Get Involved: Join the Campaign for an Informed Vote and People’s Empowerment! —

The electoral system and the monopoly media privilege the parties in the Legislature by providing millions of dollars from the public purse and free advertising to run their campaigns. Meanwhile, independent candidates like Laura Chesnik or small parties are treated as second class and deliberately hidden from the electorate.

This status quo blocks the people from decision-making and is increasingly distasteful to the polity. In the 2014 provincial election, 57 per cent of eligible electors in Windsor-Tecumseh abstained from voting, to say nothing about those that held their noses and voted for what they considered to be the “lesser evil.” Let’s make a break from these politics of disempowerment and affirm that there are alternatives to the current state of affairs and direction for Ontario.

Laura’s campaign is based on the principle that we as working people can speak for ourselves and must have a say in the affairs of our community, city and province. Join in this work for an informed vote and people’s empowerment.

Laura’s team is out flyering in Windsor-Tecumseh during the day and every evening from 5:45-7:00 pm from now until June 6 to let electors know Laura is running and what she stands for. Join in! There are many other ways to participate. Let us know what you can do — we look forward to hearing from you! Contact Laura@empoweryourselfnow.ca.
