Response from a ‘Coalition Government’ member
Thank you for writing to me about this very important issue. We stand today at a crossroads in our shared history.
Elected with just 38% of the vote, Stephen Harper acts as if he has 100% of the power. Instead of attacking this economic crisis with a meaningful stimulus package, Harper chose total inaction and cheap political tricks. This isn’t what Canadians voted for. This is not what working families need in these tough times.
New Democrats are working with the other opposition parties to put forward an alternative government – a coalition for real change. The agreement on how the coalition government will work is fair and balanced. And the action plan to stimulate the economy is prompt, prudent, competent, and most importantly, effective.
Please join us in a rally to support democracy and the formation of a coalition government to deal with the economic crisis in this country. There has never been a moment in our history as Canadians where more has been possible. You are the majority. Be part of the change. This Saturday noon our voices will get louder. Join thousands of progressive Canadians this Saturday who say “I’m part of the 62% majority!”

Thanks again for writing to me. We can only make change with the support of people like you.
Thank you for your reply, which is the first one I have received.
To continue my support of what you and the others are trying to accomplish on behalf of all Canadians, I have taken the liberty to post your reply on my blog with the hope more people will get involved.
Thank you for standing up for us! I know I will sleep better once the coalition forms government, as will at least 62% of all Canadians.
