CCCB Releases Election Guide for Canadian Federal Election

September 16, 2008
As Canadian citizens, Catholics have an obligation to be interested in politics. They should exercise this civic responsibility by becoming involved in the electoral process and especially by voting.

The Conference does not endorse a specific party or candidate, but offers issues that voters should consider, and encourages Catholics to take the electoral process serious.
To read the guide, in a printable PDF format, click HERE.
You can also get in the election campaign spirit by taking twenty five minutes of your time to view online Kris Dmytrenko's Catholic Focus: Catholic Voters. Click HERE for that.
