Elect Lethbridge began as a way to inform citizens of the 2010 municipal election and to serve as a platform for discussion and engagement. Now, as Lethbridge continues to grow and change, we see the city becoming a player in wider elections, both provincial and federal. There is a saying, “all politics is local”, and here at Elect Lethbridge we hope to create a platform for politics both close to home and far away whether that be Edmonton or Ottawa.
Thus, we have broadened our own mandate from “to enlighten the citizens of Lethbridge of municipal events and controversies”, to, “Engaging the citizens of Lethbridge on all things political.”
We aim to provide information on what affects the city and its people, be it those running for council positions, provincial office, parliament, or broader questions about the system and democracy of elections.
We are interested in creating a broad community of authors and want to keep the discussion as open and inclusive as possible.
There is no screening, we only ask all posts and comments remain respectful, thoughtful, and accurate. We do reserve the right to take down posts that violate the preceding principles.
This forum is here to open our community, and to increase the level of discussion, interest and knowledge about the dear city we call home.
