Christopher Porter is running for the Canadian Action Party

New candidate in the running for MP

  • Apr. 20, 2011 8:00 p.m.

Another candidate has come forward. Christopher Porter has announced his decision to run for Member of Parliament for Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca in the federal election on May 2, under the banner of the Canadian Action Party (CAP). He is the leader of the CAP.  The Canadian Action Party is committed to terminating the erosion of Canada as an independent nation capable of governing itself.

Last week each of the four declared candidates had the opportunity to state what they thought were the issues facing the citizens residing between Beecher Bay and Port Renfrew. Here is Porter’s response:

The environment and economy are being taken away from the long standing citizens of the region, without vision of what benefits will be left behind.

One of the five pillars of CAP is the Environment; to ensure that water, air and soil as the  basis of all life forms, will not be sacrificed for the sake of greed or the pursuit of profit.  Yet is that not what is facing the region? 

Development of course is good for any society to grow economically, but what about the loss of the economies that once formulated the region? There are no longer any established mills, based on whole round log exports. There is no longer an abundance of fish stocks to keep the wildlife and the livelihood of fishermen supported. There are no large tracts of public land available for  the enjoyment of many. Worse yet, there is no sufficient vision of improving the infrastructure to adjust to this huge shift in direction for the region. 

A simple overpass at the junction of McKenzie will not assist the increased traffic flow through the windy one lane portions to Renfrew. 

An improved economy will not occur if continued inefficient government regulations make local business development secondary.  

The opportunity to change is here and now. I am dedicated to listening to the voters, who are the true bosses of the MP. 

I am prepared to be the loud voice that the former MP was not able to express to the House of Commons. This election is not a one issue election. Build a roundabout at Mckenzie and with the 20 million dollars of savings, help develop the infrastructure needed to maintain the benefits for locals. citizens of the area.
