The Editor,

On election night, I wept with pride for my fellow Canadians as we marched en masse to take back our country.

Pride that we stood together for decency and old-fashioned values.

Pride that so many Canadians rejected sleazy campaign tactics and instead gave overwhelming support to the only leader in the three major parties who refused to engage in mudslinging and fear-mongering.

It is a sickening practice that erodes our political system from the inside out and it has been tolerated in Canada far too long. Perhaps this government could make it illegal. Wouldn’t that be nice.

Pierre and Margaret did an excellent job in raising their son. I am honoured to know him and I was honoured to vote for him.

My heart today is filled with renewed hope for this great country of ours. It has been a long time coming. And I think I’m going to cry again.

Well done, everybody!
