Even though the federal election has not been officially called, nor election day announced, for all intents and purposes the campaign is on. This summer all of the federal parties are in full swing campaigning across the nation in attempts to win the favour of Canadians.
Many national commentators, both Christian and secular, have been saying that this is the most important election that Canada has seen in some time. We could not agree more. Many things are on the line with this election: our economy, key moral issues and Canada's role on the international stage - especially as it pertains to our friendship with Israel. Because of this MY Canada is organizing several initiatives to help equip you for effective civic engagement during this election.
Firstly we would like to officially announce the www.keepourland.ca site. This site is an on-line faith based resource outlining 10 things you can do to be a responsible citizen and influence this upcoming election for righteousness sake. The site also has quick links to help you get registered to vote, find out who your candidates are, a calendar of related events happening across Canada and more.
Please take a moment to check the site out here and share it with your friends. The site will be developed more over the next 2-3 months.
LEADERSHIP LUNCHEONS WITH DR. STOCKWELL DAY AND DR. CINDY JACOBS
Secondly, MY Canada is hosting two national leadership luncheons over the next month regarding the election. The first will be held in Toronto with Dr. Cindy Jacobs and the second in Vancouver with the Hon. Stockwell Day. These luncheons are designed to give leaders tools on how to equip their people for responsible civic action during this election. If you are a leader in any capacity you are invited!
