I hear you!
high tuitions. Crowded classrooms. Outrageous GPAs. Lack of job opportunities
the very real concerns of post-secondary students in Canada today. I believe they have
become barriers to pursuing education, and if elected, I will work to bring
back the level playing field.
My drive to
do something about your concerns not only comes from hearing you, but from my
own personal story. I came from a working-class family. While neither of my
parents finished high school, they shared my dream of achieving post-secondary
education and getting ahead. At the time, perfect grade point averages weren’t
required, I could pay for tuition if I worked a part time job and worked full
time during the summers, my professors knew my name and there were plenty of
jobs when I graduated.
I know if I
was pursuing post-secondary school today – like my children are – that I would
not have been able to go. I didn’t have the GPA that is expected today. There
is big competition for few seats, and my parents couldn’t help me financially.

want to go to school can, and I look forward to working on this issue as the
Member of Parliament for Calgary South Centre.

IT'S TIME FOR A VOICE.
More and more Calgarians are realizing the impact of
not having an effective representative in Ottawa.
With the right candidate and campaign we can elect a representative that will
bring Calgary’s voice to Ottawa. Justin Thompson is that person, now the
official federal liberal candidate for Calgary West.
It's time for a voice at the decision making table.
Calgary is one of the most important economic centres in Canada,
yet we have had no voice at the federal decision making table for the last
decade. Paul Martin, however, has made a sincere commitment to work with the
West. The time has come for us to forge a new relationship with Ottawa. It’s also time to
make the federal government more relevant to Calgarians.
To do this, Calgary West needs a credible representative at the table who
understands both Calgary and Canada, and who will work hard for Calgarians.

of Resources from the U of C and has a BA and MA in Economics. Between his
education, background in the oil patch, and extensive readings, Jim has many
ideas for “Makin’ it Work” in Ottawa. Health Care, the Environment and
Democratic Reform are some of his key issues. He believes strongly in public
health care since it has been proven to be the most effective health care
system, but he knows there are ways we can make it work better.
