Questioning the Candidates

Ian with the Messy Desk has posted a list of election bulletins from various Canadian organizations. It's a diverse group, with very different viewpoints, but you'll probably a group or two that share your beliefs and priorities.

As an example of the sort of information you can get from this list, there is a page of sample questions for the candidates from The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada. Here are some of the suggested questions.

On marriage:
  1. Would you support the definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others?
  2. Will you take active steps to re-affirm the heterosexual definition of marriage?
  3. What will you do to protect the religious freedom of those who do not support same-sex marriages?

On respect for human life:
  1. What do you believe should be the legal status of the unborn child?
  2. Would you support the introduction of legislation to regulate abortion in Canada?
  3. Do you support the existing laws against euthanasia and assisted suicide?
  4. What steps will you take to support palliative care?

Several of the listed organizations have similar sample question pages.
