What does your party believe? I’d venture a guess that only a small number of Canadians who vote actually bother to read their party’s platforms… or the platforms of the other parties. Even if we concede that politicians break campaign promises all the time, shouldn’t you know what your party is promising before casting your ballot?
Read the platforms here:
- Liberal Party of Canada
- Conservative Party of Canada
- New Democrat Party of Canada
- Bloc Quebecois (in French)
- Green Party of Canada
Then, when you’re done, check out the candidates in your writing. Read up on their voting records, if they are already MPs. Read their blogs, find their Facebook pages, check out anything they’ve written or published. Make sure you know who you’re voting to send to Parliament on May 2nd.
An uninformed electorate gets the government that it deserves. So get informed.
