This coming election will be close – so – PLEASE VOTE.
Kitsilano covers several Electoral Districts (commonly referred to as ridings): Vancouver Centre, Vancouver Granville and Vancouver Quadra. If you’re not sure where to vote, Elections Canada web site www.elections.ca has information. Just key in your postal code.
The web site covers just about everything else you need to know: the candidates for each of the Electoral Districts, who can vote, how much you can donate, the times the polling stations are open, etc.
What the web site does not cover is who to vote for. For that answer you need to consider all the federal government topics which interest you. Then compare this to the platforms of each candidate, found on their web sites. This will only take a few minutes, and may be better than what you read in the media.
Not every candidate will likely agree with everything you want. Just choose the one who meets most of your issues. You can also consider who would make your best Member of Parliament by who you would like to meet in person to discuss your issue. And good old discussion with friends and family can help you decide.
