Election: Ontario Trillium Party Leader Presents Fresh Ideas in Newmarket - Aurora

It¡¯s not about the Trillium Party being the ¡°best party¡±, It¡¯s not about how important I am, or how important the people I associate with are.  It¡¯s about YOU and YOUR FAMILY. This is my home. My wife, Cheryl, and I chose to live here for the last thirty years. Shopping here, complaining about the 404 traffic, and objecting to all the ¡°wrong roads¡± being paved when the ¡°right roads¡± were being neglected.

I am as grassroots as the come.

I know what it¡¯s like to have to say no, when invited out for an evening with friends, because I wouldn¡¯t be able to afford to pick up my share of the tab. What it¡¯s like to have a bit of rust on my car, but have to hold on to it for ¡°just 1 more year¡­again¡±; and be worried when my mortgage payment and insurance have to be paid in the same month.

But, my wife and I have stepped up and met adversity head on and beat it down. I love standing up to bullies-- bureaucratic, mental and physical. I don¡¯t back down and have almost always done what I felt was right. I want to do that for you, the amazing families of Newmarket ¨C Aurora. I want to stand up to all these MPP¡¯s who think they have no choice but to bow to their Party Leaders whims for fear of being sanctioned or punished.

I have worked with major political parties for over a quarter of a century, always trying to change it from within.  I now know ¡­ it simply can¡¯t be done! We have over thirty years of debt-ridden government to prove that. The only way to change this mess is from the outside.  We have to grab this political beast by the horns and make this ¡°abuse¡± we call government, submit to the democratic process of allowing free votes. Your representative should ¡­ MUST vote for any legislation that reflect the will of his or her constituents.  Isn¡¯t that why you elect them?

I could go on touting up a padded ¡°for show¡± resume. But a simple fact is this, if you want to judge what a person will do check out what they have done. It¡¯s about character.  It¡¯s about not quitting when you don¡¯t get what you want.  It¡¯s about not being afraid to demand what we deserve, and never stepping aside against a bully or tyrant, even if that bully or tyrant is called a Party Whip or Leader of the Party.

Votes by the numbers

You will be shocked at how few people control your future as an Ontarian. The simple reason is this¡­.you choose not to!  If not you, then your neighbour.  Here¡¯s why.  Only 40% of eligible voters actually vote.  So, if this was a room of 10 people, this is how it works.

  • 4 people will vote.  6 people will stay at home
  • 1 of those 4 people will vote for blue team, simply because they always have.  1 person will vote for red team (approx.) simply because they always have.
  • The 2 remaining voters will split their vote up between the red, blue, and orange team.  Approximately 1 of these votes will go toward the winning team, and the other vote will be divided among the 2 losing teams

Conclusion ¨C 10 people¡¯s lives will be decided by 1.5 people out of 10.

WE NEED TO ACTIVATE THE 6 OTHER PEOPLE IN THE ROOM TO GET OFF THEIR DUFFS AND SHOW THEM THAT YOU COUNT AND WON¡¯T BE IGNORED ANYMORE!  JUST 4 MORE PEOPLE VOTING CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.

I ask this of you¡­..Take ONE hour of ONE day out of 4 years, and vote for Something Different, Something Better.  Vote for Bob Yaciuk, Leader of the Trillium Party of Ontario and a 30+ year resident of Newmarket-Aurora

I will prove that ONE man will make a difference in Queen¡¯s Park, by forcing them to support good policy or be exposed when they don¡¯t stand up and vote for a bill that they said they would. I will introduce that bill and make sure they don¡¯t hide in their offices when the tough votes are asked for.

That is my word, and my promise.

This is my home and I will earn the right to have your support every day at Queen¡¯s Park when elected.
