The Election

The following information about the provicial election was received from the provincial office:

 As part of the information provided to Districts to assist with local advocacy efforts related to the upcoming provincial election on June 7, we are pleased to provide you with Party Platforms that are available at the time of sending this information.

Since not all platforms are readily available, we thought it would be useful for you to refer to an article from McLean’s, dated May 4, outlining “platform-type” information from the Liberal, New Democratic and Progressive Conservative parties.  Here is the link to that article:
