School Trustee and Municipal Elections – October 16, 2017
As you are all no doubt aware there will be School Trustee and Municipal Elections this fall. Although candidates do not have to formally declare they are running until mid-September, many have done so and more will in the near future. As in elections past we are providing the following information as a means of encouraging you to engage candidates at candidate forums, candidate events, when knocking on doors, by email and some may wish to organize their own candidate forums specific to disability-related issues.
The attachments below identify suggested questions for School Trustees and Municipal Candidates that can either be asked in person (at functions) and/or sent via email. The questions can be asked by individuals and/or by organizations with responses broadly shared. You may wish to indicate which candidates you believe, based on their responses are supportive of inclusion or more supportive relative to their counterparts.
We would be very interested in learning of the responses you receive so we might assess the climate across the province for advancing inclusive education and inclusive community life.
Your efforts in this regard are greatly appreciated.
