On October 21, 2019 Canada will be going to the polls in the Federal Election. Canadian citizens will have the right to pick new representatives to send to Ottawa. During the campaign you have the right to question and ask candidates why they would best represent your interests.
By tradition, your club leadership wishes PCDHFC to remain neutral on which party or candidates deserve support out of respect for the varied backgrounds and values of our 4,000 members and also because the club must work with whichever government is elected in the future.
Especially during the election period, we ask our members, guests and visitors to:
- be respectful of others’ opinions in a public setting
- not make representations on behalf of the club except by written approval of the club executive
- refrain from campaigning on behalf of any party or candidate while on club grounds
- all partisan material will be removed immediately from bulletin boards, walls or any club property
- no party workers will be allowed to actively engage members or users on our property
- no leafleting of any sort will be allowed on vehicles in our parking lot
With this understanding, we respect your right to wear what clothing, display any patches or badges you wish and talk with whomever you wish.
Policies, information that may be relevant to you
As parties make their platforms known, the club will endeavour to bring to your attention any policies or information that may pertain to our core functions: namely firearms policy, hunting and fishing rights, outdoor and environmental concerns. What you do with that information is up to you.
During the campaign, the club may choose to host various candidates and parties to provide our perspective, regardless of the party.
We encourage everyone to understand the issues at hand and to avail themselves of our democratic process.
