Everybody has their own reasons to vote in the upcoming election.
CKDM hit the streets to find out what issues were most important to people in the Parkland.
"I think health care probably. It's in such a mess, it's underfunded and understaffed."
"Maybe they can help senior citizens more or something like that."
"I think housing because a lot of the people are living in housing that is not adequate for us to live in. It needs upgrading."
Meanwhile, others couldn't limit it to just one thing:
"Everything I guess. We're seniors and we're getting screwed no matter what."
"I'd say everything because that's what Canada needs."
People of all ages in Dauphin think that everyone should go and vote:
“If you don’t cast a ballot, then you don’t have the right to complain.”
“You can’t complain if you don’t vote.”
“I think it’s important for our population to vote so this way we can continue to build strong families.”
“Can’t complain if you don’t vote.”
"It's the Canadian way. You should vote, you have to if you want to complain."
Canadians go to the polls on September 20th. Be sure to listen to 730 CKDM all day long for up-to-the-minute election coverage, including comprehensive coverage at 8 when the polls close, with CKDM's political correspondent James Blake.
