Windsor Voters Prepare to Head to the Polls


With just five weeks to go before the next federal election, voters in Windsor were largely unaware we are headed to the polls.

AM800's Kristylee Varley spoke with shoppers at Devonshire Mall with one person saying "I've lost interest in the last few years, I used to donate money to the party I supported but not anymore."

Party leaders spent the first day of the campaign rallying their troops in different parts of the country.

The mud-slinging has already begun with Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer saying Justin Trudeau and the Liberals will say anything to get re-elected.

Meanwhile, Trudeau says a vote for the Tories would be a step backward for Canada, and N-D-P Leader Jagmeet Singh says Canadians can't trust either of them.

Green party Leader Elizabeth May weighing in, says the October 21st vote is the most important election in Canadian history

In Windsor, voters Varley spoke with said they were mostly concerned about education and care for seniors. "I'm concerned about education since I have grandchildren in school and anything that they can do for serniors," said one women.

Speaking to some students, one said "education and healthcare is what I will be keeping an eye on."

Voters will elect Canada's 43rd government on October 21st.
