Electing a New Future

Voting is one of the most important (and not to mention simple) things you can do. It allows you to have your voice heard and it allows groups of people to be powered from the bottom up.

Voting is really important to Scouts Canada. In November, the Scouts Canada National AGM is an opportunity to vote on a variety of issues. This conference is a gathering of scouts who will represent their councils from across the country. These scouts will vote on various resolutions such as approving financial statements and approving the Chief Commissioner (Scouts Canada’s top volunteer). And these scouts are chosen by their peers – you!

If you are a Scouts Canada member who is aged 14 and above, you should have received an email called “Scouts Canada Election 2014: Pacific Coast Council – Voting Ballot”. Check your spam folder as it might have ended up there!

This year the 180th Pacific Coast Scout Group is putting forth three candidates: Brandon Ma (Past President 180th Pacific Coast Scout Group), Nick Pearson (Advisor) and Karina Lee (President-Elect 180th Pacific Coast Scout Group). Check out their videos to see what these awesome candidates are all about!

In addition to voting you can support our candidates by spreading the word! We will have posts on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube! Sure to like, share, follow and retweet!
