Vue d’ensemble de la circonscription

Historically a safe Conservative seat, Kelowna—Lake Country has been held by Conservative MP Ron Cannan since 2004. Cannan is seeking re-election in October.

Notre objectif est de fournir des informations locales précises concernant les intentions de vote de l’électorat, afin de sensibiliser les électeurs canadiens et québécois pour qu’ils fassent un choix éclairé le jour des élections.

Néanmoins, nous n’avons présentement pas la capacité de mobilisation ni de sensibilisation au Québec francophone. Nous souhaitons toutefois fournir des outils à un maximum de Québécois et de Québécoises francophones, afin d’obtenir un engagement de la part des partis politiques pour qu’ils travaillent de concert en faveur du progrès social après les élections.

Pour ceux et celles qui voudraient agir ou prendre la parole dans leur communauté, nous vous invitons à accéder à la section des circonscriptions sur notre site Web pour voir comment vous pouvez vous impliquer.
