From coast to coast to coast tonight
Canadians rejected division and negativity. They rejected cuts and austerity and
they voted in favour of a progressive agenda and strong action on climate
change! Regardless of how you cast your ballot ours is a team that will fight for all Canadians. And to Canadians in Alberta and Saskatchewan know that you are an essential part of our great country. I’ve heard your frustration and
I want to be there to support you. Let us all work hard to bring our country
together. In the years ahead, our team will work hard to build on the progress made by the Canadians who came before us. We will champion Canada in all its diversity. We will give voice to the
voiceless and in every decision we make as your government we will always put
this country and its people first. We will fight for all people including
people like Dean. These last few days I’ve done rallies across the country and in a few of them I’ve told Dean’s story. Dean had voted Conservative his entire
life but this time around he decided to vote Liberal on behalf of his daughter.
You see, he understood that this election was about so much more than just the
next four years, that this election is about the next 40 years.It’s about the
kind of Canada that his daughter and her kids will grow up in. But tonight I want
to say this to Dean: I need to earn your vote not just your daughter’s, and over the
coming years I plan on doing exactly that.
