Trudeau has called a hasty election just around the corner on Monday, September, 20th. That leaves many Canadians, 18 and older, with less than a month to become informed on current topics and debates.
What’s running on the minds of Canadians everywhere what problems and cares are at the forefront of our nation’s concerns?
In this year’s election, the lives of workers should be our main focus. After a dire battle with COVID spanning since March of 2020, frontline workers, from healthcare to childcare, have undergone a flux of drastic policy changes leaving many low-wage workers in life-altering situations. We have seen employees on strike fighting for equal and fair wages, adequate scheduling, and protection from retaliation, harassment, and unsafe workplaces.
But, what is being done on this? While many of our federal leaders remain focused on the arrangement of health guidelines, and not the people directly affected by them. We must take action, make your vote count with the rights, protections, and lives of workers also in mind.
So if you’re ready to participate in this year’s elections and have your voice heard,
