The federal election is coming up, and I have met a lot of people in my time who have said things to me which basically boil down to “Oh I’m voting for X because that’s how I’ve always voted.” I think that’s super valid, and if that’s the way you vote, that’s fine. But I would encourage you to take a look at the actual policies of each and every party and really ask yourself which one resonates with you the most. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with voting differently this year from how you have in the past, if the party you’ve been voting for no longer feels like the right choice. To that end, I will provide a link to the official platforms of each of the major parties in our riding.
I would encourage you to really read through each and every one, or at the very least give them all a quick skim.
