Dear Mr. Lloyd,
I'd like to share with you an article I read in this past Saturday's Wall Street Journal about our Prime Minister. In particular, I'd like to draw your attention to the following observation made by the respected paper:
"Since establishing a minority government in January 2006, this Prime Minister and his Conservative Party have restored Canada's international prestige by increasing military funding and tenaciously supporting Canada's dangerous NATO mission in the Afghan province of Kandahar. No NATO ally has put more on the line against the Taliban, and Mr. Harper seems to sense not just the opportunity but the need for Canada to capitalize on it. There is a vacuum in conservative leadership in North America and on the world stage, and Mr. Harper is stepping into it."
Please take a moment and read the article in it's entirety.
We clearly have a Prime Minister we can be proud of. And a Government that is restoring Canada's reputation on the world stage. But it's up to us to ensure that the Prime Minister and the Conservative Party have the resources they need to take on an opposition that has shown it will do anything to take power.
The press we've gotten internationally is also a prescient reminder that after so many years of Liberal rule we finally have a Prime Minister and a Party who deserve our support.
I'd like to ask you to do as I have done, and support Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party of Canada right now, by making as large a donation as possible by following this link. A gift of $200 or $100 right now will go a long way to ensure that our Prime Minister has the backing of a strong party.
Please, take a moment right now to follow this link and make a donation on-line.
