Streeter: What were some important issues for you this Federal Election?

Voting is open until 7 pm in Vanderhoof

Voting is open and Vanderhoof residents are making their way to the polling booths.

The Express spoke to four voters outside the Nechako Seniors Friendship Centre on Oct. 21, after they had cast their ballot to understand the issues that swayed their vote this year.

Below are their responses.

 

Annika Wallace — “I support the Green Party. Because I want to make sure building and construction related things are given some thought and there is a process before they are approved. I also support them because they will make sure we reach our climate targets set in the Paris Agreement.” (Aman Parhar photo)

Daniel Snell — “Main issues for me are keeping our taxes low and to put the borders where they are supposed to be. I don’t support Bill-52 and its especially bad for towns and farmers around here.” (Aman Parhar photo)

Maylah Thompson — “One of the main issues for me this Federal Election was abortion. I am not for abortion. Other important issues were health care and having less income inequality. Apart from that affordability and not raising taxes.” (Aman Parhar photo)
