Subject: responses: for your VOTING consideration: Civic Election / "School Trustee" candidates: questions

Hello once again good folks,  * Civic Election Day is TOMORROW, Saturday 15 November * 

For those who haven't yet voted, and may want more grist, attached find some information for your consideration in response to the questions I circulated in early November. I was both surprised and a little saddened that only two (2) candidates replied: 
- Larry Falls (Independent) 
- Janet Fraser (Green)
No one from any of the (other) major parties contributed their thoughts. Still, it is always worth the outreach and engagement, especially where the necessary societal benefits of public education are concerned :) 
[My original questions are included in both Fraser's and Falls' responses]

Here also find the Vancouver Teachers' Federation endorsed list, mostly Vision Vancouver candidates and two from the Public Education Project, which you may find useful. I am also considering both Green and COPE candidates in this category. 

There are a few very helpful, non-party websites that I have read through: 
- The City of Vancouver's Plan Your Vote (and for Election Day details)
- The Vancouver Courier's Candidate Profiles
I apologise that this missive is later in the week than I intended, and will try to answer any questions you might have by Saturday. Thanks for taking part in our civic democracy, however you choose to do it ! 

Wishing you all warmth, wellness and wonder these darkening days, and with thanks for your time :)
