A majority of voters have elected you the new Prime Minister of Canada. May the blessings of all that is sacred grace your days and light your path.
You have before you a window of opportunity. Use it well. Waste not one moment on petty grievances, needless insecurities, paranoia or fears that may come your way, no matter the spin or swirl. Light a candle in the political heart of this country once again and let it shine a mirror of goodness for all to experience.
We are a vast country, but we are but one of many. The world needs compassionate leaders more than ever. Be one of them.
Be strong, yes. Courageous, of course. Act with clarity and decisiveness, absolutely. But remember the heart of kindness and caring that beats within each member of this nation and help us, as a country, to come home to that again – because it is who we truly are, and because each and every member of this nation matters, no matter who they are or where they are or where they’ve come from.
There once was a Canada that people in the rest of the world looked to as one that could be admired, whose policies could be taken as a template for their own, whose way of caring was sought after. We lost that in the political mist of yesterday. Act with heart and sincerity in ways that bring us back to our place at the world table, and once there, let us as a country with you as our leader act with even greater clarity, diplomacy, and humanity than ever before. Let us, once again, be a positive contributor to the wellness of the world.
You were elected because people in this country chose to believe in you. Be the beacon of light you were destined to be. Make Canada proud.
Blessings to you, your family, and the path you now walk.
I wish you well.
