Dear Claire Louise,
I do not know you.
You have never met me, and it is possible you've never seen my name in this game.
I don't know if I like you.
I don't know if you'd be a good CP for eCanada.
I don't know if you are simply some attention-seeking rascal.
I don't know if you just want to add a medal to your player profile.
I don't know if you would be trustworthy in a position of influence in eCanada.
I don't know whose best interests you have at heart - yours or eCanada's.
Simply put, when it comes to you, there is just simply too much I don't know.
And even if I knew the answers to these questions, and liked the answers to the questions, I still would not vote for you in the January CP elections.
Why? Because like much of eCanada, we don't like Interlopers.
Just go ask DMV. No matter how hard he tried, or how good his words were, or how good his programs were, eCanada (rightly or wrongly) found suspicious motives to everything he did. No rock was left unturned, and no stone unmoved, and even when nothing was discovered, something was always found.
We in eCanada just do not like those who parachute in, who have not been part of our community, and earned our friendship and trust. You see, we want people who have worked with us, walked among us, and suffered alongside us, to be our leaders. We want you to earn your stars and strips, so to speak, with us.
Not with some other community of people. As far as your credibility goes in eCanada, it is zero. As soon as you gained your eCanadian citizenship, your credibility in our eyes became an instant zero - because your time with us was zero. It doesn't matter what you accomplished in another nation, who you were friends with, what heroic deeds you did. It just doesn't matter.
Maybe in 3 or 4 months time I might find you an honourable candidate, worthy of my vote.
But until you have shed the image of Interloper, and gained one of an eCanadian, only then will our community accept you as one of us, and only then will you receive the proper consideration needed to win the office of CP.
For now, you are an Interloper, and you are not welcomed to participate in our CP elections in January.
