Whether you like it or not … it’s election time!  The Ontario provincial election will take place on Thursday, June 12, 2014. Community Development Halton has produced these provincial election fact sheet series – a collection of 14 fact sheets on important provincial issues. The fact sheets are short and sweet, providing information and analysis on key topics, questions for candidates and additional resources. Please read them, share them, and don’t forget to vote!

Thanks to Social Planning Toronto for developing this series and allowing CDH to adapt it for Halton.

Also, check out Communty Lens #95 on voter turnout information from the 2011 provincial election.
