The Ontario Elections take place Thursday June 7th, starting at 9 am.
The big question remains whether people will be voting, especially with all of the heat between the New Democrat Party and the Progressive Conservative Party. Both parties especially have released slanderous ads against one another.
Tammy says if she will or not.
“I will be voting. I feel it’s important if you wanna see changes made in your government and what happens in your country, you need to put your voice in.”
Although, there are individuals who aren’t voting. Heather says if she is or not, and why.
“I am not voting in the election, because I don’t know anything about politics, so I don’t really care.”
There are those who do and don’t vote, but there are some individuals who want to vote but aren’t eligible. Like Thomas, who is a permanent resident in Canada, but is not a citizen here. He would vote if he could, and he explains why it’s frustrating.
“It’s a little frustrating just because I’ve come across to here, it took me a lot of time to come and qualify for my right to live here. And I have a lot of opinions that I’d like to contribute with, and I’d like to have more power in that way.”
Jess explains her feelings towards it.
“I don’t think it’s helpful at all. I think it reflects negatively on the parties at hand.”
She explains what she would rather see from these parties instead.
“What their party platform actually stands for. I think that a lot of people aren’t aware of the parties platforms because of the slander ads.”
Polls close Thursday at 9 pm. You can check what polling stations to go to elections.on.ca.
