Smoke Em Out!
Last night really got me in the campaign mood. Great speeches by Jodie Emery, Rex Weyler, and Jane Sterk. Highlight of the night for me was getting up to give a personal reason for running (Inspiring other young people to get involved, as Jodie already got out the anti-prohition message). I took the mic and Marc Emery gave me a shout out. Giving credit where credit is due, I probably wouldn't be running if it wasn't for Marc and Jodie, they have been incredibly supportive and I really appreciate it. I got to meet about 20 or so candidates (Including the other young candidates, Trevor Loke of Surrey-Newton and Fraea Bolding of Chilliwack) and I have all my papers in order. I will be filing with the local office on Wednesday most likely.
