The election signs are everywhere and the number of candidates and sources of information can seem overwhelming. As leaders in our communities, chamber members can make a difference by encouraging all voters to mark their ballots by Oct. 15.
By voting, you are participating in the democratic process and learning about the people making decisions with your tax dollars.
"As a non-partisan organization, The Chamber won't tell you who to vote for, but we will continue to ask that you do vote," Chamber CEO Bruce Williams said. "Even if you're not sure who the candidates are, it only takes a few minutes to find out and begin to learn what they stand for. Democracy is not about being perfect. It's about being able to participate — something we are privileged to do as Canadians."
