No point to voting strategically in Carleton, says Green candidate

UPDATE (Oct 17): While the Green Party thinks it’s futile to vote strategically, the Liberals want to convince you that’s not the case. Here’s an ad posted to Twitter on Saturday morning by the Chris Rodgers campaign.

Chris Rodgers Tweet - October 17


Green candidate Deborah Coyne says there’s no point in voting strategically in Carleton because Conservative Pierre Poilievre will be heading back to the House of Commons “no matter what”.

Coyne made the comments in an “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) session on Reddit today. Continue reading


Damage to Conservative candidate’s signs

Several of Conservative candidate Pierre Poilievre’s signs were damaged along Stittsville Main Street on Saturday night.

It is an offence to remove or damage official election signs. People found damaging or removing signs can face charges under the Criminal Code.

CANDIDATE Q&A: Pierre Poilievre (Conservative Party)

EDITOR’S NOTE: We’ve been publishing short Q&A’s with each candidate. We want to give our readers some background about each person and what motivates them to run for office.  In our final Q&A, we meet Conservative candidate Pierre Poilievre.


Do you live in the riding?  What neighbourhood?
Yes, I reside in Greely.

Why are you running in this election?
 I’m running in this election because I believe that with the world economy in turmoil, our Conservative Party offers a low-tax, balanced budget plan to protect Canada and help people in Stittsville and across Canada get ahead.

You’ve been out knocking on doors and meeting people in the community – what would you say are the top three issues with Stittsville voters?
I’ve knocked on thousands of doors in Stittsville and I’ve been hearing that people want us to keep taxes low, maintain a balanced budget and protect the country from terrorist threats.

If elected, what do you hope to accomplish during your term as MP for Carleton?
If elected, we will continue to keep taxes low for Stittsville families and local businesses.

Who is your political hero or role model? Why?
Winston Churchill

What’s the biggest challenge about campaigning in Carleton?
It has been a pleasure to get out to all parts of this new riding to meet voters on their own doorsteps.

In the past you’ve taken on some major responsibilities and high-profile positions with the government. How will you ensure that you have the time to effectively represent constituents in Carleton?
One of the best things about being a local Ottawa MP is that you never have to leave home. Besides attending riding events on evenings and weekends, I host monthly constituency days where I book full days of meetings with constituents to discuss their issues and priorities.
