Two days the Federal election was called, I went out on a limb and decided to run as a member of the NDP in my old riding where I grew up. I went out and collected signatures (which took me a few days) and ended up with more than the 100 necessary. I then went to my local NDP office and asked if I could run as a member of the NDP, whom I had voted for every election since I could vote.
I have always wanted to work for the Federal Government. I have taken their tests and apply for all the jobs that are posted that I believe I am qualified for. I even once considered the military. But never to any avail. I am right now working a decent job in the private industry, but it has never been my dream. So I decided to go for a seat.
This is a very rough first draft of an article I wanted to write. I am not looking for it to be all that accurate, as much I am looking to elicit an emotional response from readers. My goal is to have an article puplished in a local paper, though I don't want to be paid for it. I thought I would get some opinions first.

Who wouldn't want this guy as your MP?
First Post, does anyone have all the names? I think I do, but may have made errors.
