Only 24 hours left to tell your candidates you support higher education

| Comment

There are only 24 hours left until Ontario goes to the polls to choose its next government. In an election that was supposedly all about jobs and the economy, the leaders of the three major parties have said very little about our job creating and economy boosting universities. But you can remind them how important our higher education institutions are to Ontario’s future success.

Take a moment to visit OCUFA’s election page. In addition to analyses of the party platforms, expert commentary, and other useful resources, you can send an email to your local candidates telling them that higher education is important to you and to Ontario. One day may not be a lot of time, but it is time enough to remind our representatives of the economic, social, and democratic benefits of well-funded universities.

Of course, the most important thing you can do this election is vote. If you’re not sure where your polling station is, check out this handy poll locator from Elections Ontario.

Make your voice heard on June 12.
