You’ve got the right to vote if you’re a Canadian citizen. And you can vote for federal, provincial, or municipal candidates. Under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, you’re entitled to exercise your democratic rights. Hence, you shouldn’t disregard your voting right when there’s an election in the country. “Section 3 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a section that constitutionally guarantees Canadian citizens the democratic right to vote…”
Why do you vote? Well, you vote to choose your preferred candidate who reflects your best interest. But beforehand, you need to study the platforms of political parties to understand their priorities and promises. Then choose the right one that you think can serve and reflect your interest.
Canadian political parties contending for this year’s federal election are:
- Liberal Party
- Conservative Party
- Bloc Québécois
- New Democratic Party
- The Green Party
Each one of them is aspiring to get the highest parliament seats to govern the country. However, either the Liberal or the Conservative parties is poised to win this election, as the other parties’ winning chance is quite remote.
Voting is a right you possess, so take advantage of it and elect your favored candidate.
