Democracy is not just a question of having a vote. It consists of
strengthening each citizen’s possibility and capacity to participate
in the deliberations involved in life in society.
My public life is before you; and I know you will believe me when I say, that when I sit down in solitude to the labours of my profession, the only questions I ask myself are, What is right? What is just? What is for the public good?
|Why should I become a Municipal Councillor?|
The municipal council is the governing body of the municipality. The council should reflect the diversity of views and opinions that naturally reside within the municipality. Too often this is not the case and decisions are made that do not fully take into account this diversity.
|How to Vote|
To vote for council, an elector must be 18 years of age on election day, be a Canadian citizen and have been a resident in the municipality for three months preceding election day.
