Why Should We Vote in this Election?

We are at a crossroads. In the coming weeks, Ontarians must weigh the consequences and decide which path to take. Your vote counts in determining the path that is ultimately selected. If you are a student, a parent, a senior, an immigrant, a patient, a worker or simply someone who feels strongly about his or her beliefs, then the Ontario Provincial Election of 2018 is your opportunity  to shape the future. Your vote is your voice.  Speak your mind, vote!

Election Date: June 7, 2108
Advance Poll dates: May 26 to May 30

Questions to consider when deciding which candidate to vote for:

  • Education is important. What should and should not be taught in physical health Education curriculum?
  • Sky high prices of housing leaves majority of the people out of the market. How is it sustainable for millennials and new immigrant?
  • Is minimum wage the answer to the bigger problem of the rise in cost of living?
  • With the senior population ballooning over the next decade, how sustainable is our health care system?
  • Can we afford to cut down on services and leave more people vulnerable?
  • Is it prudent to run multiyear deficits?
  • Are we preparing our youth for the jobs of tomorrow? Is the post-secondary education in line with the current needs of work place?
  • How do we replace aging and inadequate infrastructure?
  • Who has the best policy for the environment, what impact does carbon pricing have on the cost of fuel?
