Election Platform 2019 (launched on 16-Sep) <— start here to get an overview of the platform, and drill down as much as you like
Vision Green PDF (i.e. the long version <— this is the background policy document on which the platform was developed)
Kanata-Carleton Census profile (Statistics Canada)
Skeptical Science - Explaining climate change science & rebutting global warming misinformation (your first stop if you need to debunk climate BS like “it’s the sun”, “the climate’s always changing”, etc.)
Real climate - climate science from climate scientists (this gets deep in the weeds but is very informative if you’re interested in the latest science; it’s also where controversial findings are often first discussed)
Polls: 338Canada for Kanata—Carleton (<— don’t read to much into these - they make a lot of assumptions)
Open with something like:
“Hi, I’m a volunteer with the Green Party. How are you today? ___ We’re canvassing the area with Jennifer Purdy, our candidate. Have considered voting Green before?” OR
“Hi, I’m a volunteer canvassing for Jennifer Purdy of the Green Party. How are you today? ___ We’re out today to talk to people about the election. Do you usually vote? ____ This is a very important election. It’s not just a choice between political parties, but about what sort of future we have; for us, for our children and for the planet.”
Look for “no soliciting” or “do not disturb” stickers. Ring, leave leaflet or skip as seems appropriate / your comfort level.
If ppl indicate strong green, then ask if they’ll take a sign.
Note who you speak to if possible in order to properly indicate support (since not all ppl in a home vote the same way).
Mark homes of other party signs. It’s up to you as to whether to canvass here - remember that not everyone in a home votes the same way, but be prepared to acknowledge their sign. You could say something like: “Hi, I saw your sign but I thought I’d check to see if anyone else might be interested in the Green Party…”
Use the following short-hand:
N/H = Not Home —> enter as “Not home”. Mark against first person listed unless you know who you’re speaking to.
N/I = No interest —> mark as Weak Oppn & enter “No interest”
N/S = No soliciting sign - it’s your choice whether to ring - just be prepared to acknowledge the sign.
Undecided / some interest / considering —> mark as Undecided
S/I = Strong interest —> mark as Weak Green
Reserve “Strong Green” for people who commit to voting Green or indicate same by taking a sign or making a donation.
Hard no! —> enter as Strong Oppn; add party if known.
This is a test CO2 widget that I want to put on the website; however it is showing June 2018 reading, instead of 2019.
I’ll leave it here to see if it updates when monthly July data is in. https://www.show.earth/the-svante-co2-widget
