About Canada's Election on September 20, 2021
As we all know, there is a federal election taking place in Canada on September 20th.
We hope that all of our thousands of members will take part. Each of our members will be participating in different ways: some as candidates, some working for candidates, others working for Elections Canada, and all participating as voters in this important event in the democratic life of our nation.
We hope that each of our members will take this opportunity to vote and join in building the future of our country. Each of us will make our own decisions about how to vote. We will all make our choices for any number of reasons.
As a Zionist organization, MERCAZ-Canada asks that you consider another factor in your choice: how will your candidate look at Israel and our Jewish life. If you have any questions about a candidate or political party, call the candidate’s office or check the party’s website, they all have information about their policies. Additional information and links to statements and parties can be found at https://cjpac.ca/ or https://www.cija.ca/election/.
We wish our next government every success and hope that they, along with our global community has a much easier future than these past 18 months have given us.
Please vote, participate in your ridings and in our country. Voting is a special right that many in our world do not yet know, while others who once had this right, have had it taken from them.
Let us not take for granted the opportunity to express ourselves and our hopes for our nation.
G'mar chatimah tovah.
