In an earlier post, John gave various good reasons why we need to vote at municipal elections. A friend of mine recently gave me another good reason: many provincial and federal politicians start off their careers at the municipal level. Then, once they’ve gotten some exposure and recognition in their community, they’re better able to jump to the big leagues of politics.
Do you want to see more pro-life candidates running for Parliament in your riding? Then start by electing pro-lifers at the municipal level and help them work their way up the ladder. Municipal politics is like a breeding ground for future federal and provincial politicians.
