Elections can be emotional catalysts, as citizens feel strongly on issues while perhaps feeling more powerless than ever to change the course of events due to dysfunctions within our electoral system.

Apparently about a dozen of Conservative candidate Ryan Leef’s signs were vandalized recently.

I would like to suggest to the person or persons responsible that the means rarely, if ever, justifies the end. If one wishes to take issue with a party’s policies or with a candidate’s actions, then I echo the statement of Darren Parsons, campaign manager for Ryan Leef: “If they feel that passionately about it, I would encourage them to reach out to one of the campaign teams and just volunteer on that campaign team.”

This would be a more appropriate action, as I’m sure all parties can use more positive energy as we all strive toward good governance as we define it.
