Elections Canada is holding 5 By-Elections across Canada on April 3rd, 2017.
An excellent way for small parties to break through the disproportional elections barrier is by making a splash in a by-election. During a general federal election, everyone has their own riding to think about. But when there are By-elections, a grass root party like the Greens can build itself a major advantage by strengthening our network by beefing up our numbers with cross border cooperation.
Here’s the thing: if you can help get a neighbouring Green candidate elected during a by-election, it will be that much easier to get more Greens elected in 2019 ~ perhaps even the candidate in your own riding!.
There’s less than a week left!!!

How To Help
For those living close by, volunteering your time, whether to:
- help out at events,
- hand out flyers,
- knock on doors (canvass),
- stuff envelopes,
- put up signs,
- to answer phones
- or whatever …
…even just a few hours here and there could make all the difference.
Attend events & debates to cheer them on!
No matter where you live, donations will help any of these candidates.
The one thing Greens are not using to the fullest is one of the most powerful tools we have at our disposal: social media.
Many of us are frugal about sharing things to our social media feeds because we are concerned about annoying our friends. What people don’t realize is that Facebook, Twitter etc. don’t show everything we post to all of our friends and followers.
Even if you live on the other side of the country and don’t know a soul in the candidate’s riding, liking, retweeting and sharing will help them … because the more people engage, the more the candidate’s Social Media platform will spread their posts to more of their own followers!
Do you want to see Green videos go viral? Share them!
Do you want to build a meme? Share it!
Twitter tip: a ❤ isn't as good as a Retweet.
EVERY time you share anything on Twitter or Facebook etc. you will be helping help increase the candidate’s social media reach ~ and increasing her odds of being elected! .
