Election 2015: Economic indicator stats to consider in this election

Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon: Special federal election section accessible online

  • Sep. 21, 2015 3:00 p.m.

Voters have less than 30 days to consider their choices before going to the polls in the federal election on Oct. 19.

Along with leader and local riding candidates’ profiles, valuable statistics on national and local economic and lifestyle indicators are contained in a special Black Press supplement distributed last week in print, and accessible online here.

For the record: In that section, bio information on Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon Conservative candidate Brad Vis should have indicated that he spent the last two years working for the agri-business developer Corpus Management Group, not one. The brief bio did not mention he has a bachelor’s degree in political science from UBC and a Master’s degree from Carleton University, specializing in governance.
