"In my years of being a Board Member and active participant in the Vancouver Branch of the World Federalists I have discovered the amazing energy that is created when like-minded people get together to work towards a common goal. It has been an honour to be involved with this organization. The experience, years of dedication and commitment that members of this branch have, speak volumes of their passion for the ideals and aims that World Federalism encompasses. Motivated by the enthusiasm and support that fellow members have shown me, I have decided to run for President of this branch. In doing so I understand the responsibility that this entails as well as the honour that it is to represent this Organization and its philosophy. I wish to take the time to express my gratitude for Leonard Angel who has set a marvelous example of what a great president of any association should be. His example is one I respect and hope to live up to.
As President of the Vancouver, Canada branch, my vision is to promote World Federalist ideals and educate the public and political figures as to the benefits of supporting our missions. My goal is to increase our exposure with the aim that those in the higher echelons of power who harness the ability to affect and change political policies will adhere to our World Federalist principles. In doing so, they will hopefully ratify the necessary legislation to bring British Columbia, Canada and the whole planet under one unified Global Government capable of dealing with the issues that affect everyone who inhabits this Earth.
The Vancouver branch is one of the most active of Canada; if the zeal and enthusiasm of its members have shown me anything, is that it does not take many to create the type of positive change we envision. Margaret Mead’s words come to mind whenever I think of the World Federalists I have had the pleasure of working beside: “never doubt that a few committed citizens can change the world; in fact it’s the only things that ever has”.
So, I wish you join me and fellow World Federalists in our endeavours so that together we can create the ripples of change that eventually become the waves of transformation not only politically but also in the ways of thinking of all our human kin. Thank you once again for your support and with gratitude I look forward to seeing the more peaceful, safe and just world that we all desire."
