Our actions matter, and so does our vote, because it can turn our country’s government towards greater justice. Our vote can lead to greater economic security and opportunity, or marginalization and hopelessness – for the peoples of Canada and for our brothers and sisters in need around the world. In this booklet, learn more about what the Catholic Church teaches about seven key topics: human dignity • poverty • homelessness • health care • Indigenous issues • newcomers • the environment. As you prepare to cast your vote in the federal election, fi nd out how the various parties plan to address these issues. Your voice matters – so for heaven’s sake, vote!
