Carolyn Bennett in LKM speaking on Why your Vote Matters

Posted on April 26, 2011

Voting in the May 2 federal election has never been more important, says St. Paul’s MP Carolyn Bennett.

The former minister of state for public health in the Paul Martin Liberal government said Conservative leader Stephen Harper is doing all he can to suppress the vote.

Bennett was in the Lambton-Kent-Middlesex riding last Tuesday to lend support to first-time Liberal candidate Gayle Stucke.

Below is a video of Carolyn Bennett reiterating her message.

“Voter turnout will be hugely important in this election,” said Bennett. “Harper, with his negative ad campaigns, is trying to discourage Canadians from voting.”

Bennett said the lower the voter turnout the more influence the right-wing party gains.

The veteran MP is also campaigning to increase the number of women in parliament and said Stucke would make a welcome addition.

“Today women make up less than 20 per cent of MPs in Ottawa,” she said.

Bennett said there are two distinct differences in this election campaign.

“This election is all about governing Canada in an open and free manner,” she said. “The way Harper has been running the country is not right. The message in this election is who do you trust.”
