The Federal Election polls for October 21st are starting to show a shift in who Canada may elect in the upcoming Federal Election.
The Conservatives are now polling ahead of the current ruling Liberals for the first week in over 4 years. The NDP, Greens, Bloq and PCC parties remain distant. However, the NDP and Greens are polling strong.
The latest Liberal leader Trudeau’s blackface scandal appears to be having an impact on voters across Canada and the Liberals and trending down. In addition, while Trudeau remains the top choice individually for voters as Prime Minister, he has lost significant ground and is also strongly trending down. In fact, 10 days ago he had minimally a 10-point margin which is now down to about 2.
Métis members in BC (and across Canada) it is very important to get out to all local Federal Election candidates and ask what their parties intend to do to advance for Métis people in Canada?
No parties are clear for Métis in the parties’ online platforms and do not allow the “pan Indigenous” discussion by candidates to mislead you. Most candidates do not even realize that when you say Indigenous it is not just about the local First Nations communities or their issues.
The time to ask and act is now.
We need to get out and vote on October 21st and the party you choose as your local Member of Parliament is your personal and confidential choice.
But without forcing real conversations for all parties in every Federal riding, it is clear Métis people are being completely forgotten about once again.
