Dear Yanis


I have tried to contact you for two months but your e-mail is still full; I thought i would try one more time because october 2 2020 is the last day that green party members in Canada has the opportunity to vote for an outstanding socialist candidate Dimitri Lascaris , and member of the Progressive  International
