November 4, 2008 marked a historic day for many citizens in America and around the world as Barack Obama, the first African-American, was officially declared the winner of the US presidential election. It has been an exciting time for us at Canadians For Obama – but this victory wouldn’t have happened without the dedication and support of all of you.
It’s been such a long journey for Canadians for Obama, but it has been worth every moment of it. We received calls from our volunteers across Canada and the States letting us know about how they were able to help out. One of the co-founders, Braeden Caley, who was in Washington DC and Centreville, Virginia informed me throughout the day how his Canadian team got out the vote on the grounds.
We’d like to express our sincerest gratitude for all that you’ve done thus far, whether it be phoning our neighbours to the South reminding them where to vote, driving long distances and dealing with American border guards just so that we could volunteer for the campaign, or just calling our American friends and family – this was all the reason for change.
