Steven Fletcher

October 14th is the voting day for the federal member of parliament. And these days, I am volunteering to a campaign because a lady in my Church asked me to do so.

It is Steven Fletcher who I volunteer for. He is current Member of Parliament for Charleswood, St. James, Assiniboia(where I live), and Headingly.

Several days, I walked with him knocking door by door. And what made me surprised is how the people meet him. Many people really appreciated what he had done for them. Once I saw a man driving black Ford Truck and when he saw Steven, he stopped the car in t he middle of the road, came to us and thanked him very much for what he did for his brother (his brother has a cancer).

It is quite different from Corea. In Corea, the MPs are nothing but tax suckers – they do nothing for the people. But in Canada (or at least Steven Fletcher), the MPs really work for the people.

For information about Steven Fletcher, refer Wikipedia and his Website – http://stevenfletcher.ca/.

Anyway, he is member of Conservative Party, and I know it is little bit early for me to have a political colour but I found that I agree most ideas of Conservative party such as tough on the youth crime, stronger military, lower tax.

I think he will be re-elected.

캐나다는 10월 14일이 연방 국회의원 선거일인데, 교회분의 부탁으로 요즘 선거운동을 좀 하고 있다. -_-;;

스티븐 플렛처라는 현재 국회의원으로 내가 살고 있는 아씨니보이아 지역을 담당한다.

몇일동안, 같이 가가호호 방문했었는데, 놀랬던 건, 사람들의 태도였다. 많은 사람들이 스티븐이 해준 일이 대해 고마워했다. 한 번은, 검은색 포드 픽업을 타고 가던 남자가 스티븐을 보더니, 차를 도로 중간에 걍 세우고는 자기 동생에게 해 준 일이 대해 굉장히 고마워 했다 (동생이 암에 걸렸다).

한국과는 완전 딴판이다. 한국 국회의원은 하는 일 없는 세금 블랙홀일 뿐인데, 캐나다에서는 (적어도 스티븐은) 실제로 사람들을 위해 일을 한다.

소속 정당은 보수당인데, 내가 캐나다에서 아직  정치색을 갖기엔 이르지만, 그래도 보수당의 생각들이 나와 많이 일치하는 것 같다. 청소년 범죄에 대한 태도라던가, 군대 문제, 세금 감면 등…

내 생각엔 재선될 것 같다.
