Since our Chapter deals with the municipal government on a regular basis for some issues, I believe it would be important to see which candidates share our interest in making our society better for everyone.
In order to do this I think it would be important to come up with some questions that are relevant to the Council of Canadians and ask each candidate. Their answers could be recorded or written down and then shared among our network. This can provide some more information to inform us who we want running our city council.
I understand there are individuals residing in other towns than Red Deer that are having elections next month, but the same questions may apply to those candidates as well. If we work together, some people residing in the jurisdictions who are having an election can ask their candidates.
Please email me all of the questions and I will distribute them to the rest of the list. If you believe them to be city/town specific, then please add which city/town you are from. I will organize them when I received them. If you want to send them in to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 6, then that would make it easier.
Thank you all for you participation
