Mobilizing members to vote - By-elections
In July 2013, we encouraged members via an email campaign to vote to elect the next MPP for their riding. Ridings included:
- Etobicoke Lakeshore
- London West
- Ottawa South
- Scarborough Guildwood
For each of the ridings, we set-up an email form where members could ask candidates if in this election they would support:
- Maximizing and expanding the role of RNs to deliver a broader range of care, such as ordering lab tests and prescribing medications?
- Ensuring all existing nurse practitioner-led clinics are funded to operate to full capacity?
- Improving access to affordable housing?
- Ensuring people have a right to know about the existence of toxics in their homes, workplaces and consumer products?
We armed members to speak out for nursing and speak out for health by reminding them of the work done in our platform brochure - Why Your Health Matters.
