安省保守党政府举办华人义工答谢宴

安省的变化,有些事需要数百年,而有些则只需要几年。

2010年7月,在Victoria Park Ave的一间Swiss Chalet内,多伦多市议员罗伯福特与哥哥道格福特在此会谈,要他参选市议员,而此时的道格福特并无从政意向。

2008年10月,多伦多媒体人万沐写了一篇号召支持保守党的文章,招致铺天盖地的恶骂。

然而变化很快!

2015年3月,反对韦恩性教育大纲的家长们举起了大规模反对自由党的大旗。

2018年5月,华人以在各族裔中绝无仅有地以83.1%的大比例支持保守党!

2018年6月,道格福特成功当选为安省省长。

忽如一夜春风来,千树万树梨花开。经过多年对政治的淡漠后及对保守党的误解后,华人发现自己的价值观和保守党的价值观原来如此相近:社会价值观上勤俭、温和、顾家、重教,经济上减少干涉,低税收,多开源,以国家利益为重,维持多元和睦,杜绝毒品伤害,……

政治觉醒后的 华人坚定地站在了保守党一边,并在随后的多次选举中发挥了历史性的作用:

2015年联邦大选,在全国通红的局面下,大多的万锦华人区保住了保守党一席;

2016年,世嘉堡省选补选,17年的自由党老区变蓝;

2018年安省保守党党领选举中,上万华人入党成为保守党党员,成为福特当选中的关键少数;

2018年省选,华人区全部选择了保守党,推动福特组成多数政府!

上台后的保守党也不负所望,在安省的各项事务中拨乱反正:取消碳税,降低税收,削减浪费,精简政府,减少管制,投资医院,增加病童救助,反对非法难民,打击枪支帮派犯罪,开放学校言路, ……,各项措施件件深得民心。

华人社区在政治中的作用也从未被如此重视。

为表达对华人社区支持对保守党的感谢,2019年3月26日,福特省长特地在紫金盛宴举办义工答谢会,并颁发义工纪念证书。安省旅游、文化暨体育厅长Michael Tibollo、老人服务厅厅长Raymond Cho、省议员柯文彬、Michael Parsa、白必勤、彭锦威、韦邱佩芳、Logan Kanapathi等出席。

福特在致词时说,省选中华人社区做了巨大的贡献帮助保守党胜选,这才让保守党有机会取得现在的各项成就。保守党执政后,降低税收,下调油价,清还债务,向世界的商业敞开大门。保守党政府创造积极的就业环境(而不是自己创造就业),从当选至今已经新生了132,000个就业。他常告诉省府的工作团队要爱人利物,尊重纳税人,节约纳税人的每一分钱。

福特说,安省正面临着前所未有的机会走向繁荣,希望在将来的数年内继续和大家一起建设安省,一起努力赢得下一场大选。

演讲结束后,亲民的福特省长为了让大家都能与他合影,在照相地点站了近一个小时,让每一个想合影的义工都能如愿。还周到的替每位合影者安排了照片编号以向摄影师索取照片。

各位省议员也都分别发言向义工们致谢。省议员柯文彬在会后特别提到,在省选中有成千上万的华人不计辛劳地为选举服务,由于场地和诸多条件限制,不能把所有义工请到场,但他心里永远感谢他们,并为他们骄傲!

本次的答谢会共有近四百位华人义工受邀出席,众多曾在一起奋斗过的义工们久未谋面,重逢在答谢会上格外亲热,互相交流分享胜选的喜悦和感受,庆祝自己在去年做出的正确选择。今年又是一个联邦大选之年,大家将继续努力为全加的天空变蓝加油。

义工Jacky说,华人对福特家族具有深厚的感情,一大批华人义工带着对实干家福特前市长的拥戴而支持保守党,在危机中,把希望寄托在他的哥哥道格福特的肩上,同时也因着对债台高筑,扭曲教育的自由党及韦恩省长的厌恶,而积极做义工,选出来一个蓝色的安省政府。这一年多的施政,可圈可点,还是受民众欢迎的。大家的辛苦,让华人的声音可以被政客们听到并重视。


晚会还安排了精彩的文艺表演。值得一提的是福特的微信公众平台也在今晚正式发布。
