Faith, Education and Politics

John Betts, MLA for Moncton Crescent, shares his experience as a Christian and as a politician. He talks about what it is to be a Christian politician, why should Christians be involved in politics and how one can be a successful politician without compromising his Christian values.

There are several issues which John touches: the right to life and abortion (did you know that the waiting list for adoption in New Brunswick is about 8-10 years, while almost a thousand babies a year perish in abortions?) the education (and the defeatist attitude, which most of the school districts have towards our youth,) and also - about people's involvement; how voters' input could make things better. Because, legislators can't see all and know all; the government is way too large even in such a small province as New Brunswick.
