Election time is nearly upon us Canada. This Monday, May 2nd, Canadians will be called upon to help decide who the next Prime Minister of Canada will be. By now, most people are aware of who the candidates are. The current Prime Minister Stephen Harper is going head to head with opponents Michael Ignatieff, Jack Layton and Gilles Duceppe.
Synergy Marketing Consultants highly encourages all those who are eligible to vote to exercise that right. We do not, however, endorse any of the above candidates specifically. Instead, we believe that everyone should do their parts to voice themselves and help the nation make the decision for who should be the next Prime Minister.
Your vote really matters. We are a proud nation of people in – dare we say it? – the world’s greatest country. Problems with weather aside, Canada is known throughout the world as a classy, clean and friendly nation. We are multi-cultural, multi-talented and well-received in facets of arts, entertainment, sports and education. We are tops in providing jobs and rebounding from the recent global recession.
Most importantly, we are a free nation. Our freedoms give us the ability to choose who will lead our country. Although some may feel as if none of the above mentioned candidates will work towards securing their best interests, not voting at all ensures that your concerns will not be considered.
We advise that, at the very least, you take a quick look at the websites for each party who is in the running. Here…we’ll make it easy for you. Check out Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party, Michael Ignatieff’s Liberal Party, Jack Layton’s New Democratic Party and Gilles Duceppe’s Bloc Quebecois through the links provided here.
You have all weekend to make up your mind. But be sure that this Monday you make your way to the voting booth to cast your vote. If you are unsure of where to vote, be sure to ask around your neighbourhood. Most often, the polls are located in an area closer than you think! For some, it’s located in the school or library next door. For others, polls are in the very building they reside in!
In order to vote, you simply need to be a Canadian citizen and be at least 18 years old on election day. You should have already received a “Voter Information Card” in the mail. As well, you must be able to prove your identity and address at the polls. This Monday, be sure that you vote and help shape the future of Canada!
