Here are some nice things people have said about me!
Why I support Rebecca Harrison-White
Emily Hunter Author, The Next Eco Warriors Eco-Correspondent, MTV Canada.
Rebecca Harrison is more than just a candidate for the Green Party.
She is an advocate, tireless campaigner, and an incredibly bright
She holds two positions on our Shadow Cabinet as both the Poverty Elimination Critic and Status of Women Critic. She has been an advocate in both of these areas for most of her life.
Rebecca has done a fantastic job working to develop the Green approach to the issue of poverty elimination, working with organizations such as Make Poverty History Canada and Canada Without Poverty. She has also represented the Green Party at debates and forums across the country.
We are thrilled to have such an inspired and articulate woman as a candidate in this important riding. Rebecca is an indispensable part of our Green Team.
Leader, Green Party of Canada
Hey Rebecca, I want to let everyone that hasn't had the pleasure of having you in their lives like I have, know what a wonderful person you are. You came into my life and my children's at a time when we had nowhere else to turn and have been there for all of us, especially my lovely Melissa that you have taken under your wing. You have a knowledge that goes way beyond your years and the fact that you share it with the people that are in need truly shows what a great asset you would be to our community and I can only hope that everyone that you come in contact with is able to see that. Dinner again once this is over and you have some spare time again.

Rebecca Harrison is an amazingly talented and dedicated individual and candidate. Whitby-Oshawa is very lucky that they have the opportunity to vote for such an accomplished woman. I look forward to continue to work with her in the future, as a Green MP!
Director of the Leader's Office Green Party of Ontario
I have had the privilege to work with Rebecca Harrison in two organizations for the past couple of years. Her dedication and work ethic is absolutely inspiring and second only to her positive attitude. Rarely have I seen someone put so much of themselves into causes that are close to their heart. The citizens of Whitby-Oshawa would have a fantastic Member of Parliament in Ms. Harrison. I am confident she would represent them with the passion and integrity all citizens should expect from their local representative.

Kenyan Politician Flora Terah Endorses Rebecca
Rebecca is passionate in her dedication to represent the constituents of Whitby-Oshawa. I am confident that she will act with the integrity, one of her core values. She is one of the most knowledgeable candidates in the Green Party, and she will continue to prove that Green Policies will be beneficial -- for our economy, our society and our planet! A vote for Rebecca is a vote for hope, for a positive future for our children and grandchildren.
Former Leader, Green Party of Canada
Elections, elections, elections most of us have a concern what will be next for us. The nice thing is we have choice to feel confident when we mark our ballot on May 2.
This election I have made my choice in a candidate that will best represent me and my community. A candidate that has the political knowledge, a desire to protect our environment and is a leader to boot.
Rebecca Harrison a leader, she has what it takes and a desire to represent us. Rebecca has acquired tremendous skills to be our person in Ottawa. I know in prior elections we have most likely followed the same usual pattern, voted in the same manner and then wondered, "Did I do what is best for me, my family and what I expect in our community?" Well this time I have more confidence than any other election when I vote for Rebecca Harrison. Because I will have a knowledgeable, eager and personable representative working on our best interests and the environment.

WHY REBECCA, WHY GREEN, WHY NOW?
Rebecca Harrison will be 28 years of age at election time. Although she is young she has a lifetime of political experience and public service. Rebecca was born into a political family and took part in her first municipal election at the age of 3 years. For the next 15 years of her life she lived municipal politics. With a father that was a politician and her mother that was a municipal administrator, Rebecca was immersed in political discussions from the very beginning. This early beginning and the special balance of administration versus political thinking has given Rebecca a very unique outlook on the world of politics. Rebecca has an understanding of what public service is about that is well beyond her years. Rebecca's early life experiences have caused her to have a deep sense of community. Her husband Chris and her have made Whitby their home and they have both worked tirelessly to make Whitby a better place for all that live there. Rebecca has become a strong advocate for the elimination of child poverty. She became a member of the Green Party of Canada because she saw it as the party most likely to affect the changes we require now for future generations.
For these reasons and many more: VOTE REBECCA, VOTE GREEN, VOTE NOW!

Rebecca is one of the few people I have met who is extremely intelligent and extremely down to earth at same time - a great combo in a leader! She already is one of the best things that has happened to Whitby-Oshawa and will be one of the best things that could happen to Canada.
I find this difficult to write, because I realize that I could write pages upon pages about why I'm voting for Rebecca! I met Rebecca almost a year ago, during one of the scariest points in my life. I experienced something that not only shook my faith in our country's political system; but my faith in humanity as well. And just when I felt like I was really all alone, Rebecca was there to listen to me and to support me. She was, and continues to be, a true friend and I cannot express how grateful I am for that. It is that kind, selfless nature that makes her the only candidate I would even consider voting for. Rebecca is one of the most inspirational people I have ever met, and we are so fortunate to have such a beautiful person working towards bettering our community! Congratulations for all your success, Rebecca, I know you're going to change the world in a big way!
Rebecca has demonstrated that she is serious, informed, committed and can inspire others to act for the good of the community and the environment. She knows who she works for and she respects their most important concerns.
Rebecca proves that youth do care about their future. She is the beacon for future generations. She truly understands what is a stake if change is not brought about.
Rebecca has a passion and knowledge about her community, her party and the issues that matter. She will stand up for all in our community.
I Think Rebecca is a dynamic young leader who understands policy and her community. I fully support her.
I commend Rebecca Harrison-White because she has an inbred natural passion and a spark for politics. Not 'politics' in the typical dog-eat-dog sense all too common in today's society, but more credible politics... focusing on democratic principles, parties policies, real issues, and with eyes wide open on the literal needs of the future. And we need people like Rebecca not only in Whitby-Oshawa, but across the country. They're out there. Vote for your future. Green, that is.
Saw Rebecca at the CPAC/Maclean's debate tonight. She was great! Articulate and talking about issues from perspectives that represent the future Canadians need and want.
She is one of the few politicians who are not sleezy or dirty or will cheat you out of a promise. I truly believe she will do what she says she will do, and she will stand up for those things that need standing up for! 130%! Jasmine Hamade Brampton I support Rebecca Harrison and all her endeavours in her life! She has the gift to lead! Best of luck!
