REQUEST FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE IN THE FEDERAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN FROM CUPE BC
The federal election is swiftly drawing to a close and the race in BC is as tight as ever. As you may have seen in recent polls, we are likely headed towards another minority government where Jagmeet Singh and the NDP can put forward a progressive vision of Canada by holding the balance of power.
We have several key ridings in our region and there are upcoming events to help ensure we continue to have progressive representation in Ottawa after September 20.
The event details are as follows:
Labour Canvass with New West District Labour Council
Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge – Phil Klapwyk
September 17 – 5:30pm to 8:30pm
22386 119th Avenue, Maple Ridge
Labour Canvass with Vancouver District Labour Council
Vancouver Granville – Anjali Appadurai
September 18 – 5:30pm to 8:30pm
5590 Victoria Drive, Vancouver
CUPE Leaflet Drop with CUPE BC Secretary-Treasurer Trevor Davies
Burnaby North-Seymour – Jim Hanson
September 19 – 2pm to 5pm
4340 Hastings Street, Vancouver
Please note that each of the events has a Facebook link where you can get the details and sign-up to attend.
If you are interested in participating but are new to this work or are nervous to speak to voters, please know that we can pair you up with someone who will do that talking. Also, the final event is simply a leaflet drop at which we will just be dropping off materials to the doors of known supporters. We will do our best to accommodate anyone who wants to participate in a way they feel most comfortable!
Any questions about these events can be directed to the CUPE Election Coordinator for BC, Steve Beasley, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 778-903-7394.
