Recently, we blogged about Jehovah’s Witnesses standing on your doorstep. Well, there is another frequent visitor who might also be met with less than enthusiasm – a political candidate.
However, they too deserve our respect and our thanks. Our system of parliamentary democracy depends on citizens who are willing to suspend their daily lives, make the huge commitment and take the huge risk of running for political office.
One such citizen is Anita Vandenberg, who returned to Canada from half-way around the world to take the risk of running for Parliament.
Her account is amazing: informative, funny, moving, and ultimately, inspiring.
Read about what it is like to run for political office by checking out Anita’s story, Running for Office: A Candidate’s Journey in the November/December issue of LawNow.
