“As Canadians, we believe Harper is good for Canada, he is good for the Jewish community, he is good for Israel, and he is good for the world. We want to help him stay in office,” said the leader of the campaign, Dan Illouz, a strategic consultant and CEO of Di Consulting.

The crowdfunding campaign hopes to raise $20,000. The group plans to use the funds to send 10 people to Canada just prior to the election to get out the vote for Harper Canadian Jewish communities.

“One of the greatest Jewish values is to know how to say ‘thank you’ when someone does something good for you. This campaign is here to say thank you to Prime Minister Harper. People all around the world have the opportunity to participate and donate and to help us say thank you,” Illouz said.

Under Harper’s leadership, Canada has been an outspoken supporter of Israel in international bodies such as the United Nations. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in June that Israelis believe the Jewish state has “no better friend than Canada.”

Harper, who leads the Conservative Party, faces a tough re-election campaign against Tom Muclair’s New Democratic Party and Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party. The election comes Oct. 19.

    Wow, so proud of you. Thank you for supporting Prime Minister Harper, the best PM we have had. It is scary to think that either one of the other two would be PM of Canada. THAT would NOT be good for Canada. We will pray that you have much success in your campaign.

    Ya good luck with that Ex-pats, your fighting a losing battle.

    These particular ex-pats should be banned from coming back to Canada on the basis that they are terrorists.

  • Lyndia Edwards

    Thank you. It is very difficult to find good things said about our Prime Minister as this country is sliding into communism. He is the best Prime Minister this country has had in the last 50 years.
    thank you for supporting him.

      Lydia you’re right, it’s difficult to find good things said about Stephen Harper. That’s because he hasn’t done anything good! As for communism, you wouldn’t know it if it bit you on the arse…

      Worst excuse for leadership since the whisky swilling bigot Sir John A. left the job!

      • I just got done explaining to a friend how closed-minded, self-righteous and presumptuous progressives are. Thanks for providing a live example.
