Questions of Importance to Rural and Small Town Ontario in the Federal Election
We’re now officially underway with a marathon federal campaign. If you find yourself organizing or attending an all candidates meeting and are looking for questions to pose that are relevant to rural stakeholders we’ve prepared a set of 10 questionsthat correspond to the top ten prioritiesfrom our recently completed survey.
We have invited each of the four main federal parties to respond to the questions with respect to their party’s position and platform. We will post any responses we receive.
