2007 Provincial Election Reflection

In the 2007 Ontario Provincial election, our director, John Pacheco, ran for Family Coalition Party of Ontario. He earned 651 votes (1.3% of the popular vote) in Ottawa West Nepean. John’s focus in the campaign was to educate and bring awareness to the plight of the unborn child. He did this primarily through the use of the campaign signs. (07.10)

I know it is customary to say that the electorate is “always right”, but I don’t believe that so I am not going to say it. Instead, I will say that the electorate is apathetic to politics so much so that the Liberal Party will be ruling us again with about 20% electoral support. Pathetic. As for my campaign, I always maintained that it would be about educating people about the humanity of the unborn child. 20weeks and a picture. Boom. For 30 days, I had about 40 of these signs scattered throughout Ottawa West Nepean. Would that cause people to vote for me? Not likely. Would it cause people to reflect on abortion? Definitely. Would it change perspectives? Probably. Did it cause controversy? Certainly. Of course the media was not particularly interested in reporting anything about it because they couldn’t spin it. If they were to show those signs in the papers or on TV, the game and match would be over. How do you argue for abortion when such a picture would make you look like a barbarian? So they did what reporters generally do when they cannot spin: they ignore. In fact, they ignored FCP candidates right across this province and that is why the Party failed to do better. In ridings where the FCP had more prominence and manpower, the candidates did much better. Next month, just like the election in 2003, people will forget the issues, forget the candidates, and forget almost everything about this election. In Ottawa West Nepean, they might remember it was the issue of faith-based funding for education which sank the Tories, but that’s about it, if that. But they won’t forget those signs or the message they communicated. On that score, I win hands down over all the other candidates. Mission accomplished. Thank you Mr. McGuinty for financing my pro-life campaign….By the way, all of you who send your kids to the separate school system and voted for Dalton McGuinty, you can probably kiss the separate school system good bye. I give it 5 years, if that.  – John Pacheco

  1. Thank you for caring enough to run for life and liberty John.

    I hope you read Dr.Somerville’s comments on life in yesterdays news. I liked what she said about Canadian citizens allowing abortions by dehumanizing the unborn. That is the truth.

    There seems to be only “a remnant” of caring citizens that vote for social conservatives these days. This says a lot about many of our so-called brothers and sisters. They should stop burying their heads in the sand.
    We hope enough will start seeing the light by the next election. Judgement starts with the Church .

  2. John,

    You had the courage to run a campaign on the dominant issue of respect for human life, complete with a picture of an unborn child on your campaign signs. This was an extremely principled undertaking, one that I believe carried the endorsement of God.

    Thank you for making such a stand and setting the Christian example.

    Sincerely,
    Eric

  3. Thanks Eric. I figured that, at the very least, the imagery would stay with people long after the election, unlike everything else about elections which pass in a week….

  4. Maybe if you didn’t smear breast cancer victims with accusations of sexual licentiousness, people wouldn’t consider you and cohorts objectively evil.

    You got what you deserved. Vive le Canada!

  5. I find that the Left rarely accepts any consequences to unhealthy sex. It’s the one thing that binds you all together.

    The holy sacraments of contraception and abortion prop up your secular religion, and you bleat and moan when someone points out what legitimate and peer reviewed scientific journals state.

    How pathetic.

    New Study Shows Abortion is ‘Best Predictor of Breast Cancer’

    WASHINGTON, DC, October 3, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons published a study yesterday entitled, “The Breast Cancer Epidemic.” It showed that, among seven risk factors, abortion is the “best predictor of breast cancer,” and fertility is also a useful predictor.

    You need to grow up and stop propagating your denials, while thousands of women suffer at your perverse sexual theology.
