Different strategies but the same objective for Autowise candidates
We need to coordinate our activities on the ground, to make sure the volunteers have a safe place to land after a day’s workMcKinnon explained during the opening of his electoral office in Gatineau, insisting that all sanitary conditions be met.
The basis of our campaign is to meet Gatineau residents at their doorstep, and that’s what many volunteers will do right away.The outgoing Liberal MP added.
On the Conservative side, Michel Gauthier, candidate in a Pontiac ride and spokesperson for the party in Ottaway, explains that the selection was made without an electoral campaign office.
It is a decision made in the context of the pandemic. We want to reduce the chances of contracting COVID-19. Everywhere in Quebec, the slogan is: as much as possible, avoid opening offices, and work from home.
For the New Democratic Party (NDP) and the Canadian Green Party candidates in Ottawa, the choice not to have a polling station was dictated as much by the pandemic as by economic reality.
This is particularly the case of Dennis Giroud, for NPDSean MacArthur, for the Greens, in Pontiac., and based on
It was an economical choice. […] We decided that the most effective way to get our message across was to invest our money in connecting and visiting people on the site and on social media., explains Mr. Mac Arthur.
You don’t really need a campaign office.
According to M. Mac ArthurIt doesn’t stop you from going up
Dynamic and creative campaign.
To guide? Next week, the Green candidate will take his paddle to meet voters.
I will be paddling 150 kilometers north of our Maniwaki route to Ottawa, meeting people and hosting events on the beaches further south to improve our view in a slightly different way.
Participation in events, door-to-door, election posters… these methods do not really change for the candidates at the head of this short campaign.
And electoral office or not, the goal is above all to meet the voters and convince them.
For Mr. McKinnon, it is about defending the record of the outgoing government.
I think this is a good start for the Canadian Liberal Party, both in Ottawa and across the country. We have taken very important steps, both in terms of long-term care for the elderly, in terms of funding our programs, in terms of economic recovery.
In the region, Mr. McKinnon will campaign particularly for a National Capital Act It is expanding to protect Gatineau Park and create a sixth link between Ottawa and Gatineau.
You are well beyond our capabilities and our bridges are in urgent need of love. […] So the idea that we can visualize the future of a huge area without adding capacity and infrastructure is very wrong in my opinion, and that is why for 50 years, experts […] He told us that we had to increase the capacity in the area.
Conservative candidate Michel Gautier, for his part, insists on trams and recruitment into the federal public service. But he is also worried about a labor shortage. He said the programs the Liberals put in place during the pandemic, such as the Canada Emergency Benefit (CEP) or the Canada Economic Stimulus Benefit (CEP), have shown their limits.
[...] On ne peut pas les blâmer, mais il faut éviter de créer des programmes qui font en sorte que ça enlève le goût d’aller travailler.","text":"Il y a plein d’entreprises qui cherchent de la main-d'œuvre.

In the rural part of the county, I have people who own restaurants that are closed half the week due to lack of manpower. People stay at home. […] We can’t blame them, but we must avoid creating programs that make him suppress the urge to go to work.
Internet access, health and of course the environment are at the heart of the priorities Sean MacArthur.
It is a vast territory, and the facts differ between rural and urban areas. But I hear three things: the first is that people don’t want elections […]The second is that they are very concerned about climate change and how to build a more sustainable economy for the future. at the end, [ils se demandent] How are we going to be able to support our hospitals, our quality education, our infrastructure when we have so much debt.
candidate NPDDennis Gero, for her part, sensed voters’ frustration with a Liberal government that has not done enough, she says, to tackle climate change. The oppressive heat of recent days has convinced her that this issue will be on everyone’s lips when it comes to going to the polls.
