Talk:Ontario Votes 2007: Interview with Family Coalition Party candidate Mark Morin, Chatham—Kent—Essex
Thank you for your interest in my campaign. Mark Morin Family Coalition Party Chatham Kent Essex
Why have you chosen to involve yourself in the political process? Why did you choose to run in this constituency? I have been conflicted in past elections because there were no candidates I could vote for with a clear conscience.
What prior political experience do you have? What skills and insight can you bring to office, from other non-political positions you may have held?
I have been an elected committeeperson for the Canadian Security Union and an appointed Rep for the CAW. I am experienced in responding to the concerns of those I represent.
Which of your competitors do you expect to pose the biggest challenge to your candidacy? Why?
What makes you the most desirable of all candidates running in the riding? My best asset is that I am not a modern day politician. I believe in saying straight out where I stand on the issues. I believe in truth as opposed to the moral reletivism that is so prevalent today.
What do you feel are the three most important issues to voters in your riding? Are these the same top three issues that are most important to you? What would you do to address these issues? Education Economy Agriculture and industry
I would add fighting to end the tradgedy of abortion and providing women with choices they can live with when facing an unexpected pregnancy.
What should be the first order of business in the 39th Legislative Assembly? Ending legalized abortion
Are the property taxes in your riding at a fair level for the amount of services received in the municipality? No.
How can the province lead the way in stimulating job creation? Providing incentives to businesses to create jobs and encouraging the feds to reintroduce good legislation like the Autopact. We are reaping the rewards of bad agreements like FTAA and NAFTA. Capital is flowing out of Canada to countries with cheap labour and poor conditions for workers. In return we get substandard products like antifreeze flavoured toothpaste.
What are your views on the mixed member proportional representation (MMP) referendum? In favour
What role, if any, does "new media" play in your campaign, and the campaign of your party? (websites, blogs, Facebook, YouTube videos, etc) Do you view it as beneficial, or a challenge? Any medium that makes our message more accessable is very positive. I am excited by the potential to reach more youth by these means.
Of the decisions made by Ontario's 38th Legislative Assembly, which was the most beneficial to your this electoral district? To the province as a whole? Which was least beneficial, or even harmful, to your this riding? To the province as a whole?
