Reader letter: Important for everyone to vote in municipal election

Article content

I certainly hope all eligible voters turn out for the upcoming municipal election.

Article content

In my opinion, municipal elections are perhaps the most important in many regards. Municipal councillors, mayors and board trustees; these are the people that make the day-to-day decisions regarding our city.

Article content

Take a few moments and do a little research on the candidates and cast your vote. Ambivalence and frustration with our system should not deter anyone from voting.

Is our system perfect? Absolutely not.

But compared to certain other countries around the word where citizens have no say at all, our system in Canada is not that bad.

Get out and vote. it matters.
