The GPO thanks & congratulates phone canvassing volunteer Rick Zingel

Share:

Dear friends, 
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!
