The Consulate would like to invite any and every Canadian to take the time to vote in this election. The following links will give you the information that you need to make that happen.

That would be non-permanent-resident expats only who are allowed to vote. Or did I miss a change in the law?

Actually, Sharron, we have been very happy lately with the Mexican mail system. It has improved greatly and seems to be quite reliable now. Give it a try!

I'm all for casting my vote but cannot help but wonder about the mail system. I hear mail originating from Mexico is really "snail mail" and cannot help but wonder how my vote will make it on time.

Vote for who? All parties are a joke! Canada is doomed no matter what party is elected and why most of us expats moved away from there!
As immigrants from Canada with sufficient funds to live here in Mexico and other countries, most of us could care less what happens with the Canadian election since most of us have already transferred our cash out of that tax slave country before the greedy government decided that you were no longer a resident and got their paws on it.
Many families are moving away from Canada and being replaced by immigrants who cannot afford or be accepted into most other countries in the world since they will only become a burden to that country, although, these poor immigrants are more than welcome to come to Canada and get all sorts of freebies. How nice.. Good luck in the future Canada!

Please vote, some of the ridings are too close to call and Stephen Harper's government is closer than ever to a majority government. And has made it clear that he wants to eliminate public funding of parties which will inevitably lead to a system in which big business increasingly influences politics. Just ask our american friends the damages excessive amount of money has done to the democratic process in the US.
While I respect all political views, usually expats tend to vote ABC (anything but conservative) so for us still in Canada, PLEASE VOTE !

Votez, s'il vous plaÃ®t !! Certains circonscriptions sont vraiment serrÃ©es (spÃ©cialement dans la rÃ©gion de QuÃ©bec oÃ¹ les conservateurs ont fait un percÃ©e lors de derniÃ¨res Ã©lections). Les Conservateurs veulent Ã©liminer le financement public des partis, ce qui donnerait plus de place aux grandes corporations pour influencer notre dÃ©mocratie. Demandez aux amÃ©ricains les problÃ¨mes qu'ils ont avec les faramineuses sommes d'argent dans leur systÃ¨me politique.
Donc, VOTEZ SVP, pour qui vous voulez ... mais il n'y rien de plus Ã©loignÃ© des valeurs quÃ©bÃ©coises que la plateforme conservatrice.
