Canada Votes 2011

Information for voters:

Voting is an opportunity to shape the future in a way that best represents your interests. 

If each person represents their own best interests, then we can have a clear picture of the average issues. 

e.g. 1)  With a population of 1000 people, the results are 50% or 500 people like the color blue, 25% like red and 25% like yellow.  This means simply that more people like blue, so if we paint 50% of the town blue 25% red and 25% yellow then all of the interests are met.  

e.g. 2) If only half the people voted,  40% that like blue, 10 that like red and none that like yellow, and we paint the town 80% blue and 20 % red then, it would not represent the population just the population that voted.

e.g. 3) contrary if everyone votes for something that they think is important for someone else, they are not representing themselves either, and the end result is not accurate.

With that said I challenge each person to educate themselves with the objectives of each of our representative parties’ platform. (See list below)

Q. What do I do if none of the parties have included my concern in their platform?

A. For a party to create a solution they must know there is a problem, with enough of the population voicing there concerns to all parties, each party can then formulate a plan.     Talk to your local Members of Parliament (MP), or government agency that best suits your concern, or the political parties directly; contact information located on the parties’ websites.
