Who do you vote for?

During the 2011 municipal election campaign, I attended the Crofton all-candidates’ meeting. I sat next to a man named Jim who was keeping score about what each candidate said. He explained his system to me, which turned into an education on how to vote.

Jim showed up at Chemainus’s all-candidates meeting last week where he offered great advice for my campaign. I look forward to more conversations with him.


Here are Jim’s criteria for choosing candidates. If you’re not sure who to vote for, try it.

And here are some resources for your research:

  • One Cowichan — This is the same group you’ll see waving VOTE signs at the roundabouts. They’ve done a brilliant job of engaging the public. If there’s increased voter turnout on Saturday, they can take credit.
  • Cowichan News Leader Pictorial
  • Cowichan Valley Citizen
  • Mayoral debate — Roger Chin, who is running for school trustee, recorded this mayoral question and answer forum.
  • Shaw TV profiles — For those who prefer to watch a video…


November 15th at these locations from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
