It is election year and it is clear that the election is already on.
This is true for 2 reasons.
1 / Political parties are already putting forward platform points and unofficially campaigning.
2 / Nomination campaigns are in process. This is a big deal. Why? Let us explain.
In most ridings the person who wins the nomination of the traditionally favoured party in that area will very likely be the next Member of Parliament there.
Practically this means that in ridings where candidates have not yet been nominated the future MP of this riding is being determined NOW, not next October.
We need people governing our nation that are going to stand for Godly values.
Furthermore, the leader of whichever party gets more MPs becomes the next Prime Minister.
TRANSLATION: What is happening RIGHT NOW across Canada at the nomination level will have a huge impact on our future and who our Prime Minister is for the next years.
As one of your New Year resolutions we encourage you to get involved in the nomination election of the favoured party in your riding.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED IN NOMINATION ELECTIONS
Here are some EASY steps on how to get involved strategically with nomination campaigns in your riding.
1 – Find out who the favoured party is (aka: who is the party that wins most often). Just ask around if you don’t know, you will find out quickly enough. You can also call your current MP’s office and ask them how many terms they have been in. If they have been in more than 2 terms, they are definitely the favoured party. Click here to find your MP by postal code now.
2 – Find out if the nomination for that party has already happened. You can do so by calling the party or by asking your MP if he or she is from the favoured party.
(Note: The above parties are not the only parties in Canada, they are parties that won seats in the last election and therefore would be the currently ‘favoured’ party in those ridings. The purpose of this communication is NOT to endorse any of these parties but rather encourage you to get involved in the parties of greatest influence in your riding at the nomination level. This is where you can have the greatest impact. At general election time we encourage you to support the person who best represents your values not matter which party they are from. Other national parties also include the Christian Heritage Party, People’s Party and others. For a full list of national parties click here.)
3 – If the nomination campaign in the favoured riding has not happened, get involved. Find out who the candidates are and support the one that aligns with your views.
4 – If the nomination has happened then your window has closed on this one. The best thing to do now is begin praying for the election and supporting Godly candidates running for nominations in other ridings.
