    Oakville Votes - Make Your Voice Heard

    My husband told me that Rob Burton held the door open for him at the GO station this morning. It got me thinking about the importance of voting. This is your chance to make your voice heard and advocate for the government that you believe will make Oakville better than it already is.  Apathy can be such a destructive behaviour. Fortunately, residents of Oakville have a history of using their voice to create an amazing environment for us all.  The removal of the proposed Oakville power plant is a perfect example of how residents have successfully advocated for themselves.

    There are a number of important issues being debated this election.  The major ones are as follows (in no particular order):

    1. Oakville's growth and how it should be managed
    2. Oakville's finances and how they should be managed
    3. Preserving Oakville's natural environment
    4. Funding of the new Oakville Hospital
    5. Preservation and expansion of town services and art and culture

    These are important issues that deserve to be addressed by the strongest government possible. If you are lucky enough to already be a resident of this fantastic town, do yourself a favour and make your voice heard on Monday October 25th.  Oakville will thank you for it!

    Most of the candidates have websites containing information on their platform.  To view election details and a list of the candidates running in your neighbourhood, visit oakville.com (a fantastic resource for local news) or click on this link. You can also check out Oakville Beaver election articles here or tune into your local Cogeco channel which has been airing debates and candidate information over the past few weeks.

    Hope to see you at the polls on Monday!

    Regards,
