Why Voting is Important
   Voting in an election is your democratic right and your choice. Our city and our lives are shaped by the outcome of the 2017 Municipal Elections. Casting your ballot for a mayor, city councillor and school board trustee means you are participating in choosing the leaders that will make decisions about policies and programs that impact your daily life.
