During the election, I took on the volunteer role of Phone Canvassing Coordinator. I was so impressed with the dedication and efforts from volunteers across the province and country!
To encourage calls, we had a variety of incentives, including a prize for the top volunteer caller.
I’m pleased to announce the winner of “Top Volunteer Caller”: Rick Zingel! Rick will be receiving a pair of tickets to the Gala Dinner at our conference in September.
Rick commented on his experience volunteering with the GPO:
“I did it because I believe getting our first MPP [elected to Queen’s Park] is both the next most significant milestone we need to reach for the GPO, and also the most effective way of using my time to contribute to the Green effort.
I never cease to be amazed at how polite Canadians are. I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of strongly negative reactions I received out of all the people I talked to. I would encourage everyone who wants to make a big impact from their living room to consider participation in this way for the future.”
Thank you Rick!
Honourable mentions: Larraine Roulston & James Mihaychuk and many others who dedicated their time to phone calling during the election: Thank you!
