned to him). Thank him for the sleepless nights he endured while making decisions that could alter the entire future of a country (while we slept peacefully with no thought or even awareness to the issue). Thank him for putting his very life in danger as he traveled the globe to keep, and bring, peace and prosperity to the present and future Canada.
Thank you Stephen Harper for your passion, your love, your service and your sacrifice for this beautiful country.
Mr. Trudeau, I pray that your shoulders are strong enough to bear the weight of an entire nation. That your perspective be broad enough to see beyond any personal pride or gain you may have. That you would seek our country’s best interests. Keep us safe, keep us prosperous, keep us humble, but most of all keep us united.
God keep our land glorious and free.
God Bless you Canada.
