The upcoming Provincial Election, Tuesday, October 4th will provide an opportunity for us to work together and ensure key issues impacting the recreation and park sectors are addressed with community leaders and election candidates.  You are both a citizen and recreation and/or parks professional or volunteer and participating in the provincial election is an opportunity to let candidates know that recreation and parks matter.  It is important to remember that getting engaged in the election process is not about taking on an adversarial role but rather the opposite.  It is an opportunity for you and others to become champions of recreation and parks and to enlist the support of candidates.  You can use this opportunity to convey your concerns and your willingness to work with them to address issues.  If a candidate is successful in his/her bid to secure a seat as a Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA), they will be better informed and able to fulfill their promise to do what they can to help build a healthy, active and vibrant community.
