ANDREW CALLS FOR POSTPONEMENT OF BY-ELECTION
Victoria, BC - Stephen Andrew, candidate for Victoria City Council calls for the immediate postponement of the April 4, 2020 By-Election.
“The global Covid-19 pandemic affects every aspect of our lives through restriction of movement, public gatherings and self isolation and quarantine. The consequence of these restrictions excludes significant groups of voters”, says Andrew.
“In a free and democratic society any election result is not valid if any segment of the electorate is afraid to participate.”
Andrew makes this call as other jurisdictions postpone elections and Victoria must take the most responsible action to protect public health and the democratic process.
